Meet the Miami Acts: New Times Music Showcase at Coconut Grove Arts Festival 2015

With 52 years of experience, the Coconut Grove Arts Festival need hardly prove itself as a credible destination for artists, patrons, crafters, or appreciators. Tradition shows it's a great place for families and friends to congregate and glimpse the colorful works and offerings of Miami's many creatives.

But what about the music scene? Do the party people know they can hit up the CGAF to get their fix?

This year especially, the arts fair will show off its Miami pride by putting more than ten fantastic local bands onstage and under the spotlight in the New Times Music Showcase at the Coconut Grove Arts Festival. Here's a primer to get you better acquainted with the sounds in store.
