COVID-19 has been wreaking havoc on this year’s festival season with Winter Music Conference now joining Ultra Music Festival and SXSW in cancelling/postponing their 2020 events. While this pandemic has many people panicking and governments taking swift action, a good amount of Miami Music Week parties are going to go on as planned.
As we highlighted before, the majority of MMW events are taking place at private venues, leaving the fate of the parties at the promoter’s discretion. Unfortunately for the Get Lost crew, their event was to be held in the district of Hialeah who put a moratorium on public gatherings and effectively forced the cancellation of this year’s event. While the 24 hour Get Lost Miami event was sure to be a killer party, organizers stated that they will not be seeking an alternate venue as they “will not compromise the Get Lost experience in any form.”
Luckily for the thousands who were looking forward to MMW this year and are still planning on attending, there are many other parties that will not only be hosting exceptional talent, but are sure to get even rowdier now that attendee’s schedules have been freed up a little.
Here is a short list of some of the MMW parties that will be going on in spite of the COVID-19 fears. As many know, sometimes in the face of uncertainty, you just need to rave.
Music On Pool Party
This pool party has a stellar line-up curated by Marco Carola at the absolutely stunning Surfcomber hotel. Tickets are available here and all of the parties at the Surfcomber this MMW are listed here. Trust me when I say that this is a can’t miss event. I have had this circled on my calendar for months and I will definitely be there.
Drumcode Label Showcase
If you are a techno fan, then you are already very aware of the madness that is going to ensue at the Drumcode showcase hosted at the legendary Club Space. This will start as a label showcase for the Drumcode crew and turn into a 36 hour party to close out MMW. Tickets are available here and all of the events at Space are listed here.
The World Of Drum and Bass
The Beat Camp crew is coming together with United D&B and Formation Records to put together a truly heavy event celebrating the 30 year anniversary of Formation Records. This is your chance to get down to some massive basslines by drum and bass legends like Drumsound & Bassline Smith, Crissy Criss, Mampi Swift and many others. Tickets are available here and all of the Beat Camp parties can be found on their Facebook page.
Mau5trap Pool Party
The beautiful Delano Beach Club is playing host to the Mau5trap team for this year’s Mau5trap MMW pool party. The lineup is nothing short of spectacular. Deadmau5 is performing a solo set as well as one with Steve Duda as their BSOD project. No Mana and i_o are both treating the party to their sounds and the rest of the lineup is just as good. You can get tickets here and the rest of the Delano Beach Club parties are listed here.
Grit Daily MMW Brunch
Between all of the parties, you’re going to need to regroup and refuel. So, join us at the LaMuse Cafe and art gallery to indulge on the delicious spread and open bar!
