13th Heineken TransAtlantic Festival

13th Heineken TransAtlantic FestivalApril 10 & 11, 6pm-11pm – North Beach Bandshell, 7275 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach

Each year the annual Heineken Transatlantic Festival, presented by The Rhythm Foundation, explores modern world music from the great cities of the Atlantic rim – Europe, Africa, Latin America, the Caribbean and North America, featuring artists working in collision between traditional rhythms and electronica/DJ culture. The two-day festival will pay tribute to Miami as a true modern TransAtlantic capital and crossroad of the Old and New Worlds. This year’s headliners include American indie darlings Wild Belle; NYC’s afro-soul big bad Budos Band; Chilean hip-hop emcee Ana Tijoux; Colombia’s rebellious cumbia experimentalists Puerto Candelaria; and local acts My Deer, Bluejay and JJ Drums. After-party both nights at Sandbar Lounge. Tickets are $27 for a Weekend Pass; Single Day Pass $15 in advance and $20 at the door; children under 12 are free.
