As Spring descends in South Florida, Ocean Drive celebrates the power of music as part of the city’s rich history
MIAMI, FL - MARCH 4- Today, Ocean Drive, part of Modern Luxury Media, is launching the Spring Fashion and Music Issue. Historically, each year the biggest names in the music industry touch down in Miami for a week of star-studded fetes and the annual Ultra Music Festival. While this year might be a little different, Ocean Drive’s latest issue highlights how the music scene remains strong despite the lack of festivals.
As part of Modern Luxury South Florida, Miami’s leading luxury lifestyle media platform and premium resource for the South Florida area, Ocean Drive highlights how music brings the city to life each year, and the dynamic power players who are shaking up the local scene.
There couldn’t be a better and more vibrant duo to serve as the cover stars of Ocean Drive’s music issue than Pharrell Williams and David Grutman as they debut their first-ever hotel together. The Goodtime Hotel is located on the historic Washington Avenue and is a signal of rebirth of the street that once embodied the nexus of Miami’s most infamous nightlife. Alongside architect Raymond Jungles, the all-star team has come together to bring forth a stunning hotel with enticing food, beverage and entertainment programs that will shake up the scene, set to debut in early March.
Within the issue, editor in chief Paige Mastandrea also chats with female superstar musicians, Billie Eilish, Rosalia and Selena Gomez, who are both making waves as they put out new all-Spanish music, breaking through the boundaries of language. The issue also highlights a special feature on the current real-estate market in Miami, and what today’s real estate moguls have to say about the South Florida market boom.
“March Madness in Miami has always been synonymous with music,'' said Mastandrea. “Through the good times and bad, Miami has always kept the beat of the city alive and well. Ocean Drive is always at the center of it all, and we hope readers are able to feel the warmth and magic of Miami through these pages.”
