There are two big parties coming to the South Florida/Miami area before the end of winter. Both of them are hot winter parties. One is the electronic music conference and the other is the Winter Music Party Festival which is more of a circuit event. Both events feature the hottest DJs and will offer you a preview of what the club sounds of 2007 shall be.
The Winter Music Conference will be held this year from February 28th – March 5th, so if your gay weekends are taken up with Buffy reruns and online bingo, consider this a healthy and comparably safe alternative. Entertainers include DJ Kimberly S, DJ Kate Monroe, DJ Roland Belmares, DJ Joe Gauthreaux, DJ Manny Lehman and many others. Other entertainers include comedians such as Michele Balan, ANT, and Leslie Jordan. It looks to be an outside event on the beach maybe similar to the Typhoon Lagoon party on Gay Days week in Orlando.
You can party and feel good about giving back to the community at the same time. This beach dance party and cultural festival benefits the Miami-Dade lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force.
The early bird special for the Winter Party ends on January 20th but you can purchase tickets at WinterParty.com up until a few days to the event. You may not want to miss the closing party which is at Club Twilo with DJ Abel. I am not a big fan of the non-vocal beats of DJ Abel but I have heard great things of Club Twilo in Miami. There are also other nights at Club Twilo as part of this festival.
There will also be other great events besides partying on the beautiful Florida beaches and clubs. There are scheduled tennis tournaments, golf classic, swimming meets, and pool parties. It sounds like we need to hit the gym before this party takes off.
