Miami thrice

No city on earth is as exciting as Miami this month. From the hedonistic hordes heading here for spring break, to the EDM enthusiasts in town for the biggest music festival of its kind, Miami has it all

 

Spring break

Miami has long proved a magnet for Spring breakers keen to soak up the blazing sun by day and the equally hot nightlife after dark. South Beach is the epicentre of the action, where you’ll dive into a sea of bead-sporting milliennials slaloming along neon-lit sidewalks as they venue hop until the sun comes up.

Ultra Music Festival

Every EDM DJ, producer and label of note will be in Miami for the annual Winter Music Conference, a decades aged gathering of the industry’s finest, which has since spawned Miami Music Week and the Ultra Music Festival, all in March. Expect to see DJs play almost everywhere in the city, including at restaurants and galleries.

Shop Miami Month

While the party crowd sleep off their evenings of excess, the shopoholics take advantage by hitting Miami’s malls – both indoors and al fresco – to get their fill of month-long discounts. For the high-end, head to the luxury boutiques (Gucci, Chanel) of Bal Harbour Shops, which are dotted with tranquil carp ponds.
