(Miami Beach, FL) Jan 31, 2020 -
The City of Miami Beach and The Rhythm Foundation are proud to announce 12 youth performers selected to perform at the North Beach Bandshell Stage and eight artists to perform on the Acoustic Garden Stage on Saturday, February 29, 2020 as part of the fourth annual Miami Beach Youth Music Festival. The festival will begin at 3 p.m. and culminate with a headline performance by the beloved South Florida band FOOM!
“Music has the power to instantly unite us, bringing together our community for the love of music is something I support. It’s encouraging to see the North Beach Bandshell evolve into a boutique music hub in North Beach,” shared Commissioner Ricky Arriola.
The Rhythm Foundation convened with several music industry professionals to review the over 30 performance submissions. Artists that made the final cut for the Bandshell stage include: All-Star Live Modern School Of Music, Arrowhead, Avalanche, Genre 2, Isabella Velasquez, Michi Sanz, Peach, Riot Girlz, Ripcord, Sunset 4, Visions and Young Musicians Unite Jazz Collective.
The Garden Stage will host the top eight folk acoustic and jazz talents. Artists selected include: Esteban, Isabella Rose Sky, Julia Grace, Malena Kingston, Mark Charnetski, Mihi Singer, Nina Marie and Rat’s Mouth Jazz Collective.
The festival will have a suggested entry donation of $5, which supports local youth music education. Attendees will also be able to explore their own talent as they visit the instrument petting zoo where they can receive a free 5-minute music lesson from Young Musicians Unite and musical instrument-making booth courtesy of The Bass Museum. Other activations at the event include an imagination playground hosted by the City of Miami Beach’s Parks & Recreation Department, food vendors and other family-friendly activities.
