South Florida fans of roots music, rejoice! The Virginia Key Grassroots Festival is returning for its third year in a row to that funny little plot of beach on Biscayne Bay. This year, it even made our list of the top five fests in the Sunshine State worth a road trip.
You can catch out of town acts like Boston-based reggae guys John Brown's Body or African-via-Asheville's Toubab Krewe. And meaty local favorites like Deerfield Beach's Uproot Hootenanny, Fabrika Music's electro-rockers Minimal and Grammy-nominated Latin trio Locos Por Juana.
Since we know you're itching to get in at a discount, New Times' Voice Daily Deals is offering half off tickets for a limited time. Get them now here, before they sell out.
