Miami Beach Pop Festival - A Multi Genre Rendition
Paul Peck, the co-founder of Okeechobee Music and Arts Festival and the mastermind behind Bonnaroo’s very own Super Jam has pulled something new out of his sleeve- An immersive and multi-genre festival that will be taking place on the lively, picturesque beaches of Miami. A festival meant to bring diversity through it’s lineup and attendees while creating a weekend of connection and unity.
Latin artists like Daddy Yankee, Juanes, Natti Natasha, Lali, Brytiago and Rauw Alejandro will be making history on these beachfront stages. It’s uncommon for Latin artists to headline festivals and Miami will be raising the bar by having more than one Latin artist on the bill for its first year! More and more Latino artists will be making their way onto festival lineups and we’re excited to see what unfolds for future lineup releases!
The weekend will also include a “Sol Jam” featuring Nile Rogers and surprise guests as well as a dedication to Bob Marley presented by son, Stephen Marley. These jam sessions are once in a lifetime moments to have artists from different genres share a stage together and just jam out! There’s something magical about seeing such diversity on one stage where artists you never imagined to play next to each other happen to join talented forces and unleash their art for the crowd to see. No rules, just the unmistakable freedom to create; It’s something you definitely don’t want to miss!
