Every year, it seems like the world waits for March to arrive in Miami. With a month-long rush of hot-ticket events, soon-to-be-sold-out shows, invitation-only soirées, and glamorous galas, Miami is the place to kick off an exciting spring season.
To start, Winter Music Conference is back for its 29th year, with 10 days full of panels, exhibits, parties, and famous-DJ sets. From March 21 to 30, our city will play host to the best in the global industry of electronic music, as hundreds of thousands swarm the stage. Coinciding with the last few bass-bumping days of WMC is Ultra Music Festival, back for another weekend of high-octane shows, including mega-DJ headliners Afrojack, Avicii, David Guetta, Nicky Romero, and Tiësto, from March 28 to 30. Sport’s greatest legends and stars-in-the-making will also be in town for two high-wattage events, the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship, March 5 to 9, and the Sony Open Tennis, March 27 to 30.
Between all the events and parties, be sure to take a moment to check out our latest cover star, Eva Longoria, in her stunning spread in this issue. For the lovely Longoria, this marks her third Ocean Drive cover, and we’re thrilled she could join us for yet another memorable shoot.
Celebrating spring fashion, we are very excited to welcome global icons Donna Karan and Philip Lim to Miami to launch their new in-store boutiques at Saks Fifth Avenue Bal Harbour. Read more on oceandrive.com and follow us on Instagram and Twitter, for all the fashionable event details.
So enjoy everything Miami has to offer this month, from celebrity tee-offs to live shows. Not to mention the weather will be perfect.
Hope to see you around town…
