Magnetic's Quintessential Guide To Miami Music Week 2017

These are the premiere events taking place this year at Miami Music Week.

Before I had ever attended Miami Music Week, I was told that it was known for basically being the entire Summer of Ibiza squeezed into one week. That was Miami. People were right. So for those of you that have never been, brace yourself. For you veterans, you already know. 

But for all of you. Especially those of you that cannot pick between one beach party and another boat party, I've got a brief list of essential parties that must not be missed. There's a little bit of everything for everyone but most of all the creme de la creme is here and if you have any suggestions, feel free to tweet at me using the link at the bottom of the page.  


Doorly and Friends - Tuesday - 3/21/2017 - 1 Hotel Rooftop - Free w/ RSVP

If you plan on getting into Miami on the inaugural day of festivities, then I highly recommend kicking the week off at the swanky 1 Hotel Rooftop with Doorly and his misfit DJ friends including one very special surprise guest. Simply RSVP and cross your fingers for confirmation.
