Miami Music Week has officially concluded and in its wake, we look back at some of the top highlights of the action-packed week. As expected, MMW 2018 did not disappoint, bringing out plenty of surprises and guest appearances to make it one very memorable year. Here is a look at some of the greatest moments of the week:

SWEDISH HOUSE MAFIA AT ULTRA

Given that it was the mega music festival’s 20-year Anniversary, we knew that something big was bound to happen to close out the three-day lineup. To many longtime fans’ excitement, the legendary Swedish House Mafia reunited on the main stage of Ultra Music Festival on Sunday evening to end the weekend on the highest note possible. Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso and Steve Angello came together as one bringing back Swedish House Mafia after a 30-minute break during Ultra’s final set. Their one-hour performance sent the crowd wild with some of their classic songs like “Miami 2 Ibiza,” “Don’t You Worry Child,” “Leave The World Behind” and “One,” amidst impressive firework displays.


 

WILL SMITH AT ULTRA 

 

As if Sunday’s grand finale was not enough to rave about, Ultra Music Festival also made sure the other days did not disappoint, with a particularly memorable moment happening when hit DJ Marshmello brought out Will Smith to the main stage toward the end of Saturday night, aptly to perform his all-time hit song, “Miami,” which sent festival-goers crazy singing along and dancing to the song.

Party host Shaq decided to face off in a dance-off with NFL Patriots star player Ron Gronkowski. Though the winner is unclear, it certainly caught many video cameras when Gronk climbed atop 7’1″ Shaq’s shoulders toward the end of the dancefloor battle to continue dancing the night away.

This year’s official Miami Music Week Hotel was at the forefront of all epic events of the week, with a particularly special lineup taking place on Wednesday, March 21st, as Swedish sensation Axwell drew the likes of Martin Garrix, Cedric Gervais, Benny Benassi and Gianluca Vacchi who partied behind stage as he took to the stage playing hits including “More Than You Know”, “Dreamer” and “I Love You.” On Thursday, March 22nd, LaidBack Luke surprised fans at Delano Beach Club with a number of unannounced performances by Afrojack, DJ Chuckie, Hardwell, Quintino, Sunnery James and Ryan Marciano for his annual MixMash party.

The Hilton heiress is a longtime veteran of the famed Miami Music Week after making her DJ debut years ago. This year was no exception as the mogul partied the night away at Wynwood’s Mana Warehouse with her fiancé, Chris Zylka until the night turned hectic as the eye-catching, $2M, 20-karat engagement ring flew off her finger as she was dancing in the nightclub. The impressive rock was custom designed by celebrity jeweler Michael Greene, and it’s reported that the couple has actually hired extra security on their past engagement vacation in Aspen to look after the precious diamond. After some hectic and tear-filled minutes went by, the security miraculously found the ring inside a champagne ice bucket on a nearby table in the VIP area.
