Miami WMC Guide

Whatever you make of it, there's no party experience in the world like Miami's WMC week. Like cramming a whole Ibiza season into one week-long blitz of non-stop hedonism, you'll find sun-soaked poolside jams, dark twisted club sessions, boat raves, beach parties and the biggest dance festival in the States all jostling for your attention. Outside of our own killer events programme at The Shelborne, here's our guide to the best of the rest. Remember for discounted tickets see www.wantickets.com/djmag
