Audiofly headlines Flying Circus Miami 5 Year Celebration
Miami isn't just some metaphorical cheap beach motel where the electronic dance music industry from overseas gathers to mingle and party during WMC. No, it's also the place where some of the world's top EDM brands are actually born.

Case in point: Flying Circus, the long-standing WMC party conceived by UK DJ-production duo Audiofly and Miami promotions veterans SAFE.

"It was a perfectly beautiful accident. It came together as a last minute idea over a leisurely chat with the Audiofly boys," Diego Martinelli of SAFE tells Crossfade.

"No one was doing anything catering to our sound on the Wednesday of WMC week, so we thought of organizing a simple daytime party to which we could invite our DJ friends and make a fun afternoon out of it. It was a smash success and we decided immediately to make it a yearly tradition. We never imagined it would soon after turn into such a globally-demanded thing."

Indeed, since that first WMC session in March 2008, Flying Circus has emerged as one the most popular party brands on the international underground house and techno scene, hosting marathon lineups with their extended family of world-renowned DJs from Peru to Ibiza. But with the concentration of international partygoers in Miami each March, Flying Circus remains first and foremost a staple of the WMC. And this March they will be celebrating their fifth year in Miami at a new venue, Villa 221 in downtown Miami.

"This year's Flying Circus marks a milestone for us, not just because we have been doing it for five years and it's become synonymous with the opening of WMC, but also because the brand has become a truly global force to be reckoned with," Audiofly's Luca Saporito tells Crossfade. "We are more than excited to host the party at a new venue, Villa 221, and to have with us some of the most exciting talent on earth. It will certainly be one to remember."

Flying Circus Miami Five-Year Celebration. Wednesday, March 21. Villa 221, 221 NE 17th St., Miami. The party starts at 11 a.m. and tickets cost $20 via wantickets.com.

@a034fcb0374d3d6b718ee388afd974cf:disqus, there needs to be SOME longevity to a DJs career, don't you think? What do you want, a totally fresh crop of DJs every year? DJs need years to perfect their craft. The seasoned veterans on a lineup like Flying Circus deliver the goods precisely because of their years of experience. Besides, there's a few more fresh faces than just the two you mentioned. Droog, tINI, and Bill Patrick, for instance, haven't put in much WMC time yet.

Hey Sean, i definitely agree with longevity on a djs career and no i don't expect a fresh crop of djs every year. Droog have been playing in miami a lot(not only this year but previous years), Tini has also been around in miami( i think he was here earlier this year as well as  last year a few times. Bill patrick may be the only guy who is "kinda fresh faced" although hes been around. But i guess what  i'm trying to say is that nobody is taking risks, everybody seems to go along with the "Hyped up dj's" or sounds that have been popular the last couple of years. I understand that most of these djs are friends and its common for them to play together all the time in each others parties. And so far except for a few(very few) parties it's kinda 80 % the same lineups that have been going on for the last 2 years. I just thing that promoters and venues can do a little bit better.Anyway, at the end of the day its just an opinion.Cheers

Beside Guillaume & The Coutu Dumonts & maybe my favorite Robot, this lineup like all the line ups for march seemed to be super dated. come on, it's like a re-hash of the same dj's that always play every year. So Boring!!!!
