Dance Now! (appearing in Zone 1)


“Levity II” Luminarium (Zone 2)
Set your clocks now to fall back and culture forward because Sleepless Night will be in Miami Beach in the blink of an eye. From dance performances and sculpture gardens to live bands and street parades, the free, innovative cultural affair will awaken at 6:00 p.m. and will not rest until sunrise at 6:00 a.m. the next day. That will actually be 13 hours – not 12 – due to the end of Daylight Savings Time when the clocks will be set back to 1:00 a.m. at 2:00 a.m., resulting in an extra hour.

This innovative citywide showcase of culture first began internationally when Paris hosted the first Nuit Blanche event in 2002. The success of the event in Paris has made it an annual city celebration and has become an international trend, spreading to cities such as Rome, Madrid, Brussels, Toronto, and now, for the first time in the United States in Miami Beach – a city known as a global trend-setting destination.

Sleepless Night is a collaboration of all the city’s major cultural institutions, theaters, galleries and arts organizations, along with hotels, shops, nightclubs, restaurants, and individual artists and presenters. Every medium of cultural expression will be represented simultaneously during Sleepless Night – all presented without admission charge.

The following zones represent where events will be held throughout the night:
