Despite multiple reports to the contrary, trusted sources have reported that mogul Robert Sillerman’s SFX Entertainment’s buying spree of top electronic dance music entities has hit a major roadblock as the largest South Beach nightlife operator, The Opium Group – which owns hotspots Mansion, SET, Mokai and Cameo – has walked away from a recent deal.
This comes to light on the same week that The Opium Group has announced a grand-reopening of South Beach staple, SET, which has undergone a complete renovation and will feature shows by Arty, Bob Sinclar and Sasha during Miami Music Week.
The Opium Group, the conglomerate representing Miami clubs Mansion, Cameo, Set, and Mokai, has just announced their first phase of Miami Music Week parties. So far Opium has only shared details about these eight shows at four clubs for the week of March 19 through March 24th, but there are sure to be many more events dribbling in the lead up to Ultra, WMC, and MMW. There’s a little something for everyone: Afrojack and his Jacked party, John Digweed and Bedrock, Umek and his 1605 crew, James Zabiela and Born Electric homies, John Dahlback and other Mutants, and Arty, Morgan Page, and Robbie Rivera to boot. Bring it on Miami.
Robert Sillerman, entertainment mogul and head of SFX Entertainment, has declared an arms race on EDM enterprises with a billion dollar budget. After purchasing Donnie Disco Presents and the company formerly known as DayGlow, Sillerman has remained relatively quiet — until now. The billionaire has now purchased a large stake in Miami’s The Opium Group, which manages Mansion, SET, Cameo and Mokai Lounge. After acquiring power of a large portion of Miami’s nightlife scene, the rumors continued to surface, and it appears as if Sillerman has just begun an EDM shopping spree.
