Well, we’ve survived hurricane season. And as the bulk of America bundles up for Old Man Winter, the only flurry that we’re likely to get comes in the form of totally rad concerts. To flaunt our warmth that much more, the best shows in Miami this winter span a hearty dose of outdoor fests, with a sprinkle of mega arena spectacles and intimate gigs. These are the 14 concerts you’ll want to snag tickets to, pronto.

The top concerts this winter

  • Things to do

It’s a trust fall, babyyyyy! A trust fall babyyyyy! You’ve heard Pink’s latest jam on the radio, and now you can hear the total badass belt it out live in concert, either in Miami at Kaseya Center or Sunrise at FLA Live Arena. As a bonus, the always vivacious and totally fun Grouplove will open. Not ringing a bell? Take a listen to “Tongue Tied,” “Ways to Go” and “Deleter” and you’ll be grooving in no time.

  • Music

Sure, we see Travis Scott pop up at the likes of E11EVEN, LIV and Rolling Loud. But, it’s not every day you get to catch the Houston-bred rap icon on a big ole tour of his own. He’ll be at Kaseya Center on November 27 as part of his Utopia-Circus Maximus tour, inspired by the album he dropped in July.

In recent years, it's been called Audacy Music Festival. Back in the day, it was known as Riptide Music Festival. Now, the names have merged and, regardless, it's going to be one hell of a rockin' weekend on Fort Lauderdale Beach over the first weekend in December with headliners The Black Keys and Jelly Roll.

  • Music

Art Basel is rolling into Miami December 8 through 10, with events leading up to it. LIV is going to be absolutely lit that week kicking off with a performance by Florida-based electronic duo Sofi Tukker. Jam to their hits “Best Friend,” “Purple Hat” and “Sun Came Up” pre-show. Also on the LIV slate that week are Tiesto (December 7) and John Summit (December 8).

Double the Bruno Mars goodness, y’all. The multi-genre vocal master will jam at Hard Rock Live in Hollywood for two nights in early December. From OG hits like “Just the Way You Are” to jams from his latest LP “24K Magic,” all the tunes will certainly get that rump moving.

2023 marks 30 glorious years that Jhayco has graced God’s green Earth. And we are super-grateful for the Puerto Rican rapper’s hits spanning his “Dakiti” collab with Bad Bunny to the chart-topping “Holanda.” They’ll be on full display come December at Kaseya Center.

A Pembroke Pines park is where it’s going down. “Legends and Icons” is in this festival’s name and, my goodness, it lives up to that with some of the best in the hip-hop, R&B and rap biz. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of hip-hop, headliners include Trey Songz, Nelly, Ja Rule, Dru Hill, Ashanti and many more.

Dios mío! It’s going to be a total Latin fiesta, spanning reggaeton to pop to hip-hop goodness come December 15. For MiamiBash, jams gracing the arena’s waves will span Brazilian delights from Anitta, beats from Puerto Rican reggaeton duo Zion & Lennox and smashes from Wisin (half of the Wisin y Yandel legendary duo).

If you’re not in the holiday spirit nine days before Christmas, perhaps this holiday cheer-filled shindig will do the trick? Sponsored by local Y100, this year’s Jingle Ball spans the
musical spectrum from the mysterious yet infectious Marshmello to pop-rock trio of brothers AJR to our state’s namesake rapper Flo Rida.

Okay, so perhaps you missed Playboi Carti headlining Rolling Loud. Not to
make you feel even worse about it, but... it was amazing. Don’t have regrets again and
catch the Atlanta hip-hop star – who has a new album coming in ’24 – at Kaseya Center
in late January.
