Three Days, 25 Stages, 600 Hours of Music

Unlike most massive weekend-long smorgasbords of tuneage, the three-day Miami Music Festival is almost entirely focused on the local scene. With the exception of a few bands, such as Greenpoint and New York’s Big Suga, the festival will present 600 performances by South Florida artists repping every permutation of music from hip-hop to Latin to indie and beyond.

Kicking off this Thursday and running through Saturday, the MMF is guaranteed to be a sprawling, nonstop series of pure party moments. Every night around 9, local notables such as Hood City, José El Rey, and Awesome New Republic will storm the festival tents (SE Eighth Street and South Miami Avenue, Miami) as well as a bunch of Brickell-area bars — including Transit Lounge, Tobacco Road, and RedBar — and farther-flung joints such as Bayside’s Hard Rock Café and downtown’s Club Mekka. Luckily, most performers will play multiple times throughout the weekend, so if you plan carefully, you might see, like, a quarter of your top picks. It’s time to make your spreadsheets. Single event tickets cost $10 at the door, but $25 one-day and $50 three-day passes are also available. Call 608-271-3633, or visit
