Following from my previous post about the upcoming Winter Music Conference, culminating in the Ultra Music Festival at Bayfront Park in downtown Miami, I'd also like to highlight a few other late March events taking place around Miami Beach:
The official dates for the 25th annual Winter Music Conference are March 23 to 27, 2010. A few other great events taking place this month are the Miami Book Fair, the Miami Film Festival, and the Sony Ericcson Open Tennis Tournament in Key Biscayne.

The Winter Music Conference is one of my personal favorites, featuring one of the largest indoor/outdoor music and DJ events in the world. The only other events that can rival the diversity and scope of this five day music extravaganza are Mardi Gras in Australia and Carnaval in Brazil. In 2009, we had almost 2,000 artists and DJs in Miami Beach. This year will see major events once again scheduled at the magnificent Mansion nightclub, Set Nightclub and Lounge, and the Cameo Theatre in South Beach. The official host hotel will be the recently restored Eden Roc Hotel located at 4525 Collins Avenue, in the mid-beach area of Miami Beach (right next door to the historic Fontainebleu Hilton).
Be sure to also check out the amazing Oceanfront music events scheduled at the Nikki Beach Club located in the South of Fifth district along Ocean Drive. The National, the Clevelander, the Shelbourne, Skybar at the Shore Club, and Louis Nightclub at the Gansevoort Hotel will also be hosting some of the world's top spinning talent. A few of the featured DJ's this year are Tiesto, David Guetta, Armin Van Buren, Eric Morillo, Carl Cox, Passion Pit, Sasha & John Digweed, Benny Benassi, Fedde Le Grane, Kaskade and Paul Oakenfold.
