The Miami Music Festival Announces Expansion, 2010 Dates, and Calls for Artist Applications

We've just heard the Second Annual Miami Music Festival will be taking place November 12-14 as a key part of Live Music Month in Miami. More than 500 performances by new and developing artists will be showcased throughout South Florida that weekend, with two daytime sessions on five stages in Bayfront Park and a show at the Adrienne Arsht Center among the venues on the festival's roster.

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 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."
