Every year the Winter Music Conference gets bigger and crazier. Big name EDM performers will be playing throughout Miami, from pool parties to nightclubs, but where is someone to go that wants a taste of the fun, but not outright ULTRA madness? Try some of the smaller events at boutique hotels and restaurants.

Seasalt and Pepper will be bringing guests a “taste of Ibiza” with waterfront lounge packages assuring waterfront seating and sounds by DJ Bruno an DJ Pierre Zonzon.

For the Avicii fans, the Avicii Hotel at SLS South Beach has announced a new partnership with Ushuaïa Ibiza for five days of pop up events from the 26-30. The “Avicci Hotel” will include Avicii key cards and door hangers, Avicii in-room amenities (shampoo, conditioner, soap, lotion), a pop-up retail kiosk with exclusive Avicii merchandise, massive Avicii mirrors and windows, and a custom Avicii red carpet greeting guests upon entrace. Guests staying at the hotel will receive their own Avicii swag bag to make it through Miami Music week, including Kanon vodka, t-shirts, snapbacks, flip-flops, beach towels, sunglasses and more. Avicii himself will be spinning at an Avicii & Friends party on Thursday, March 27
