Our venue is a beautiful downtown open air space overlooking the cityscape. Ten hours of bliss on a beautiful Sunday. As is customary - you can expect all details attended to for the 10 hour marathon. Ample seating areas, food, vendors, and a few surprises hidden in the details.
Behrouz - Do Not Sit on the Furniture (Miami) - All Day I Dream
San Francisco-based producer and long time dance music veteran, Behrouz Nazari is difficult to label as he reflects the music he creates and spins. “My sound is impossible to categorize, but if I were to give it my best shot, I would describe it as a myriad of different subgenres of music I have experimented with during my past 20 years of DJ’ing. It’s mainly composed of sexy music incorporating the finer elements of my deep house roots, all the way to techno,” Behrouz confesses. This being said, Behrouz has quickly become a highly respected DJ, recognized worldwide for his groundbreaking headlining sets at venues such as Pacha in Ibiza and NY, Space in Ibiza, Warung in Brazil and Stereo in Montreal. His sets on the legendary Robot Heart bus, and at Burning Man have become a staple, and have earned him to be one of the most sought after, and loved artists.
