Sirius XM Lounge Day 2: Hardwell Arrives
Sirius XM Kicks Off Miami Music Week
Sirius XM Lounge Presents Hardwell
Sirius XM’s flagship event, their Miami Music Week Lounge, continued Thursday afternoon under the summer Miami breeze. Tucked away in the comforting and beautiful corner of the W Hotel in the North corner of South Beach, the lounge continues to house the most star power in one location, usually sporting multiple DJ’s on the decks at all moments. With intimate artist interviews, live sets, and surprise appearances from DJs, this remains the event to check out year after year.
We continue the tour with Day 2: Hardwell’s Revealed Recordings takeover.
Dyro Kicks the Party Off
Dyro began the afternoon with an electro-infused set to wake up the Miami attendees from their hungover early afternoon. With a mix from Swedish House Mafia’s old tracks to the newest Revealed Recordings have to offer, Dyro made sure that he set the tone for the afternoon. No dozing off was allowed – it was time to dance.
Steve Aoki Makes an Appearance
Look who it is.
The Sirius XM Lounge is no stranger to surprise cameos – in fact, the intimate setup if anything encourages artists to come by to escape the insanity of Miami Music Week to relax and catch up with one another. The father of DIm Mak, Steve Aoki, was today’s surprise guest, strolling by to the screams of adoring fans as he passed through the crowd.
Hardwell Takes Over
Right before his massive IDMA wins, Hardwell makes his presence felt in the headlining set. In such an intimate setting, you can really feel how famous and adored Hardwell is among his fans. His presence alone raises the energy of a venue, regardless what you think of his music. His star power is that tangible.
The life of a #1 DJ.
Zedd also made a fun appearance, stopping by and bringing his usual playful side. Always a fun friend to be around, he always brings smiles to the other DJ’s faces, usually clowning around and taking the driver’s seat as the life of the party.
He showed up at the right one.
Hardwell’s Family Revealed
Hardwell came prepared at the Sirius XM Lounge closing set. As if an intimate party with him wasn’t enough, he brought fellow collaborator Amba Shepherd as well, where they shared a stage with her vocals. With W&W sharing time as well on the decks, this was a truly special moment for the Revealed Recordings crew.
