Summer is slowly coming to an end, but that doesn’t mean the music has to stop. In Miami there’s always a reason to get out of the house and get on the dance floor. South Florida has a great line-up that will have you partying it up at the hottest clubs and on the sand: Adult Film Star turned DJ Sasha Grey at Mokai, a beach party with Steve Angello, a return of the originals Edgar V and George Acosta at Space, and much more.
FRIDAY, AUG. 19
Hardwell at SET

This has been an amazing year for the young DJ (he’s only 21), with the release of club banging hit after hit, a collab with two of the most recognized DJs- Tiesto and Chuckie, and the launch of his own label. He’s taking over one nightclub at a time bringing his talents to music lovers around the world. Be there Friday night and witness him throw down hits such as “Encode”, “The World”, “Passion,” “Molotov” and many more.

George Acosta, Edgar V, & LP at SPACE
34th NE 11th St., Miami
For those of you who don’t want to make the drive up north, I suggest you head over to Space for the return of the originals George Acosta and Edgar V as they take over the infamous Space Terrace. These two DJs were the first electronic music DJs I ever saw LIVE and from then on I was sold! From trance to house they have it all with hits like “Nite Time” by George Acosta and “Easy” by Edgar V. Only 3 weekends before Space closes for a month, so don’t miss out on the fun of a Summer at Space!
Doors open at 11pm. Tickets available at WantTickets.com
