See a rare upclose look at one of the top DJs in the world! I’ve filmed nightclubs in Atlanta and Miami…but the energy in Sarasota last night was just amazing! As far as I’m concerned, the VMF founders have a huge success on their hands. It’s about time for this infusion of excitement into the Sarasota nightlife. If you didn’t make it…so sad for you…so just plan next year’s spring break or vacation around this event – it’s sure to stay around!

Sarasota young VIPs partied at the Vinyl Music Festival opening event at the Ivory Lounge last night. This was the kick off for the 4 day Vinyl Music Festival. According to Rich Swier, VMF cofounder, “we created and will continue to build Vinyl in order to bring more current world-class musical entertainment to a worldclass city.” In our view, this first night was a success and generated great buzz about the festival leading up to the main event on Saturday night.
An electronic music festival that celebrates electronic and dance music artists kicked off last night with a launch party at Ivory Lounge. The VMF was started in 2009, and this year is being held concurrently with the Sarasota Film Festival. Featuring the best DJs in the US, this 4 day festival will attract enthusiasts to music events at a number of local venues including Michaels on East, Ivory Lounge, Evies Downtown and Pacific Rim.
The event features DJs from all over the world – from Finland, Germany, Jamaica, Switzerland and a huge roster of local Florida artists. The music? Well, it’s an array of styles from reggae, to trance, to breaks, dub… you don’t know vinyl? Check out some of these artists and hey old rockers, I’ll bet you find someone that suits your musical fancy!
