Miami Beach, FLA. – Jam band fans packed the North Beach Bandshell this weekend for the inaugural North Beach Music Festival.

Some fans traveled from as far away as Massachusetts and New York to rock out to smoking sets from The Motet, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Aqueous and Spafford; whose members also wrapped up Saturday night with an all-star jam!

There was plenty of stadium-type fare for hungry fans in between sets. Cosmic Charlie’s Grateful Grill brought a food truck all the way down from South Carolina! Eleventh Street Pizza was dishing out hot slices and Vegan Demon provided vegetarian and fully vegan alternatives.

The organizers created a linear flow for the festival; with the Bandshell serving as the main stage, with surrounding VIP sections and lounges. Then, fans could stroll south to the Park stage which allowed for a much more intimate experience. But there wasn’t a bad seat in the house-not that anyone was sitting down!

It was weekend of perfect weather to be outside enjoying live music on Miami Beach! Don’t miss this music festival next year!
