When you hear "Miami" in conjunction with "music festival," you probably think of Ultra or Winter Music Conference, the EDM-fests that take place each year in March. But there's much more music on tap in the Magic City, too. In fact, the Miami Summer Music Festival is happening right now, and it runs through August 2.
Admittedly, this event is for a different crowd than the fist pumpers that flock to Ultra — but that's part of what we love about it. They say that summer is for locals in Miami, and this month-long affair certainly seems to cater to residents with, shall we say, a more refined musical bent. We've also heard that the concert series has drawn a number of tourists to town, which is great news in what is typically a slow off-season.
If you haven't heard of the Miami Summer Music Festival, you can be forgiven since it only started last year. This year's festival actually began on July 5th, but you still have time to catch some top-notch chamber music and opera performances.

This week, two of our country's most well-known festivals, Coachella and Lollapalooza, have officially banned selfie sticks. The festivals said that in addition to being an "audience-wide nuisance," the sticks are viewed as "encouraging the unauthorized recording of the festival’s performances."
