At the heart of multicultural goodness, Miami, Florida is known for its eccentric nightlife. No matter the hour, the party never stops; even more so during its infamous Miami Music Week, a time of year anticipated by EDM fans worldwide.
Red Bull never fails to throw the best WMC pool party in Miami during Miami Music Week. Every year, they rent out an entire hotel for the sake of a good time. In its third consecutive year, the Red Bull Guest House (also known as RBGH) chose to take over the Sagamore, Art Hotel in South Beach – and it’s safe to say that the “third time’s a charm”.
Upon arriving at the RBGH, we couldn’t believe our eyes. So much thought and creativity went into this year’s festivities. Red Bull provided their guests with fun games such as foosball, life-size Jenga and connect four. Collaborating with a number of brands including Nail Swag, Public School NYC, Blo Miami, Brooklyn’s Heartbreakers Barber Shop and Makeup Forever, Red Bull surely offered a unique experience for each individual celebrating at the Sagamore Hotel. Graciously providing ISHINE365 with our very own private bungalow and exclusive red and blue bikinis to giveaway to attendees throughout the four-day event, Red Bull (obviously) left us all wanting more. Our bungalow was filled with an assortment of candy-goodness, food from Gigi’s, exclusive ISHINE365 x RBGH bikinis and a table covered in gold, literally. Sipping on fresh coconuts from our friends over at Coconut Cartel, we anxiously awaited our daily appointments for the giveaway and eagerly welcomed anyone and everyone who wanted to shine bright in some of our best-selling Flash Tatts. Despite the freebies and yummy food provided throughout the weekend, we can all surely agree that we were there specifically for the amazing music – and boy, how there was some amazing music!
Although, there were over 20 sensational performances throughout the four-day WMC event, there were only a handful of artists who captured our hearts and made this year’s RBGH pool party one to remember. Some of our faves from the weekend include:
Chromeo- this Canadian duo rocked their jungle-themed stage with their electro-funk, feel-good music. Good vibes and drinks were flowing during the entire performance.
Duke Dumont- Duke Dumont successfully hypnotized party-goers with an amazing performance, integrating uplifting lyrics with a set of his infamous deep-electro beats. If you weren’t groovin’, you were losin’!
Lil Wayne- Rapping some of his greatest hits, Lil Wayne’s performance was the highlight of the entire weekend. There was no shame in our game during Weezy’s performance, anyone who was a true fan was getting low and rapping along. Not to mention, he literally shut down the house after he announced that he would be releasing a new album next month called “Free Weezy Album.”
Kygo- this young (and super hot) new-comer killed it on the last day of RBGH. Kygo’s fresh and tropical sound recharged our spirits and eased us into the final hours of the RBGH finale, leaving us in a state of paradise.
We want to personally thank Red Bull for their amazing hospitality and for inviting us to be a part of EDM history. We also want to thank all who partied alongside ISHINE365 and made the four-day event such an unforgettable experience. For those of you who were not able to attend this year’s RBGH, we highly recommend it – We had a blast!… And if you somehow find that hard to believe, here is some evidence of a hell-of-a-good-time.
Thanks for giving us wings Red Bull! Until next year…
