It's time for Miami Music Week! Each year, thousands hit the streets of Miami to partake in the festivities leading up to Ultra Music Festival - it’s like a raver's right of passage to attend. Some warriors do both, but many opt to just fly in for the legendary sets being played throughout Miami during the week leading up to the festival! You honestly can’t go wrong, and being in Miami in March is a great way to usher in the warmer weather and feel those festival vibes awakening worldwide!
Miami has long been a dance music epicenter, and for good reason. From the ornate walls of Wynwood to the Caribbean influenced cuisine and nightlife, to world-class clubs like Space Miami and Oasis Wynwood – you’ll find yourself immersed in a colorful coastal playland swirling with electronic sounds and ravers from ALL over the world!
