OMG! That is all I have to say about the line-up this week. Don’t even think about sleeping and stock up on those 5 Hour Energy bottles. Make sure to have your sunglasses handy – this week is going to be BANANAS! Kick it off by embracing your inner Mexican with Cinco de Mayo celebrations all around town, then mentally prepare yourself for one of the best music weekends in Miami (aside from WMC, MMC, and Ultra). There are some huge names in town and the best part about it is they are all spinning on different nights, so no need to pick and choose. Rest up, because once Thursday comes, there’s no turning back. Let’s get the festivities going!
THURSDAY, MAY 5
MYBACK at ARKADIA
4441 Collins Ave., Miami Beach
Start the night by having a cold cerveza for Cinco de Mayo as you embrace your inner Mexican, then once the fiestas have come to an end, it’s time to get serious – serious partying that is. Change the outfit, head over to Arkadia Lounge, and get Subliminal with special guests John Dahlbäck and Albin Myers as they present MYBACK. Get ready to shake it, pump it, and move it all night long to some funky, hard electro/house beats.
Doors open at 11 p.m. and dress to impress (uber-chic). Pre-sale tickets available at WantTickets.com
FRIDAY, MAY 6
Steve Angello at LIV
4441 Collins Ave., Miami Beach
Keep the momentum going (I told you to stock up on energy drinks), and head back to the Fontainebleau on Friday, but this time at LIV nightclub for Steve Angello. If you love house music like I do, then you already know this is going to be INSANE. No matter how many times I see him live, I just can’t get enough. The best party on South Beach will definitely be at LIV. Be warned: pre-sale tickets are already sold out and tickets available at the door will be costly.
Doors open at 11 p.m. and dress code is strictly enforced. (Work it like it’s a runway.) For table reservations call 306-674-4680.
SATURDAY, MAY 7
Yoshitoshi ft. SHARAM at Mansion
1235 Washington Ave., Miami Beach
As if you even wanted to sleep – PFFFT! Who needs sleep! Saturday it’s time for a little playtime. While Others Play House, We Play Mansion presents Yoshitoshi ft. SHARAM alongside resident Laurent Simeca and a special guest that has yet to be announced. Dance to hits like “Love, Love, Love”, “Hooked”, and the remix to “Yeah, Yeah”.

Gareth Emery at Space
34 NE 11th St., Miami
After you’ve finished playing at Mansion, make your way over the bridge to the one and only Club Space for an after hours session with special guests Gareth Emery, and D-Formation alongside Louis Puig. The techno loft and patio will be on fire as you rock your body to sounds by DJ Mag’s No. 7 ranked DJ in the world, Gareth Emery, as he drops hits such as “Sanctuary” ft. Lucy Saunders, “Metropolis (On A Good Day)”, and more. Put on your shades and watch the sun come up as you let go on the dance floor.

SUNDAY, MAY 8
John Digweed at SET
320 Lincoln Rd., Miami Beach
It’s Sunday-funday and the weekend is coming to an end, but don’t close your eyes just yet. Get some Movement in your life at SET nightclub with special guest John Digweed alongside resident Louis Dee. He’ll rock the decks throwing down a set of progressive house and electronica beats with tracks like “Satellite / Meteor”, “Transitions” and music from his upcoming compilation album, Bedrock. Say goodnight to the weekend and hello to a new week ahead.
