Spring Break is back and it’s bigger than ever, with venues as far south as Schlitterbahn Beach Waterpark and as far north as Clayton’s Beach Bar unveiling huge entertainment lineups for the 2015 season.
In the absence of Coca-Cola Beach, longtime Spring Break hotspot Isla Grand Hotel is offering daily pool parties and is ready to welcome party-goers from 2 p.m. until 2 a.m. Happy hour prices will occur until 10 p.m., with the Inertia Pool Parties every Wednesday, and The Ultimate Let Loose Pool Party sponsored by U.M.E. every Thursday from 12 p.m. until 6 p.m. Notable performers include Waka Flocka Flame who will perform on Thursday, March 19. The hotel will also be hosting a beer pong championship every Thursday. Drink specials include $2 beers and shots, along with $2.50 margaritas.
On the bay side, Louie’s Backyard will be hosting “Legendary Spring Break Parties” daily starting at 9 p.m. featuring a variety of DJs and other performers.
The Ultimate Music Experience, more commonly known as UME, will feature four nights of fast-paced fun at Schlitterbahn Beach Waterpark on the south side of the Island. Things kick off on Wednesday night with the official pre-party featuring Steve Aoki. Thursday has David Guetta ready to croon his pop hits to the masses, while Friday Hardwell comes to town. The series wraps up with the return of Tiësto, who will be mixing beats live in what’s sure to be a show that gets people moving.
On the north side of the Island, the party continues at Clayton’s Beach Bar, with big names filling up the calendar every day of the week. Spring Breakers can have a blast playing in the suds at the Foam N’Glow party on the 14th, or groove to Matt Stillwell on the 16th and the Randy Rogers Band on the 17th. Rapper Wiz Khalifa returns for another Spring Break performance on Monday, March 16. Fans of rap will also enjoy appearances by T-Pain on March 18, Big Sean on the 19th, and 2 Chainz on March 21. Finally, R&B star J.Cole will perform on the 19th.
Clayton’s will also offer free beach parties every afternoon, with live music, food, and drink specials every day, including their signature drink the Turbo Piña Colada and signature dish of fried shrimp. There’s no cover to get in, except during paid concerts.
