MIAMI MUSIC WEEK 2013 GUIDE

The unmissable parties that you need on your radar!

It’s back. America's most important electronic music gathering is returning to South Beach in Miami. The Winter Music Conference 2013 (and its wider nomenclature Miami Music Week) will be host to the industry's hot shots — the DJs, producers, promoters and label owners pulling the strings of this international emporium we call dance music — their arms (and minds) wide open to another onslaught of Miami madness.

2013 sees Ultra Music Festival grow even bigger, spreading itself over the two consecutive weekends either side of WMC week, with headline sets from Swedish House Mafia, Deadmau5, Armin Van Buuren and Tiësto.

Of course, the fun doesn't stop and start at Ultra. Parties on South Beach and Downtown will span house, techno, bass, electro and trance at all our favourite stomping grounds — with some fresh new faces to book. We've separated the wheat from the chaff to collate your tip-top, one-stop-shop WMC party calendar. So grab your sunnies and slap on some lotion. We're in Miami, beach!
