Ultra Music Festival takes over Bayfront Park; Panthers home for playoff push


This is your one-stop shop for all the weekend's happenings, including concerts, movies and sporting events throughout South Florida.


It's that time again. The 20th edition of Ultra Music Festival sounds off at Bayfront Park beginning Friday. It's the first of a three-day long electronic music festival with Biscayne Bay as its backdrop.


Of course, expect plenty of traffic and crowds in downtown Miami, so if you aren't attending, maybe you should stay away. Police are also promising plenty of security to keep folks safe.

If electronic music isn't your thing, head on over to the Magic City Casino to hear Chicago frontman Peter Cetera. Expect to hear "Glory of Love" (you know, the song from "The Karate Kid Part II") and some familiar Chicago favorites when he takes the stage at 6 p.m. Saturday.

For all those '90s alternative lovers out there, Bush will be rocking the Fillmore Miami Beach at Jackie Gleason Theater on Saturday evening. These Brits made a name for themselves with the release of their debut album "Sixteen Stone" in 1994. They're sure to be revisiting hits "Comedown" and "Glycerine" when they take the stage at 8 p.m.


Chrissy Hines and the Pretenders will perform at the same venue Sunday at 8 p.m. The Pretenders made it big with their 1984 album "Learning to Crawl," which featured such songs as "Middle of the Road" and "Back on the Chain Gang."


Several new movies are opening Friday, but none may be bigger than "Pacific Rim Uprising," the sequel to 2013's "Pacific Rim."

Watch the trailer here:

Claire Foy stars in (recently unretired) director Steven Soderbergh's "Unsane." This suspense thriller is the first major movie to be shot entirely on an iPhone.

Watch the trailer here:

"Sherlock Gnomes" is a movie for the whole family. Unless you're a kid, you probably didn't even know this was a sequel to 2011's "Gnomeo & Juliet." James McAvoy, Emily Blunt and Johnny Depp once again lend their voices to the animated film.

First pitch on Friday and Saturday is 7 p.m. Sunday's first pitch is 1 p.m.

The Panthers are also vying for a playoff spot. Florida stays home Saturday to take on the Arizona Coyotes at 7 p.m.
