​New documentary highlights the Miami nightlife challenging the American dream

For the fourth installment of Red Bull's ongoing documentary series Inspire The Night, the episode focuses on the Floridian nightlife collective Link Miami Rebels, a group of immigrant nightlife practitioners who are building a strong clubland community and working towards their hopes and dreams in their newly adopted country.

Following the core members of this DJ and production collective, Link Miami Rebels show the world how the city's distinct cultural landscape has served in solidifying its reputation as a mecca for electronic music in the US. With a population of 460,000 where 51 per cent of all residents are foreign-born, famous nightclubs such as Club Space have become shining examples of dancefloor diversity at its finest.

Challenging stereotypes and sharing stories of personal triumph over bigotry and oppression, these immigrant music industry professionals, DJs have impacted the community and how inclusivity and unrelenting passion breeds success in clubland.

Check out the full nine-minute documentary below.
