Dance music vets know it: Miami Music Week pool parties are where you’ll find some of the best DJ sets outside of Ultra Music Festival. It makes sense. DJs visiting from Berlin, New York and other chilly climates want to spend as much time as possible thawing out alongside the best pools in Miami. And a good pool party can be just what the doctor ordered after a 12-hour stint at a South Beach club. Plus, you get to see some of the best Miami hotels without having to book a pricey suite. That’s a win-win-win in our book.

Best Miami Music Week pool parties
When electronic music legend Pete Tong throws a party, it’s wise to attend—especially if that party is All Gone Pete Tong, the annual poolside Miami Music Week bash that always packs a punch. This year, Damian Lazarus, Black Coffee, Virgil Abloh, the Black Madonna, Honey Dijon and Tiga are only some of the names on the lineup. You should have bought your ticket two sentences ago.
As one of the most prominent voices in dance music, DJ Mag should know how to put together a hell of a lineup. And, as luck would have it, they sure do! DJ Mag’s Pool Sessions brings the Black Madonna, Ellen Allien, Fedde Le Grand and more to the gin-clear Surfcomber pool for Miami Music Week.
The Nautilus South Beach becomes Spinnin’ Hotel (a Spinnin’ Records and Diskolab takeover) throughout Miami Music Week. It starts with Spinnin’ Sessions on March 21, followed by Robin Schulz and friends on Thursday. Friday sees the Heartfeldt Pool Party and Sander Van Doorn takes over on Saturday. Everything comes to an end with the Spinnin’ Deep party on Sunday, March 25.
