"We're over the moon to return to Miami Beach for our second year of North Beach Music Festival," shares NBMF co-founder, Gideon Plotnicki. "South Florida in general has been starved for an event like this for far too long, and we are more than happy to plant our flag as the home of jam bands, funk music, and beyond in the region. We are proud to feature a lineup with such a dynamic cross-section of what this corner of the live music community is all about. moe., Lettuce and Lotus are all trailblazers at the forefront of their respective genres—progressive rock, live electronic music, and future funk—and we are so excited for what should be three unforgettable nights with these champions of improvisational music."
This year, the festival will offer two- and three-day ticketing options, as well as three different levels of VIP and travel packages. Fans looking to attend the festival for two days can choose to attend either Friday and Saturday or Saturday and Sunday. All VIP packages include expedited entry through a VIP-dedicated entrance, an exclusive VIP merch item, and access to VIP viewing areas at both stages, as well as the Artist Lounge with a private bar, bathrooms, and balcony. Those desiring an elevated experience can choose VIP+, which adds a soundboard viewing area at the Miami Beach Bandshell, or the Platinum VIP Table experience, which also includes a private cabana with a dedicated server for up to 10 guests. As for travel packages, NBMF is thrilled to partner with the Seaside All Suites Hotel, located just a few blocks away from the Miami Beach Bandshell. Travel packages may be paired with either General Admission or VIP ticket types over three- or four-night stays, and include one or two beds (depending on the size of one's party) with a kitchenette and couch.
