It’s not a trip to WMC without certain parties. What would a week in Miami be without Toolroom, HARD Events, Mixmash?
Another one of those expected names is Anjunabeats, home to Above & Beyond. Year after year, their events are incredibly popular, and leave the London label with a major task for the next outing: how can next year be even better?
Answer: Bigger events.
While Above & Beyond won’t be playing Ultra this year to the displeasure of many, their sole performance will be their biggest one yet outside of Bayfront Park. Held at Mana Wynwood in Miami’s art district, We Are All We Need: Miami will feature some of Anjuna’s brightest stars and some special guests too. Seven Lions, Fehrplay, 16 Bit Lolitas, Lane 8, Ilan Bluestone, and Super8 & Tab will be kicking things off on Thursday, March 26. With the overwhelming success of their World Tour, this is all set to be a sold out affair.
Last year’s inaugural Anjunadeep Party used the beautiful Caffeina Art Gallery as its home, and will return there on Saturday, March 28. Not even heavy rain stopped last year’s shindig, which brought on Dusky as its surprise headliner. Hopefully this time, James Grant and Jody Wisternoff, who mix Anjunadeep’s yearly double CD, can fend off the bad weather. Lane 8, Cubicolor, Dom Donnelly, and special guest Jonas Rathsman will join them for a hazy Saturday afternoon downtown (complete with a BBQ!).
Rounding out the trio of events is the Anjunabeats Pool Party, a true WMC tradition. Held once more at The Raleigh Hotel, this is the quintessential party for progressive house and trance fans. Grammy nominated producer Audien and trance legends Gabriel & Dresden lead the charge alongside newcomers Judah and Jason Ross, Jerome Isma-ae, Pierce Fulton, Tom Staar, and a special b2b from Ilan Bluestone & Maor Levi. Like last year, the Anjunabeats Pool Party will cap off an exciting weekend of events for all fans of these two labels.
While these are the three Anjuna parties at WMC, their artists will be making appearances at other parties as well. Dusky will be hosting their own show on Wednesday, March 25 at Treehouse, and Jody Wisternoff will be playing on Thursday and Friday at Dream Nightclub and the Mikumau Boat Party respectively. Tickets to all of these events are currently on sale, but don’t wait!
