2010 Winter Party Festival, March 3–8, Features 10 Dance Parties

The 2010 Winter Party Festival welcomes back returning star DJ’s Roland Belmares, Alyson Calagna, Chus & Ceballos, Ted Eiel, Brett Henrichsen, Pride, Rosabel and Tracy Young.

In addition, appearing for the first time at Winter Party this year are eight talented DJs from around the world, including The Perry Twins, who bring their Los Angeles sounds to Miami for the Under One Sun Pool Party on Saturday afternoon, March 6. Another Los Angeles favorite, DJ Saratonin, will take the turntables Saturday night when Pandora presents Industry, the popular women’s dance party at South Beach’s famous China Grill.


Ana Paula, direct from Rio de Janeiro, brings her upbeat, high-energy set to the Winter Party Beach Party on Sunday, March 7. This musical dynamo has a growing legion of fans from around the world. Sunday night will be a marquee event with Boris, a resident DJ at New York’s famed Pacha, spinning on the Space Terrace at Orbit: The Only Official Sunday night dance party

Neither the Festival nor the talent ends there: another new arrival to Winter Party Festival, New York’s Hector Fonseca, will take guests on a ride through Aftermath at Nocturnal on Monday morning, March 7. And it all comes to a close Monday night at Mova Lounge (formerly Halo) where local DJ Oren Nizri spins the Recovery Party. Also debuting as opening DJ’s this year are Miami’s own Charlmix for the Under One Sun Pool Party on Saturday and Alexander from Los Angeles for Elevation on Saturday night

Winter Party Festival is produced by the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force. Since 1994, Winter Party Festival and its sister event, the Miami Recognition Dinner, have raised more than $2.3 million for organizations serving the South Florida LGBT community. Two-thirds of the net proceeds from Winter Party Festival will be distributed to the Miami-Dade LGBT community through a granting program administered by the Dade Community Foundation, while the remaining one-third of the proceeds will benefit the Task Force.

Over 10,000 guests from all over the United States and abroad attend at least one of the 25+ events—including dance, fashion, art, dining, and more—that take place in Miami, Miami Beach and Fort Lauderdale.

The Festival climaxes with the Winter Party Beach Party, a dance event on the sands of South Beach. In 2009, more than 6,000 guests celebrated the 15th anniversary of the Beach Party. Winter Party Festival—it’s MUCH more than a day at the beach.
