FDR Kickoff

YesJulz’s first and only staple party in Miami, FDR Mondays just got a facelift. We switched up the DJ, biding farewell to our beloved Iron Lyon and welcoming our man Reid Waters to the mix. Kick off Art Basel 2015 the RIGHT way, on the dance floor with people who came out to have fun. No confetti. No VIP bullshit. A birdie told us there will be some very special guests tonight, but you will just have to come see for yourself or, of course, tune into Le Snap!

Mark Anthony Green Gallery Opening @ Dream

One of the best parts about Art Basel is the city’s dedication to the culture of expression from artists both well known and emerging. Mark Anthony Green is a perfect example of someone who is breaking through barriers by intriguing the art community of Miami with a curated rooftop pop up shop with limited edition prints. The Brooklyn artist is taking over the Dream Hotel alongside Sprite & Heineken for a special night filled with good vibes and inspiring art.

Ronnie + Julz ‘Just Us’ dinner @ Soho House

Ronnie and Julz are an unstoppable duo. Both incredibly driven, passionate about their craft, these two have both had an incredible year of accomplishments & more importantly, great memories with the friends they hold dearest. Never ones to miss an opportunity to bring everyone together for some good food and conversation, amidst the busiest week of the year, Ronnie and Julz have invited their 20 closest friends to an unforgettable evening at the Soho House for a delectable dinner and drinks. Who knows, they just might send everyone home with the new Ronnie Fieg x Asics dropping this week. #JustUs #KithSet

KITH “Homage” Gallery

Ronnie Fieg continues to achieve great milestones in his life. From his successful brand to his innovative collaborations, Ronnie is always challenging himself to raise the bar both culturally and personally. This time around is no different as the New York designer teams up with Miami’s own Joshua Liner Gallery, where he will be having a “Kith Homage” exhibition hosted by Fieg himself. There will be hand selected artists showcasing their exceptional creations, including Greg Lamarche, David Ellis, Wayne White, Jim Houser and many more. The coolest part? This event is actually a signing party for Ronnie’s first book under the Kith name. If he’s not a Renaissance Man, I don’t know who is!

Galore Mag Party w/ Miguel Performance

If you tuned into the Snap the last time Julz DJ’d an event for Galore, you know that she almost burned the place down with her tracks. Playing everything from TLC to Travis Scott, YESJULZ THE BASE GAWDESS WILL NOT DISSAPOINT. This time is no different, well…it is slightly different, in the best way possible. This time around, MIGUEL will be serenading the crowd at some point in the evening with a special sultry performance. Julz will be accompanied by Mia Morretti, Chelsea Leyland & Sam French on the Decks. No stranger to bombshells, Prince & Jacob, the mag’s master minds & creative directors, made sure to pack the party out with models & babes by having leading ladies Shanina Shaik & Nazanin Mandi host. As if this all wasn’t juicy enough, the Galore party is taking place at Miami’s newest hotspot, Chris Paciello’s very own Rockwell, and will be produced by leading nightlife pioneer Richie Akiva, the man behind our favorite NY & LA hotspots, 1Oak & Up & Down.

A$AP Rocky Dinner
After releasing his most recent project, A$AP Rocky has been on everyone’s radar as we patiently await new creative projects from the young visionary. Many who know him know that one of the main inspirations behind his music and career was that of A$AP Yams, Rocky’s best friend who passed away earlier this year. In honor of Yams & what he has brought to the culture, Mark Anthony Green, A$AP Rocky & Yesjulz have put together a special evening of dinning, music & conversation with a carefully curated guest list consisting of some of the most influential people in music, fashion, and art today.

Barefoot After Party with DJ Esco, A$AP Rocky + Special Guests

barefoot flyer edit
After dinner is an epic after party, where Rocky will *hopefully* play his hottest songs. From “Goldie” to “Everywhere,” featuring Miguel, I am definitely keeping my fingers crossed for this one. Rocky will be joined by Future’s right hand, DJ Esco, Yesjulz and some special guests. If you attended any of Julz’s Basel parties last year, you know this will be one you don’t want to miss. This event will take place at the Dream rooftop and is open to the public. Come early! 

Saturday, 12/5

Complex Party w/ Jaden Smith + Special Guests
Complex Magazine, a cultural boundary pushing publication, is hosting a special pool party on Sunset Isand with this generation’s young leaders. Julz, Jaden Smith & Special guests will all be taking a break from the galleries to cool off and enjoy the Miami weather that is indeed still beachy even thought its almost Christmas time!

Bacardi Untameable House Party

The Dean Collection joins forces with Bacardi for the Untameable House Party, a three day art showcase and event with acts such as Alicia Keys, Pusha T, Swizz Beats & Wiz Khalifa! The flyer even announced that DMX is going to be there! This event will be the perfect blend of art & music.

Sunday, 12/6

Basel Tov

We are pretty sure that by this point, you guys are over the galleries, dinners & exclusive events that you may or may not have been lucky enough to get into. Julz had her heart set on throwing one party that would truly be all about the music, fun & good vibes. If you’ve ever been to any of the Best Day Ever parties, just know that the only difference between Best Day Ever & Baseltov, is that you will have the option to buy really cool art all while swimming, having a burger & twerking. Oh yes, and our new favorite, Lil Uzi, will also be blessing us with a performance that will cap your weekend off right. There may or may not be some other very special guests in the building, but you’ll have to come and see for yourself.

Party is open and free to the public (THANKS SPRITE!) First come first serve entry at door. Groups will be encouraged to purchase table service.
