You know who's in town right now? Kenny Chesney.

You know who we're gonna pounce on as soon as we see him? Kenny Chesney.

There's a slew of country music's finest in town for the Tortuga Music Festival this weekend. Kenny Chesney's just one of them, but with him comes Grace Potter, Sister Hazel, Lynyrd Skynrd, The Avett Brothers and so many more.

We here in Miami don't get much of a country vibe as opposed to our north-of-the-border counter-parts, but that doesn't mean we can't relish in fun times.

Grab a cold beer and hit the beach for one of South Florida's best dang'on country shows this side of the state line.


Sweet Tooth Soiree: F@#$ cavities, get candy.


Suenalo: A signature blend of funk, reggae, Latin jazz, hip-hop, and Afro-Caribbean rhythms.

Sander Van Doorn: Dutch EDM at its finest.


The Black's Annual Gala: Let's be real, who has the money to go to this stuff? We just like to watch the red carpet.

Artwalk: Art galleries, food trucks, and the Wynwood crowds!

Tortuga Music Festival: There is a secret society in Miami that only listens to KISS 99.9. Find them here.

Great Taste of the Grove: Rum, food, and more rum! For just $10 cover. Done!


Kayaking 101: We've actually been thinking of purchasing a kayak. We're in Miami, they'd be so handy!

Nonpoint: There was a point to this, though. So we guess it's like a Nonpoint point.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
