GroundUP Music Festival 2019

GroundUP Music Festival 2019February 8 – 10, North Beach Bandshell, 7275 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach
The third annual GroundUp Music Festival returns to The North Beach Bandshell presented by GroundUp Music in partnership with The Rhythm Foundation. The festival, hailed by the Miami New Times as “one of the 10 best music events”, will reveal the 2019 line-up soon.  Hosted by three-time Grammy winning band Snarky Puppy founded by bassist Michael League, it will feature a special set from the band each day along with performances from an eclectic list of international artists all day long. Artists for the first two years included Esperanza Spalding, David Crosby, Chris Thile, Jacob Collier, Laura Mvula, The Wood Brothers, Buika, Eliades Ochoa, Joshua Redman, Béla Fleck & the Flecktones Trio with Victor Wooten & Futureman, Robert Glasper, Knower, Charlie Hunter, JoJo Mayer/Nerve, Mark Guiliana and other exceptionally talented and diverse artists from all over the world. The North Beach Bandshell’s Amphitheater and sprawling adjacent Palm Grove Park and beachfront complex will once again host the festival during the three-day event with intimate master classes and workshops and personal interactions with the artists. With room for only about 1,800 people a day, the intent is to keep the space comfortable and intimate in order to create an optimal experience for both the audience and artists, with a comfortable and warm atmosphere and local cuisine by celebrity-chef Michelle Bernstein. #GroundUPFest @GroundUPFest
