Following the opening day of the wildly successful MUSIC LOVE FASHION featuring AVICII headlining at the Raleigh hotel in Miami Beach, the Owsla Miami poolside party kicks-off today, starting at 12 Noon and presented by No Sugar Added, featuring the sought-after and acclaimed Grammy Winner, SKRILLEX, among other supporting acts.
In 2012, the dubstep king was nominated for five Grammy awards and won for Best Dance Recording ('Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites') and the same album took home an award for electronic music's biggest category, Best Dance/Electronica Album. Aside from the immediate success of his first release, Skrillex has also made a name for himself as a highly sought-after remixer, with officially commissioned remixes for Black Eyed Peas (“Rock That Body”), Lady Gaga (“Bad Romance” and “Alejandro”), and La Roux (“In For The Kill”) among others. Supporting acts throughout the day include sets by Zedd, Kill The Noise, Koan, Alvin Risk, The M Machine, Nick Thayer and Dillon Francis, all of who will be making special guest appearances. Tickets are priced at $40 (in advance) for general admission, with beds or tables starting at $3,000 (6 guests) and cabanas starting at $10,000 (20 guests) each served with magnums of Belvedere and Moet.
