Hello Texas! This is your White Party friends here in sunny Miami. Although we differ, you know we love you. You guys eat big steaks… we got amazing Cuban sandwiches. You have amazing Texan line dances… and well, our hips can knock over a pickup truck once we hear some salsa music. We can’t drive…well, neither can you. However, during White Party Week, great music, beautiful people, and sunshine unites us.
It all begins with White Journey, the signature kick-off dance event at Cameo nightclub presented by Eliad Cohen, Luis Morera, Jerry Torres, and Jared Needle on Thursday, November 27.
On Friday, November 28, witness a stellar night in sight and sound at White Dreams at Club Space with DJs Ivan Gomez and Alain Jackinsky.
The White Splash Pool Party kicks-off Saturday, November 29 at the National Hotel with DJ Grind. Cirque Blanc, the Women’s White Party, presented by Pandora Events, takes place Saturday, November 29 at Nikki Beach Club with DJ Affect. The night will be hosted by Whitney Mixter from VH1 and The Real L Word.
The 30th anniversary of White Party, A Diamond Jubilee, will take place Saturday, November 29, at the Perez Art Museum of Miami. The event is a rebirth of it in true VIP fashion as attendees are invited to dress to impress in their finest formal wear. The evening will also feature the premier performance of DJ David Knapp and the White Party Symphony, as conducted by Sam Hyken.
“I am taking music and adding a whole new layer with strings, bass, horns, piano and percussion” said Hyken. “It is a whole new level of sophistication and excitement. Together, with DJ David Knapp, we are going to take guests through 30 years of music – songs that were popular from White Party’s past. It will be epic.”
“This will be my sixteenth year serving as the official hostess,” Elaine Lancaster, the official White Party hostess, said. “I am extremely excited about this year’s event being held at the Perez Art Museum of Miami because it is a beautiful space with a strong sense of style and modern elegance. In addition, I will be doing a production performance that will be talked about for years to come. I just hope in a good way! It will be fun and exciting that’s all I’m saying.”
“I love my city and my goal is to incorporate a larger spectrum of guests from all around Miami and the world,” Jonathan Welsh, care resource’s marketing and development manager, said. “I think that attendees will enjoy, not only the musical journey they will embark upon this year, but the careful thought and planning that is going into every detail. The whole week is going to be magical. It will be fierce. It is our Diamond Jubilee!”
After the White Party, there is White Starz at Score nightclub with DJs Isaac Escalante and Paulo will take guests into the wee hours.
On Sunday, November 30, Muscle Beach, the sexiest dance party on the sand, will feature an opening set by DJ Tristan Jaxx followed by DJ Micky Friedmann, direct from Berlin. Noche Blanca, a dance party extravaganza, produced in association with URGE Miami, at Mansion nightclub features the legendary DJ Abel spinning until dawn.
The parties continue on Monday, December 1, with Swan Song at TWIST and White Horizons, the legendary morning party at Mekka with DJ Susan Morabito.
