Watch out for international sensations like 21 Savage, Cardi B, and Kid Cudi, as they take the stage by storm and cement your obsession with the genre for decades to come.

Ultra Music Festival (Miami) – March

Delve deeper into the underground music scene while digging through wonderfully odd items on show at the pop-up flea market, so as to truly bask in the air of lovely, unfiltered weirdness surrounding this music festival. Think you’ve outgrown your indie pop and punk rock phase? Well, think again because by offering up chilling performances by musical powerhouses like The Bronx, Jawbox, and Less Than Jake, The Fest will have you falling in love with the genre all over again.

Gasparilla Music Festival (Tampa) – March

For a more laid-back and cozier vibe, head over to Tampa this spring break so you can indulge in the absolute treat that is Gasparilla Music Festival. Fueled by a desire to foster a sense of fellow-feeling amongst attendees through the uniquely intimate experience of sharing a day-full of live music, this festival really puts in a lot of effort into curating a line-up that is as diverse as it is inviting. Enjoy a selection of class-acts of both local and international acclaim, such as Toro Y Moi, The Pharcyde, and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, while you soak up the sun.

III Points (Miami) – February

Smackdab in the middle of the city’s burgeoning arts district you’ll find III Points – a festival dedicated to celebrating every creative’s favorite trio: art, music, and technology. Committed to redefining the experience of listening to music, this cutting-edge festival features a multitude of exhibits ranging from panelists and educational lectures to interactive demonstrations and live performances.
