While the poor suckers up north are freezing their asses off while running around town in the snow on New Year’s Eve, revelers in Miami will be hanging out poolside, (hell, they’ll be IN the darn pool), while celebrating the start of 2012 in the south Florida heat.

These are the fiestas calientes for NYE 2012 in Miami.

EC Twins @ SET Miami

Britain’s EC Twins will set a raucous soundtrack to the party at the opulent SET nightclub. The fete features an open bar (‘til midnight, so get there early), a champagne toast and a crew of go-go dancers, who will surely inspire some moves of your own.

Deadmau5 @ Fontainebleau

Double your party pleasure by hitting Deadmau5’ New Year’s Day poolside set at Fontainebleau. The 1/1 lineup also includes Steven Luke, Troy Kurtz and Damaged Goods, and the post-Mau5 party will rage until the early morning hours indoors at Arkadia.

Afrojack @ WET at the W Hotel South Beach

Nick van de Wall (you know him better as Afrojack) will take over the decks at the gorgeous (heated!) pool in the ultra-sexy W Hotel South Beach for a wet and wild segueway into 2012.

Alesso @ the W Hotel South Beach

Swedish house master Alesso will also be playing the W at the hotel’s indoor lounge, Wall.

NYE @ The Gansevoort

Lift off into 2012 while partying 18 stories from the ground at the gorgeous rooftop pool at the Gansevoort hotel. This “adult playground” offers 360 degree views of the ocean and city, and the Gansevoort’s NYE party promises drinks, food, a “world renowned DJ and a taste of the “privileged high life.”

NYE @ Club Space

Although the NYE lineup at Club Space has not been announced, the fact that this venue was been voted the “best nightclub in the US” by the 2011 International Dance Music Awards bodes well for a memorable fete.

Tiësto @ LIV (12/29)

Start the NYE celebration early by getting down with Tiësto (and several thousand other people) at LIV on December 29.

Kaskade @ LIV (12/30)

There will be no rest for the dance-ey at LIV as Kaskade moves in the night after Tiësto for another ramp up to an amped up New Year’s.

NYE @ Mansion

Known for annually hosting one of the biggest New Years Eve celebrations in the world, Mansion Miami will ring in 2012 with a larger than life celebration featuring music and multiple open bars. That’s good enough for us.
