Miami is no stranger to non-stop partying. It’s patrons are very well known for raging till the sun rises, and then hitting the beach to watch it ascend above the horizon. If there is one thing this city does well, it is nightlife. Sleepless Night is just a testament to that, with all varieties of art possible, being offered throughout the night. From clubbing to opera, pop art to yoga, poetry to aerial dance performances; if it is happening culturally, it’s going on this night. 2011’s Sleepless Night drew a crowd of 130,000 people, and 2012 is expected to be even bigger!
