Taking place along 8th street, as the name suggests, Calle Ocho Music Festival is a block party-turned-festival that welcomes more than one million party goers annually. Delicious food, lively music, vibrant dance, and interesting art fill the streets as the festival stretches out over ten days every March.
Join the crowds dancing salsa on the street and enjoy live performances and musicians rocking out on 12 different stages. You’ll hear everything from the beats of merengue, to reggeaton, bachata, balada, hip hop, rap, jazz and more, all in one day!
Ultra Music Festival
Quite Possibly the Largest EDM Music Festivals in the world. Miami is the home for Ultra, and is THE premiere destination for EDM musicians and fans-alike. The three-day festival is headlined by the biggest DJs in the genre and hosts up to 70,000 people a day. With Tickets getting sold-out almost the instant they go on sale, what was once a one-day event held on the sand of Miami Beach, has grown over two decades to become a signature global weekend music festival.
