Defected and Repopulate Mars announced for EPIC Pool Parties at WMC

After the recent announcement that Electric Ibiza and Jonathan Cowan Productions LLC would be partnering with the Kimpton EPIC Hotel in Miami to deliver six of the Winter Music Conference’s biggest pool parties this year, the rumours haven’t stopped. Announced today, the first two of six industry-leading brands to take control of the rooftop pool will be Defected (03/28) and Repopulate Mars (03/29).

On Thursday March 28th, Defected, one of Ibiza’s biggest success stories of recent years, will be bringing their inimitable house heat to Florida for the first time since 2013. As part of Defected’s 20th anniversary year, guests can expect an extra special event with a dynamic and exciting line-up of Defected residents from the world’s longest running independent house music label. Following on from the success of Defected’s stateside tour at the end of 2018, their events represent everything there is to love about house music, bringing people together from all over the world with the finest in current house anthems. Defected’s values of inclusivity, togetherness and escapism on the dancefloor set the tone for the global scene and combined with the innovative talent of the Defected DJs, this is sure to be one of the week’s unmissable events.

And on Friday March 29th, Lee Foss’ Repopulate Mars will rip open the fabric of space and time to return to Miami Music Week to host their intergalactic pool party on Mars at the Kimpton EPIC Hotel. Expect a day of outer space hedonism that will have punk funk kids shedding clothes, aliens shedding skin and cyborgs getting down to an electrifying line-up of the best names in house and techno. With the full line up still to come, Repopulate Mars are proud to open this Stargate between Mars and Miami for their third invasion, once again inviting the hottest house acts on the scene for the ultimate pool party.

Having already announced the first EPIC Pool Party on Tuesday March 26th to be the official Winter Music Conference / Miami Music Week opening party, and with three more brands still yet to be announced along with full line-ups for all six parties, the EPIC Pool Parties are already shaping out to be, well, epic. Promising a broad range of events across the entire electronic music spectrum with early bird passes to all six parties already on sale for just $100, it’s clear that the partnership between Electric Ibiza, Jonathan Cowan and the Kimpton EPIC Hotel is one which will deliver a series of unforgettable centrepiece events to a revamped Miami Winter Music Conference.
