Here in Crossfade we may always hype up the new or up and coming, but plenty of people come to Winter Music Conference to listen to the old standbys, and we don't blame 'em. It's perhaps the only week in the United States you can catch them all back to back. And if anyone knows how to please that crowd the best it's Pacha.
The megaclub, originally from Ibiza, Spain, has several outposts including Buenos Aires, Sao Paulo, Munich, and more famously, New York. But every year around WMC, the NY outpost organizes a week-long party mayhem in Miami that doesn't stop until, er, well who knows. This year isn't any different.
This year's highlights include Danny Tenaglia's Wednesday night takeover of Parkwest, where we're pretty sure shirts will be forbidden on the dancefloor.
For those looking for a free party, Pacha will appease them with a Sirius XM Party at the Gansevoort South Hotel featuring Above & Beyond, Markus Schulz, and Kaskade.
Victor Calderone and Sander Kleinenberg are scheduled for a daytime party at the Surfcomber on Thursday, while the Mixmag party Friday night at Parkwest with Will.I.Am, Boys Noize and D.Ramirez ought to attract a mixed crowd.
But let's not ruin all the surprises. Full list of Pacha Miami 2010 events after the jump.
