Like the sun needs the sky and the birds need the trees, Winter Music Conference needs the Juicy Beach party to make the month complete.
Entering its ninth year and still going strong, Juicy Beach is the brain child of producer Robbie Rivera and his wife/business partner, Monica. Every year, the couple curates incredible lineups for the 17-hour dance-marathon and 2013 is no exception! Juicy Beach will take place on Thursday, March 21st at the world-famous Nikki Beach with a star-studded lineup including, the event impresario himself, Robbie Rivera, alongside industry leaders such as Bob Sinclar, Manufactured Superstars, Cosmic Gate, Mord Fustang, Nari & Milani, Moguai and so many more. Tickets are available here.
When talking about the prolific DJ/producer Robbie Rivera, it is hard to ignore his undeniable ability to amaze crowds in multiple ways. Boasting an uncanny ability to dabble in multiple sound spectrums, from the more big room style of electro house to the more tribal sounds of the underground, Rivera is one of dance music's most experienced talents. Over the years, Robbie has accumulated a release resume that is beyond impressive. Since his career's beginning, Rivera has been featured on many industry leading imprints such as Virgin, Strictly Rhythm, Atlantic, Ministry Of Sound as well as his own successful label Juicy Music. Following the start of Juicy, Rivera expanded his brand into a mega marathon event called Juicy Beach. Year after year, Miam's Nikki Beach becomes swarmed for over 15 hours as Rivera's creation features some of his favorite talents from throughout the world. Amidst a time in which a DJ/producer must truly push the edge to remain relevant, Rivera has relentlessly succeeded in doing so for years. Luckily for our avid Juicy fans out there, Joonbug was able to sit down with Robbie prior to his set at New York City's megaclub Pacha. For those of you who think that old dogs can't learn new tricks, prepare to be surprised. There is still much to be seen and heard from this DJ legend. Find out more in our chat with Robbie below!
If you're excited for Miami Music Week it's about to get EVEN better. When dance music aficionados gather together to celebrate the best events and shows in sunny South Beach, things heat up before the party even starts. With that said, Robbie Rivera has announced the phase one lineup for his famed Juicy Beach party which is going down March 21st at Miami's world famous, Nikki Beach. Always one of the best events during WMC, not only is Juicy Beach a staple in the party scene but this year's event is going to be jam packed with steller talent.

Robbie’s opening acts consisted of many incredibly talented, yet wildly under-rated tech house and progressive house DJs. Manuel De La Mare took the stage at 4 p.m. with a tech-house set that drew a huge crowd from the first arriving ferries. Stefano Noferini played another 90-minute tech-house set that made audience members groove and jive away.
An interesting turn of tempo came with the sounds of progressive and electro house - provided by DJs Paige and EDX who were sandwiched between the other two tech DJs. Adding these bolder, more defined sounds into the mix allowed the crowd to rage hard under the sun for some electro and progressive tracks, and then rest and groove for the much simpler and slower tech house sets.
The Miami-based producer is known for his iconic, all-day concert “Juicy Beach” that takes place annually at Nikki Beach. This July, Rivera will take his notorious party to Governors Island with “Juicy New York,” bringing South Beach’s sunshine, wild vibe all the way to the big apple. Rivera will be joined on stage by openers EDX, Manuel De La Mare, Paige, Stefano Noferini and Sultan + Ned Shepard.
Joonbug had a chance to chat with Rivera about founding his own record label, releasing his new album "Dance or Die," and constantly evolving in this ever-changing industry.
Friday heralds the arrival of our baser impulses—the Mr. Hyde to our work-week Jekyll—and with it, the desire to rage frenetic! Thankfully, for those in the Philly area, the options are plentiful. With wicked tunes, blistering ragers, and devilish drink specials, the possibilities for revelry are seemingly endless. One need only take up the mantle of the “weekend warrior” and let the war against mundanity commence!
Here are six events guaranteed to make your weekend a memorable, mayhem-infused affair—let the battle begin!
