Paris Hil­ton and the Gi­ant Wheel of Death

Sun Sentinel Palm Beach Edition - Showtime - Palm Beach - - THE GO GUIDE - Ben Cran­dell

Cel­e­brat­ing its 20th an­niver­sary in Mi­ami this week­end, Ul­tra Mu­sic Fes­ti­val has been around long enough to be host­ing the chil­dren of fans who at­tended the first event. EDM, clearly a fad with stay­ing power.

As is the case most ev­ery year, Ul­tra sold out be­fore the full lineup was even an­nounced. And this year, be­fit­ting the an­niver­sary, Bayfront Park will be filled with an espe­cially broad range of acts, in­clud­ing le­gends of UMF’s early years (Paul Oak­en­fold, Danny Te­naglia, Carl Cox, Pete Tong, Sasha & Dig­weed), con­tem­po­rary lords of pop ra­dio (David Guetta, Marsh­mello, Afro­jack, DJ Snake, Kaskade and the Chainsmok­ers), and in­ter­est­ing out­liers (Ju­lian Mar­ley and the Wail­ers, and lo­cals Afro­beta).

Of course, all this ac­tion pro­duces a re­ac­tion, and there is no short­age events of around town that are fly­ing, or tram­pling, the Mi­ami Mu­sic Week flag. Many show vary­ing de­grees of prom­ise.

The ac­claimed South African DJ-pro­ducer Black Cof­fee is at Story tonight. Tick­ets start at $40. The Chainsmok­ers are due to play a set there on Sun­day, if you’re into that kind of thing. Visit Sto­ryMi­ami.com.

Mi­ami-raised DJ Steve Aoki’s DimMak­la­bel re­turns to the scene of last year’s MMWin­san­ity with a party tonight at the RC Cola Plant in Wyn­wood. The strong lineup in­cludes Aoki, Car­nage, Dada Life and Cheat Codes, among oth­ers. Tick­ets start at $35. Visit DimMak.com.

Faena Fo­rum tonight will of­fer a Mi­ami Mu­sic Week “anti-con­cert” called Noche de Bru­jas, an evening de­voted to the es­o­teric and the spir­i­tual, with per­for­mance art and mu­sic from Ju­liana Huxtable, Suzi Ana­logue, Kalup Linzy, Virgo, Jen DeNike, Poor­gr­rrl, Voila Snow, IFE-ILE, Sand­flower, Ge­or­gia Wall, Car­los Be­tan­court, TM Sis­ters and oth­ers.
