Daytime parties are one of the best things about the Winter Music Conference. It's been cold all winter, and March in Miami is that perfect time when you can work on your tan while your friends are still wearing long-sleeves back home. The girls are in bikinis, the palm trees are swayin', and the hardest decision you'll have is choosing where to spend your day. If it's house music and outdoor revelry that you're looking for, March 23rd's Afternoon Delight is a great choice.
Going on its 7th year at the conference, A.D. has successfully remained one of the most exuberant and well attended daytime events at the WMC, bringing just the right mix of excellent music, lovely ladies, and ice cold popsicles. Adam Auburn of LA's Auburn Entertainment along with DAE Recordings and a host of other sponsors and contributors have successfully branded Afternoon Delight as a rocking ass party, and after being named as one of the best 5 daytime events in Miami by Mixmag, it's even expanded to LA where it is now a regular summer fixture.
One of the things that elevates Afternoon Delight from the rest of the daytime WMC events is the careful planning that's put into the lineup. Not just the top-tier talent that plays every year, but the thoughtful programming of set times which results in an overall experience that is cohesive and never boring. You can bet that as the sun is going down, the music will align with just how your feeling at that moment, and this makes for one of the best vibes we've experienced at the conference.
The lineup this year sticks with the recipe seen previously of proven crowd-moving performers and includes the likes of Todd Terry, Ron Carroll, Jamie Lewis, Andy Caldwell, Spinna, Jask, Groove Assassin, Adam Auburn, Aaron Dae & Dirty, and David Sabat. Recently moving to Oceans 10 @ 960 Ocean Drive, you can find tickets and guestlist requests at http://afternoondelight2012.eventbrite.com/

There are literally hundreds of great events by talented musicians, dj's, and promoters being thrown throughout the week. Check out the official list HERE.
Two events that we will DEFINETLY be at are being thrown by our friends over at Large Music, and by our very own Adam Auburn respectively. Afternoon Delight was one of the most memorable parties of the entire conference last year, and is not to be missed. Large Music has been throwing one of the best parties in southbeach for several years now, and has partnered with Outloud in 2009 to continue the tradition.
