09 Apr Miami Music Week 2018: It Was Time
Miami Music Week, the hottest week long music event for fans and industry people in Florida. Discover our experience from our first MMW!
As we wrote in our Miami Music Week 2018 preview blog, Miami becomes the hottest destination in Florida for a week. Inclduing Ultra Music Festival which turned 20 this year… but we didn’t expect a great, spectacular surprise: the Swedish House Mafia reunion on the last day of the annual event.
This year music week took place from March 20th to 25th and, alongside hundreds of thousands of people, we were there for various events to cover plus meet our fans and industry friends.
1. MK Presents Area 10
On Thursday which was our first day in Miami Beach, we covered Marc Kinchen (MK) Presents Area 10 at National Hotel, the Detroit house icon played alongside Camelphat, Will Clarke and more. Plus special guest Diplo which was an unexpected appearance.
2. Chuckie & Friends
The following day we covered the Chuckie & Friends showcase hosted by Revolution 93.5 FM. DJ Chuckie played alongside Nervo, Jay Hardway and more. His special back 2 back guest was none other LAIDBACK LUKE who together played an amazing throwback set for the Miami faithful.
3. More Events
We went to numerous other events, including Nu Crew at Shots Miami, Space Yacht at 1306 Miami, Destructo’s Breakfast Club which was held at 6 am and finally NYC x MIA on our last day in Miami.
4. Random Fun
On Saturday, we ended up on a yacht party with Paul Oakenfold and other label execs thanks to our good friend Jen. We cruised by Ultra Music Festival with an amazing view of the event from the water.
