EDM fans gear up for Miami Music Week

For the Miami scene, the last week of March is the year’s biggest week. Countless artists, along with thousands of music-loving fans, will gather in the beautiful Miami sun to enjoy hundreds of events in all kinds of venues across the city. From gigs to pool parties, there’ll be no shortage of exciting things to do and places to be, all culminating in the city’s three-day-long Ultra Festival.
Miami Music Week
First held in 2011, the festival has now officially been going for over a decade, and in that time, it’s only got bigger and better! This year, the event will be celebrating its 10th anniversary–the 2020 Week having been canceled because of COVID–and you can bet there’s a lot to be excited about.
The DJ Mag Epic Pool Parties, which will feature guests such as Dennis Ferrer, Sonny Fodera, and Andrea Olivia, will run every night from Wednesday the 23rd to Sunday the 27th. The National hotel will also be hosting a series of pool parties across those same dates. If pools aren’t your thing there are also boat parties–such as Bermuda’s Anjunafamily– or if you want to avoid the water altogether, why not check out one of the many Miami nightclubs that will be hosting all kinds of events, both big and small.

Choosing where to Stay For
One of the most daunting things about attending an event like Week is knowing where to stay. Now, Miami is a big city with many places to choose from. Miami has hotels, Airbnbs, rental condos, and just about anything else you can think of. So, where is the best place to stay with all that in mind?

Well, of course, this hugely dependant how long you’re staying for, what your needs are, and what your budget is, and while we can’t go through a list of every hotel in the city, we do have a few things to keep in mind when choosing a location.
The first thing we want to mention is events. As we’ve said, the city will be hosting hundreds of events literally over the course of its week, but the chances are you’ll have your preferences. Look about and find out which events are for you. Many are hosted in hotels while others are dotted about in venues across the city, but either way, you’ll want to make sure you can get to the events that matter to you.
That means planning your transport and accounting for traffic. Of course, if you’re only attending between the 23rd and 27th, then traffic shouldn’t be such a concern and ought to still obey standard rush-hour timings, but if you plan on staying for the Ultra Festival, you’ll want to give this some extra thought.
The other main factor to consider is budget. However you look at it, attending events like this is, for some, prohibitively expensive, and if you’re looking to get that cost down, then you’ll need to give a lot of thought to where you’re staying.
That being said, you obviously shouldn’t just pick the cheapest place you can find and call it a day. Miami is a lovely city, but like all large Urban centers, it has its rougher areas, so we advise doing lots of research, finding reviews of wherever you plan to stay, and, where possible, finding out what the locals think.
Of course, it’s worth saying that is coming up quickly, and, for some, it may be too late to book and get reasonable prices. Don’t worry, though! The event is held every year, so if you can’t make it in 2022, now is the perfect time to start planning for 2023. And if you are going this year, then be sure to have a great time!
