WEDNESDAY, MARCH 9
Standard Sounds Presents Uffie
40 Island Ave., Miami Beach
Start the festivities early at the Standard Hotel as you check out a special performance by Electro, Dance Pop artist Uffie.

Dirty Dutch Take Over

After checking out Uffie at the Standard, keep the party going over at LIV nightclub for a Dirty Dutch takeover by DJ Chuckie. “Let the Bass Kick” and dance to the best in electro, house, and dance music hits by one of the biggest names in the industry. When Chuckie’s on the decks there’s no one sitting down. The music is high-energy, bass pounding and the crowd goes absolutely wild!

THURSDAY, MARCH 10
Snoopadelic at LIV
4441 Collins Ave., Miami Beach
I try to mix it up on the Party Patrol, but Thursday night I recommend double-dipping and returning to LIV for a very special event featuring the one and only Snoop Dogg as Snoopadellic. He’s taking a break from the mic and taking over the decks alongside one of Miami’s finest - DJ Ross One. This is one party you don’t want to miss.

One more thing. If serious House music is what you want, head downstairs to Arkadia for a special edition of Subliminal Sessions with Erick Morillo, Harry “Choo Choo” Romero, Jose Nunez, and Antranig. This line-up is going to be SICK!
