With year-round heat and a massive, gorgeous coastline, the cultural melting pot that is Florida has a lot to offer Floridians and visitors alike. One of the perks of the constantly mild weather down in the southeast part of my great country is a never-ending party atmosphere, and with that comes a ton of unforgettable Florida music festivals geared towards every style of music.
Whether you’re looking for world famous raves, epic camping festivals, nautical luxurious adventures, or just one day parties – this list has got you covered.
Here are 5 must-visit festivals in Florida:
This three days mega EDM festival rave needs no introduction and surely is one of the biggest and best events in the entire world. For over 20 years, ULTRA Music Festival has invited guests to downtown Miami for a weekend of top-notch electronic music. While 2019 will be the first year at their new location (offering a 2am curfew), I know ULTRA will be able to pull off an amazing experience on the island.
Tortuga Music Festival
“Rock the Ocean’s Tortuga Music Festival, annually held on the white sands of Ft. Lauderdale Beach, raises awareness and support of marine conservation. This beachside music festival features everything from rap to country with a mix of Americana roots added to the mix.”

“III Points started as an Art Music and Technology festival in Wynwood. It was created in 2013 by locals who felt the need for a better way to showcase local Miami talent alongside world-renowned artists. What began as a homegrown festival has now become a platform. Moreover, this festival showcases not only world-class talent but shines a spotlight on local emerging artists.
