Four stages, more than a dozen of South Florida's best bands, fabulous food, generous drinks, celebrity speakers from the legal and medical community, and dancing from 4pm to 3am. This party is so big, there's a rumor that the South Beach Clubs may have to close for the night.” Big cars..Movie Stars..in an indoor/outdoor venue big enough for all.
