Winter Music Conference + Ultra Music Festival

2020 Pool Parties Cancelled

Recognizing the impact that coronavirus (COVID-19) is causing around the world, our highest priority is the health and wellbeing of our guests and employees. With that in mind, and following the mandates of the City of Miami, the EPIC Pool Parties that were set to take place from March 17 through March 22 at the Kimpton EPIC Hotel have been postponed. This is out of an abundance of caution and follows the guidelines of local, national and international authorities. Any pre-purchased tickets or packages will be refunded. For more information, please contact

Join us annually in March for a series of poolside events during an EPIC week of music. Make it out to our very own 16th floor pool deck where we host daily parties throughout the week with world famous and renowned DJ's.

During the same weekend, Ultra Music Festival is taking over Miami featuring top DJ’s from around the world in an ultimate festival setting. Leaving from Bayside Marketplace, a short walk from our hotel. See walking directions to Bayside for Ultra Music Festival.
