Your Belle Isle Blog usually doesn’t go down the star-struck path, and we know The Standard draws its share of low-key celebs.
But we’re proud to note that Diplo, one of the biggest stars of the parties around Ultra Music Festival 2011, which officially kicked off Friday, is spending the week at The Standard, and part of his crew is rooming with family at 9 Island Avenue.
If you haven’t heard of Diplo, you might have seen him in mainstream ads for Blackberry Torch. In Miami this week, he’s been a key part of something called Hard Miami, a series of parties at Grand Central, 697 N. Miami Ave.
The Ultra festival is sold out, but you may feel the vibrations all the way from Bicentennial Park.
And Diplo spent much of the week working different parties, including on Friday night at a house on Venetian Way.
