Other activities taking place that weekend include a music industry and artists' conference at the Hyatt Regency Miami on Friday and Saturday.
Bands and musicians can submit showcase applications, register for the conference, and reserve discounted stays by going to miamimusicfestival.org beginning this Saturday.
Last year's event was a big success, and we're hoping with the expansion lots of our local talent will turn out. "The MMF will again present an amazing array of rock, alternative, and singer/songwriter acts but will feature in equal measure Latin, urban, Caribbean, and jazz artists," says the festival's CEO, Irwin Kornfeld. "Miami's live music scene continues to develop and grow, and the MMF is growing with it."
