Kerrang. Uhntz-uhntz. Ba-boom. Pop-a-da-da. Tiki-tiki.

We live in a city where the rock, punk, house, techno, EDM, reggae, rap, bass, and Top 40 never stop. There are secret club shows. Pyrotechnic pop tours. Quiet nights at the theater. Sweaty trips to the pit. And massive music festivals that absolutely overrun everything.

There's no denying the 305 is a music mecca. And these were Miami's ten best concerts of 2014.

Lauryn Hill and Stephen, Damian, and Julian Marley - Nine Mile Music Festival 2014

The Review: "Ms. Lauryn Hill, the one-time Fugee, one-time costar of Whoopi Goldberg in Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit, five-time Grammy winner, and mother of five children with another of Bob's sons, Rohan Marley, reminded us that even though she might not ever record another album, her live performances are hurricane-level forces of nature." -- David Rolland

Ultra Music Festival 2014

The Review: "Another year, another Ultra Music Festival. We here at Crossfade always make the annual pilgrimage to Ultra land. And from one UMF to the next, there is a lot of stuff that's not-so-shockingly new. Or as Deadmau5 might screech: "It's the same fucking thing every year!" Inevitably, though, there's also a lot of stuff that make the shenanigans worth it." -- S. Pajot
