No Sugar Added Beach Festival 2013
March 22-23, 2013 | Nikki Beach - Miami
After weeks of hype, rumors, and multiple teases, the No Sugar Added Beach Festival officially announces their six major stages to span across the world famous Nikki Beach on March 22nd & 23rd, 2013. Now on its third consecutive year as a Miami Music Week best seller, the 2-day festival has revealed Friday March 22nd (Day 1) to showcase the best of underground and house, while Saturday March 23rd (Day 2) will star the hottest artists in mainstream electronic, progressive, and electro.
Day 1 sees Music On taking over main stage on the beach for Part 1 during the day, and a second stage at night for Part 2 – all curated by the global ambassador of techno himself, Marco Carola, who will be joined by his arsenal of internationally acclaimed underground friends and very special guests. To complement Day 1’s powerhouse lineup comes the one and only label that carried house music’s legacy into the 21st century – Defected In The House. With global presence in over 40 countries and a yearly residency at Pacha Ibiza, DITH promises to deliver nothing but an innovative underground-sexy lineup after 3 years away from Miami.
Stepping into Day 2 we see the world’s biggest dance brand, Ministry of Sound hosting the beach main stage with a fresh lineup of international stars and breakthrough artists alike. As day turns into night, Tiesto’s own record label Musical Freedom will host an all-star lineup of artists and the new generation of progressive/electro. Finally, Day 2’s third stage of the NSA Beach Festival proudly welcomes back the Dancing Astronaut stage, hailed as “the voice of the EDM generation” by Billboard Magazine.
With advance tickets selling out in record time, NSA promises to be the beach festival music fans can dream of during Miami Music Week 2013. With six major stages, five global brands, and tons of dominant artists, NSA 2013 makes for the most creative, prominent, and diverse representation of electronic music.
Address: One Ocean Drive, Miami, US, 33139
Located at 1 Ocean Drive, this large sun baskers paradise has become entwined into the beachlife and clubbing fabric of Miami and is the beach club that inspired a thousand others around the globe, including a dozen bearing the same name in places like Koh Samui and St.Tropez. All year round it hosts electic (Friday), soul and house (Saturday) and r’n’b and hiphop (Sunday) but it is better known as the arguably the most sought after event space for WMC and was formerly the home of BBC Radio 1’s live broadcasts from there. For 2009’s event you can see Nic Fanciulli, Tiefschwarz, Johnny D, Robbie Rivera, James Zabiela, Axwell and a Body and Soul special with Joe Claussel, Danny Krivit and François K.
Tip: Despite the location, the club itself enforces a strict dress code meaning the beachwear is no-go. WMC events are usually held outdoor anyway, so anything goes.
