Jameson Irish Whiskey brings great music to Hialeah for this indoor warehouse party with their Crate Mates DJ Crew. Join us and enjoy a great night in the Leah Arts District with some of the hottest South Florida talent hitting the turntables and battling it out for your applause. They curate a unique, virtual crate for five hand-picked contestants before each take the stage for a 10-minute set to show us what they got. While you jam to their beats, watch the Paint YO Crate Battle where six local street artists are selected to paint Jameson crates! Artists have 20 minutes to complete their crates while the Crate Mates DJs spin! It's the ultimate DJ battle; a stand off to be in the Crate Mates DJ Crew.

About The Leah Arts District
Hialeah’s Southeastern industrial corridor rose to prominence during the 1980s as one of the largest and busiest areas of production and manufacturing in Florida. As a result of modernization combined with the effects of outsourcing, the uses that were once prevalent in the area dissipated and this particular area was all but abandoned.
Since that time, a medley of different uses has been incorporated into the area including a heavy presence of some of Miami-Dade County’s most prolific thrift stores.
These thrift stores have been instrumental in introducing Hialeah to an entire generation of antique lovers and artists. The Hialeah Artist Live/Work Overlay District, also known as The Leah Arts District, enjoys a strategic proximity to the newly proposed Hialeah Market Station development project, Miami’s artistic hubs, and other destination areas within Miami-Dade County. Because of it's location and highly affordable price per square footage, Hialeah’s new Artist Live / Work District is in a position to play a vital and important role in the artistic and cultural development of not only Hialeah, but the entire South Florida community.
