Miami Week 2011
If somebody were to drop an atomic bomb on Miami Florida during Miami Week 2011, they would effectively wipe out electronic dance music for the next 15 years. Every DJ who is any DJ is going to be preforming somewhere in Miami between Tuesday the 22th and Sunday the 27th. The upper echelon of DJ Mag’s Top 100, BeatPort executives, Mixmag publishers, ambitious global party hounds, and the top 5% of the best looking women from across the world. Without a doubt, this is the biggest culminating event for electronic dance music on Earth, so naturally, Dancing Astronaut will be at the forefront of the madness.
We’ll be on board, will you?
Eight Astronauts will be deployed to South Beach, Miami. Covering events, soaking up Vitamin D, raging, and most importantly, uploading. Wanna party like an Astronaut? Angela, Enko, Kevin, Senthil, Nima, Skywalker, Zeyad, and myself are looking to party with YOU. The fans. Contact us at email@example.com if you want to meet up! SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!!!

Why should you go?
On the second day, God said let there be bass. And there was bass. If you’ve already got tickets to this amazing festival, power to you! Saturday is going to be a huge day. The most challenging part of this day will be trying to decide between five huge stages with headlines on at all times; where to go, and who to see first. Last year, I set alarms on my phone every time somebody I wanted to see came on. That way, if I wasn’t 150% satisfied (Ultra is always 100% satisfying) with the current set, I could always jet over to another stage! Also, alarms on your phone will keep you on track and focused if you are otherwise distracted ;-). You want to make the most out of your Ultra experience. Plan it out! Stay tuned for set times…

Why Should You Go?
This is one of the most talked about events for Miami Week 2011 and everybody wants in. Unfortunately, the event is SOLD OUT. However, you still have a chance to win tickets! Swedish House Mafia have put together a digital scavenger hunt for the fans to win tickets to the event. Images of a “key” have been scattered across various music/lifestyle/culture websites. Finding and clicking all 9 keys will unlock a special piece of a “never-before-seen hint of What’s Behind The Curtain” and a 10% discount code for SHM merchandise. One random winner will get comped a pair of VIP tickets, and 10 randomly selected fans will Until One: The Book Edition. This one-night-stand event will be held on a custom built venue in the sand! SHM have brought in their friends to DJ, those who are listed above only represent SOME of the talent to appear at Masquerade Motel. Only by attending the event will you find out who else will be there.
Oh, and because Dancing Astronaut loves you so much, i’m giving you the first Swedish House Mafia, Masquerade Motel, scavenger hunt key location here! Good luck finding the rest!

2nd Featured Night Event: Fool’s Gold +18 @ Grand Central
Time: 10:00 PM – 4:00 AM
A-Trak, Kenny Dope, Riva Starr, Just Blaze, Treasure Fingers, Congorock, LA Riots, Jokers Of The Scene, Nacho Lovers, Kingdom, Nick Catchdubs, Sammy Bananas, + Special Surprise Guests
Why Should You Go?
Last year we met Laidback Luke at the Hard Pool party, he told us he was the surprise guest at the Fool’s Gold party the following night. If this event is even half as good last year, the surprise guest will be worth the trip downtown! This is the perfect event for you kiddies (18-20 y/o) who are making the trip down for Ultra, but aren’t quite old enough to party with the big dogs (21+). Just email your name to Foolsrsvp@gmail.com and you’re good to go! Doesn’t cost anything more than a cab ride to Grand Central (Same local as Miami’s other big 18+ event HARD).
Free with RSVP: firstname.lastname@example.org
(Be sure to include your name in the email!)
