MP3 PREP: BLNK CNVS is Throwing Miami Music Week’s Wildest Pool Parties — What You Need to Know

As the festival season charges full steam ahead, the preparation for each event becomes a task in itself. Welcome to MP3 PREP, your ultimate guide to navigating the pulsating world of music festivals. Here’s what you need to know about BLNK CNVS’s Miami Music Week 2024 pool parties.

Miami Music Week is approaching FAST, and the announcements keep coming, pointing toward Miami Music Week’s most eventful year yet.

But be warned: The Miami sun is HOT, and you’ll want to cool down as the parties rage on throughout the week. However this doesn’t mean you have to stay inside and miss the music. Thanks to BLNK CNVS, you can see all of your favorite artists poolside at some of Miami’s premiere pool destinations: Surfcomber Hotel, Nautilus Sonesta, and Strawberry Moon.

But each pool offers a different vibe, and hosts different artists. Here’s what you can expect.

Surfcomber is known as the premier pool for Miami Beach pool parties, perfectly located to provide the most amount to sunlight each day for any pool located on Miami Beach.

The pool also comes with some swaying palm trees and private cabanas, but most of your time there during Miami Music Week will (hopefully) be spent dancing and enjoying some of the week’s highest-profile events. 

Toping that start-studded list is ILLENIUM’s debut Miami Music Week pool party (ILLENIUM’s only performance of the week), but there’s so much more.

  • Wednesday, March 20: Louis the Child — Playground Set (purchase tickets here).
  • Thursday, March 21: Mau P’s Backyard Pool Party (purchase tickets here).
  • Friday, March 22: Nicole Moudaber’s In The Mood Pool Party (purchase tickets here).

Featuring a 1,900-square-foot salt water pool located a few short steps from the ocean, Nautilus Sonesta is as picturesque as it gets.

This beachside pool trades Surfcomber colorful decor for a more stripped back approach, embracing music as the forefront of their Miami Music Week pool parties. Maybe that’s why record labels have chosen Nautilus as their preferred destination for pool-party takeovers.

The Nautilus Sonesta MMW pool parties include:

  • Wednesday, March 20: Sidepiece Kiss & Tell Pool Party (purchase tickets here).
  • Thursday, March 21: Oliver Heldens Heldeep Pool Party (SOLD OUT).
  • Friday, March 22: Insomniac Records Pool Party (purchase tickets here).
  • Saturday, March 23: Mixmash’s 20th Anniversary Pool Party (purchase tickets here).
  • Sunday, March 24: Anjunabeats Open Air Miami (purchase tickets here).

Strawberry Moon

Created by Pharrell Williams and David Grutman, Strawberry Moon represents the spirit of Miami nightlife and magnetic energy.

So much so, that the “Strawberry Moon” name was actually inspired by the last full lunar evening of Spring, which famously paints the Miami beach with a roseate hue. But it’s not just luxury in name — the space features a 24,000 square foot pool deck and lounge, and a high-energy poolside Mediterranean restaurant.

Strawberry Moon has only announced one official Miami Music Week Pool Party, but it’s definitely worth experiencing:

  • Sunday, March 24: MK & Friends Pool Party (purchase tickets here).

With so many outstanding events to choose from, it’s hard to pick which pool to dance your days away at this year’s Miami Music Week. But, wherever you find yourself, music awaits!
