WRE_9319

On Friday, June 3, 2016 the Faena Theater in Miami celebrated its grand opening with the highly anticipated world premiere for C’est Rouge!, a sensual and seductive revue set in the intimate 150-seat cabaret-style theater. Blanca Li, internationally celebrated choreographer, orchestrated a fantasyland of beauty, mystery and desire told through enthralling vignettes set to Latin American and Jazz rhythms of the C’est Rouge! band. WGY was there for all of the exciting celebrations!

Hosted by Alan Faena and Ximena Caminos, the evening was enjoyed by a definitive mix from the world of art, design, film and fashion. Revelers included Len Blavatnik, Dwyane Wade, Oribe, Inés Rivero, Romero Britto, Elsa Benitez, Bhakti Baxter, Marvin Ross Friedman & Adrienne Bon Haes, Lee Brian Schrager, Ugo & Sara Colombo, David & Christy Martin, Jonathan & Criselda Breene, Chad & Ilona Oppenheim, George Lindemann, Calyann Barnett, Miky & Leticia Grendene, Kotan Fernandez & Candela Ferro, Iran Issa Khan and Harmony Korine to name a few.

C’est Rouge! guests experienced a memorable show in an enchanting setting cloaked in the grand style of European opera houses juxtaposed with the glamour of 1950s Miami. After the show, the party continued as boldfaced names and guests alike made their way to the clandestine Saxony Bar.

Alan Faena brought together a first-class artistic team, featuring Blanca Li as Director and Choreographer and Dani Morla as Artistic Director.

The fantastical late night show is now open to the public on Fridays and Saturdays with doors opening at 9:30pm and shows starting at 10:30pm at the Faena Theater located on 32nd street and Collins Avenue. Tickets are on sale beginning at $45 and are available through www.ticketmaster.com.

AboutULTRA WORLDWIDE™
ULTRA WORLDWIDE™ is the global edition of the World’s Premier Electronic Music event, ULTRA MUSIC FESTIVAL.
The ULTRA brand was founded in 1997 by Executive Producer, President & CEO Russell Faibisch, and began producing electronic music events in South Florida, which led to the inaugural Ultra Music Festival in 1999 on the sands of Miami Beach.
The internationally renowned festival, which has taken place every March since its inception, celebrated its eighteenth anniversary from March 18-20, 2016 by bringing over 165,000 music enthusiasts to the sold out waterfront event in the heart of the City of Miami. Ultra Music Festival returns to Bayfront Park for its nineteenth annual edition, 24-26 March 2017.
Choosing to follow a unique, creative vision and a wholly organic growth focused around a true love for music, artists and fans alike, the ULTRA and ULTRA Worldwide™ brands represent not only the world’s biggest and most successful remaining INDEPENDENT electronic music festival brand, they are now the most international of any festival brand in the world by far. The event organizers continue to transport the unrivalled experience from the Miami flagship festival to an ever-growing number of destinations and fans all over the globe.
Over the past eighteen years, literally thousands of the world’s most iconic DJs, producers and live acts have mesmerized audiences with awe-inspiring sets at ULTRA festivals in ARGENTINA, BALI, BRAZIL, CHILE, CROATIA, IBIZA, JAPAN, KOREA, SOUTH AFRICA and of course MIAMI, as well as ROAD TO ULTRA® events in BOLIVIA, CHILE, COLOMBIA, MACAU, PARAGUAY, PERU, THE PHILIPPINES, PUERTO RICO, SEOUL, SINGAPORE, TAIWAN, THAILAND, TOKYO and the USA. Each and every new global edition is founded on the same successful recipe that has been perfected over eighteen years in Miami, combining the most diverse electronic talent with the most technologically advanced, large-scale festival productions in the world.
In addition, the ULTRA brands pioneered the live stream experience, ‘ULTRA LIVE’ (whereby the festival is brought online to over 20 million unique viewers globally) and the audio broadcasting platform ‘UMF RADIO’ (syndicated to FM Radio in over 77 countries and reaching more than 22 million listeners weekly). Also UMF FILMS’ collaboration with FINAL KID has seen some of the most visually breathtaking festival aftermovies in the music space, including a feature-length documentary exploring the explosion of dance music, entitled CAN U FEEL IT, which premiered at the Ultra Music Festival, Miami 2012 and was exhibited in over 500 theaters across the Unites States.
2016 will see the ULTRA and ULTRA WORLDWIDE™ brands continue to push the boundaries even further, bringing an unparalleled combination of cutting edge productions and the world’s best electronic acts back to previous strongholds and new frontiers across the globe. With a brand new edition of ULTRA Brasil confirmed to take place in Rio de Janeiro on 14-15 October 2016, ULTRA Singapore becoming a full scale two-day festival on 9-10 September and with ROAD TO ULTRA® entering Hong Kong later this year, the ULTRA brand has now united TWENTY COUNTRIES across FIVE CONTINENTS worldwide.

Saturday March 19th: Calvin Harris


A FEW DO’S AND DON’TS 

  • DO plan in advance how you’re going to get there. There are plenty of cabs/ubers within the Miami Dade Area. Depending where you are coming from, know transportation should vary between $20-$60.
  • DON’T adventure yourself into the festival without any knowledge of where and how to get there. Would you go into the jungle without any plans first? Well the same logic goes here.
  • DO stay hydrated and wear sunscreen. The sun is hot and it is unforgiving. You may not realize it, but stand out there too long and you’ll pay for it later on
  • DON’T spend the entire festival with your phone out. Sure the videos and pictures will be awesome. But live for the moment! You’ll be surrounded by people from all across the globe along some of the most famous DJs in the industry, so enjoy your time! You can always re-live the experience through your memories.
  • DO have the best time of your life!!

 

Have fun & Be safe

 

Spotify Has A Big Announcement On The Eve Of Apple’s Beats Launch

maqtzw8e1obyyloqdqz3

The Battle of the Streaming Services is heating up, as Spotify prepares to make a major announcement that could undercut expected rival, Apple’s Beats music streaming service, momentum going into their launch. On Thursday, May 7, the Swedish based company delivered invitations to members of the media for an taking place on May 20. The invitation had a simple message, “We’ve got some news.”

According to experts and insiders, Spotify has been working on a web video business, which could be up and running as early as this month. It is assumed that this announcement will focus on this video development, as well as news that the company will also expand into podcasts.

Spotify has scheduled their event a mere two weeks before Apple‘s annual Worldwide Developers Conference. Many believe that this will be the moment where Apple announces their Spotify competitor, which would have strong ties to Beats’ technology and services, iTunes, iOS, and Apple  TV.

While Spotify is adding some interesting new features, at the end consumers’ decisions may come down to their budget, which Apple’s service edges out. Spotify’s Premium service is $9.99 per month, whereas Apple’s expected competitor is rumored to launch at $7.99. It’s hard to predict who will come out the victor, but both companies have definitely thrown down their respective gauntlets.
