Miami continues to astound as more and more lineups are released each and every day. Sitting comfortably in Los Angeles, I’m fairly confident that I will see each and every one of these acts at some point throughout the year. However, for those of you who might not feel as fortunate, Miami is a damn godsend. You can basically knock out your bucket list in 5 days if you plan it out right. And shucks, there are plenty of people who want to help you out. Just take a look at the good folks over at Wavo, and their SLS Miami South Beach Pool Party. For five days, March 25-29 (Sunday will be announced soon), they will be hosting some of the biggest names all together in one place.
