Perhaps the third time's the charm?
When the Identity Festival set out on its inaugural summer tour across the United States last year, Miami was left out after the threat of a hurricane that never hit. Organizers tried to reschedule the show at a later date. But it proved too difficult to accomplish.
That left us wondering if ID Fest would be willing to give Miami another shot this summer, considering that the same thing could very well happen again. Thankfully, though, it seems organizers are willing to risk another 'cane, announcing the festival's tour schedule including a Miami date at the Klipsch Amphitheater at Bayfront Park on August 4.
Acts set to appear in Eric Prydz, Wolfgang Gartner, Excision, Madeon, Porter Robinson, Nero (DJ set), Paul Van Dyk, Arty, Doctor P, Noisia, Showtek, and more that will be announced as dates near. Of course, this being a summer-long festival, some acts may not appear at every stop.
Tickets are already on sale for $25 at livenation.com.
