Urban Beach Week, formerly known as Hip Hop Weekend is an annual Memorial Day Weekend event. Tens of thousands of hip-hop lovers head to Miami Beach for a week of parties, concerts, and beach-going for the unofficial start of the summer season.
Urban Beach Week has always drawn a mix of Miami-locals, out-of-towners and hip hop heavyweights like P Diddy, T.I., Lil’ Wayne, Rick Ross, Young Jeezy, Busta Rhymes, the Miami Heat’s DJ Irie and more. Clubs all around Miami Beach pack the week with lavish and over-the-top parties that range from ultra-exclusive to accessible to everyone. Get out your most fabulous party outfit on! This is a week where everyone pulls out all the stops. The finest champagne is poured, the coolest DJs on the scene are flown in and the party is ongoing 24 hours a day for the long weekend.
