“With fans traveling from all over the country to attend North Beach Music Festival, we wanted to give all of the information that we could, as early as we could, to show fans who are thinking of coming to Miami Beach what’s in store for our second year,” shares festival co-founder, Gideon Plotnicki. “This year’s schedule has been carefully crafted to provide fans with a non-stop musical experience they won’t soon forget.

More About North Beach Music Festival
In its inaugural year, “NBMF combined the convenience of a city show, the immersive experience of a ‘farm’ festival, and the breezy inclinations of a beach vacation into one thoroughly enticing live music getaway,” wrote Live For Live Music, and brought a long-overdue curation of festival favorites to south Florida, as noted by JamBase. The inaugural lineup featured the likes of Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Spafford, The Motet featuring Jennifer Hartswick, Shira Elias and Jason Hann, and so much more.

In its second year, the festival moves to three nights! Friday night takes over the Miami Beach Bandshell for an unforgettable night of music celebrating the acclaimed venue’s recent historic landmark designation. The adjacent Bandshell Park welcomes music on Saturday and Sunday for two jam-packed days of festival sets under the palm trees, with full food and craft vending options available, as well as an immersive light show experience.

More About Miami Beach Bandshell
The Miami Beach Bandshell, formerly the North Beach Bandshell, is an open-air amphitheater in the heart of Miami Beach’s North Beach neighborhood. The famed outdoor music venue recently received its historic landmark designation.

It has been managed by the Rhythm Foundation – a Miami Beach-based nonprofit cultural organization – for the City of Miami Beach since 2015. Built in 1961 by Norman Giller and Associates, the Miami Beach Bandshell is an anchor of the North Shore Historic District. The historic district received its 2009 designation on the National Register of Historic Places based on the characteristic style of MiMo (Miami Modernism or MidCentury Modernism), a post-war modern style of architecture.

Since its construction, the Bandshell has served as a community center and gathering place for North Beach residents. Big bands would play on Saturday nights, creating an impromptu ballroom under the stars. In the 1960s, famed variety TV show The Mike Douglas Show was filmed on location at Miami Beach Bandshell during the winter months. In the 1970s, benches were removed and the venue was used as a roller skating rink. For sixty years the North Beach Bandshell has brought people together in the spirit of community, culture and entertainment.
