We Are Herea two-day event on Miami’s Virginia Key, combining beautiful weather with beach views, high energy, great food and pounding house music.

One of the sure highlights of the weekend was the performance of Giolì & Assia, the EDM.com Class of 2021 duo, who dazzle with their signature blend of organic live instruments and captivating vocals.
