As we all know by now, the Miami Heat burned up the court this season, taking home the acclaimed NBA World Championship title. And while it’s the players who do the hard work, there’s another key member of the team whose job it is to make sure everyone—fans included—are always fired up and ready for action.

DJ Irie, official Miami Heat DJ, is at every game playing some seriously energizing tunes. So it’s not entirely surprising that he kept the good times spinning at his annual late summer bash, the Irie Charity Weekend to benefit the Irie Foundation, which empowers South Florida’s at-risk youth through mentorship programs, cultural experiences and scholarship opportunities.

The festivities took place at the ever-popular SLS Hotel on South Beach and brought out some serious wattage, from Heat stars to sports legends to boy band icons. All mixed and mingled under swaying palm trees at an exclusive opening reception hosted by Hublot that kicked off three nights of chic soirees, posh parties on the beach, auctions and a golf tournament. The culmination? A huge bash at Liv nightclub at the Fontainebleau, with a live performance by SkyBlu from LMFAO and a surprise one by Flo Rida.
