The weekend is finally here, Miami. And, as always, the Magic City offers plenty to keep you entertained. Ultra brings its dizzying thump-thump to town starting on Friday, but if EDM isn't your thing, then there's classical music, literary festivals, modern dance and more.
- Ultra Music Festival at Bayfront Park: Three stages and seven days of EDM starts today.
- Odiesa at Dance Now Miami: The narrative dance tells the physical, spiritual, and emotional journey of 23 Jews fleeing persecution in 1654 Recife, Brazil, and their ultimate settlement in New Amsterdam.
- CreativeMornings at Canvas: A free monthly breakfast lecture series for creative types that includes a 20-minute talk, fresh brew, and breakfast bites provided by Mad Chiller.
