The GroundUP Music Festival is artist-centric and attendee-focused. The event is intimate and immersive, with only about 1800 tickets available per day. With two performance stages but no overlapping sets, masterclasses/artist talks in the Grove and on the beach, and spectacular digs in the premium VIP & Artists’ Skylounge, the festival has been designed as an optimal experience for both artist and audience. With Snarky Puppy playing every day and a lineup of international superstars and surprises, it is really all about the music. In addition to the announced bands, there will be unique collaborations and mash-ups curated by the artists themselves.Take a dip in the pools at our Partner Hotels, grab a cool drink from the pool bar, then open the gate and enter the Beach Trail which leads directly to the Concert Bandshell - the official home of the GroundUp Music Festival, located 20 yards from the beach. The Miami Beach Trail is a local treasure that changes shape and size as it connects South Beach to North Beach and all points in between.
