With the Winter Music Conference and Miami Music Week converging in the Magic City, together they spawn hundreds of parties, concerts, workshops... attracting hundreds of thousands, that's right, hundreds of thousands of music lovers, performers, artists, DJs, and industry reps from all over the world.
It all culminates with ULTRA, the world's most famous outdoor electronic music event.
What Is Miami Music Week?
To call this "Music Week" is a major understatement. This is party central in steroids over a week long and then some, of highly charged events, a collection that keeps growing year after year. This week-long affair features almost every major artist in the electronic dance music scene. Hundreds of thousands of revelers converging in dozens of venues from South Beach, Miami Beach, Wynwood and beyond. This year, it's all happening from March 25 to 31, 2019.
Official MMW events were featured at the Delano Hotel in the past, the "Miami Music Week Hotel" at two venues: FDR the boutique hotel's subterranean lounge and at the Beach Club for the open air, beach and pool parties. This year's official venue is TBC.
Much like Art Basel, the fun spreads around as hundreds of parties and events, official and unofficial pop up during the week in many of the surrounding hotels.
Miami Winter Music Conference
On its 34th year, this is the Electronic Dance and Music Industry top gathering and the largest of its kind and happening concurrently and under the umbrella of Miami Music Week.
It features hundreds of DJs and artists and an in-depth schedule of panel discussions, workshops and seminars for industry delegates, and of course, parties. For 2019, the ">Faena District and Faena Hotels will be the home of the Winter Music Conference, which as of this year has been acquired by the organizers behind Ultra Worldwide, this no doubt will galvanize the WMC as the premier event for the dance music industry.
Can anyone attend the Winter Music Conference? The WMC strives to bring together industry professionals and music consumers, and for the first time, two separate segments will be featured, WMC Industry and WMC Access. WMC Industry events as the name implies will be dedicated to working professionals looking to network with their peers and attendance is by invitation / application only. WMC Access allows everyone that is interested in music production, DJing, the music industry, tech, and culture to gain access to the leading players in the industry. You must register and obtain a badge through the WMC Website.
There are hundreds of events during Miami Music Week and the Winter Music Conference, so how do you work your way through that maze? If you are set on a specific number or artist, you need to plan in advance. Check the line-ups to see who, what, where is happening when, and if anything calls, get tickets ASAP! However, many of the line-ups are announced quite late, you need to keep checking.
In terms of venues, you will be partying in some fantastic settings: our stunning beaches, the epic night clubs, on the water aboard a mega yacht, hotel pools...
