Dutch electronic music producer Sam Feldt, South African house group Goldfish and sustainability platform Orca Sound Project have joined forces with Miami environmental group Volunteer Clean Up for a very special MMW beach party – with one lucky participant walking away with 2 tickets to Ultra Music Festival and a Solgaard Lifepack Backpack with S3 Solarbank Boombox!
Miami Music Week and Ultra Music Festival combine to create one of the biggest celebrations of electronic music in the world. For Goldfish, the Orca Sound Project and Feldt’s Heartfeldt Foundation, it provides the perfect opportunity to come together for a beach clean-up party like no other.
“Litter is everywhere,” Posey Collis, director of Orca Sound Project, said. “Soda bottles, plastic bags and cigarette butts have a serious effect on our environment, polluting our seas, choking our wildlife and threatening our planet. Together we want to tackle this problem by collecting data from the clean-up to help us work with companies and organisations to find more sustainable solutions whilst ensuring a circular economy. Stay tuned to find out how the trash we collect will be up-cycled and form its new life.”
Those taking part of the beach clean-up will not only be able to hang out with dance superstars Sam Feldt and Goldfish in person, but also enjoy a one-off pop-up sunset party powered by Soundboks speakers, a unique portable sound system that lets you take the party, quite literally, anywhere. If that wasn’t enough, one lucky attendee will also find out if they’ve won a pair of Ultra Music Festival tickets and a Solgaard Lifepack Backpack with S3 Solarbank Boombox, announced on the sand between 6pm and 7pm!
To be a part of this incredible event, visit bit.ly/VolunteerCleanUpMiami_SFGFOSP and RSVP on the site. Location details will be sent through via email to those accredited. There are limited places on the clean-up making it a strictly first come, first served affair.
As well as the chance to win 2 Ultra Music Festival tickets and a Solgaard Lifepack Backpack with S3 Solarbank Boombox, those cleaning up will also be gifted sustainable merchandise including Dopper water bottles which they can fill up at any of the Water stations located across South Beach. Clean-up materials will be provided and no single-use plastics will be allowed. Trash can be found everywhere, so flexible clothing with that in mind is advised. Participants are encouraged to download the CleanSwell app which will collect data from the clean-up and show the event’s environmental impact.

ABOUT ORCA SOUND PROJECT:
Orca Sound Project is a platform for collaboration, consultation and activation. We actively source, collect and treat ocean plastic ready for production. We look for collaborations, working with brands to create product out of ocean plastic, whilst building brand-centric content for heightened visibility. Orca Sound Project subsidises global fisheries to trawl for plastic instead of fish, not only to clear plastic waste from our oceans but also to combat overfishing.
ABOUT VOLUNTEER CLEAN-UP:
Wouldn’t it be great if there was a platform where people could build teams, communicate with each other, and organize their own clean-up events? How about a place where a volunteer could find a local cleanup and volunteer a couple hours of their time? How about a place where students or businesses could organize their own folks to clean up a section of their neighborhood – whether in the water, on the coastline, or on land. Welcome to VolunteerCleanup.org. Grab a bag, rally some friends, put on a pair gloves, and go clean up your neighborhood. No one else is going to do it.

The SOUNDBOKS is a Bluetooth speaker designed for the most extreme uses and environments that you can imagine. With a birch cabinet and 40 hr battery, it’s durable and portable enough to take everywhere. And 122 dB through 2×10” drivers mean it’s loud enough to start a party anywhere. SOUNDBOKS began as three high school friends in Denmark. We wanted to break through the noise of Roskilde Festival with the loudest music and the best parties. So we designed and built a speaker that would outlast the wildest nights and take anything our favorite week-long, outdoor festival could throw at it. Since then, we’ve taken the SOUNDBOKS experience to the Sahara Desert, through the jungles of the Amazon and to the top of Kilimanjaro. Today, there are over 25,000 SOUNDBOKS speakers in over 40 countries, and we are on a mission to connect a community that is pushing the possibility of what can happen when awesome people and great music come together in epic locations.
