It’s February, which means we have no shortage of things to do in Miami this month. The city is in peak season, and that’s good and bad news. With plenty of snowbirds in town escaping the north, it means the best restaurants in Miami may be slammed and it’ll take a little longer to grab a drink at the best bars in Miami too. But at least we’ve got some sweet concerts (hello III Points), festivals (start saving room for SBWFF) and more to look forward to.

Wigwood

Miami's explosive queer festival takes to the sea in 2019. Yup—Wigwood has rented a 300-person boat to sail around Biscayne Bay for the first day of its three-day celebration. If you get left on dry land for that, don’t fret. The next two days see parties at Gramps and Broken Shaker with the all-stars of Miami’s drag scene.

Ballyhoo Super Bowl Beach Party

Meet the most Miami Super Bowl party. Ballyhoo Media is throwing a watch party at Virginia Key Beach Park where guests can watch along on one of their floating 48-foot screens. You can watch from the sand or swim right up to the screen. Over on dry land, the party will have a DJ, food, drinks and games for folks to enjoy before kickoff.

This jazzy, jam fest brings some seriously funky (and talented) acts to the North Beach Bandshell. The jazz/funk band Snarky Puppy headlines each night of the week alongside bands like David Crosby and the Lighthouse Band, Tank & the Bangas (stop what you’re doing and watch their Tiny Desk concert), Andrew Bird and more. In addition to the concert, GroundUp also offers interactive workshops with some of the bands on the lineup.

Duran Duran

Bring back that perm and get ready to bounce around as Duran Duran plays the hits in Miami Beach. The iconic pop act rehash the hits you no doubt remember (we‘ll be screaming along to “Hungry Like the Wolf”) and a few you probably forgot.

Fresh out of a stint in jail that just about everyone agreed was severely unjust, Meek is back with a new album and tour. The aptly titled Motivation Tour is here to show the Philly rapper‘s fans that it‘s going to take more than a predatory criminal justice system to silence him.

Celebrity chefs and hungry Miamians take to the sands of South Beach for Miami’s biggest and most famous food festival. Seriously, this thing is huge. There are burger battles and tasting villages and more calories than you’ll know what to do with. Plus, Guy Fieri! Wash it all down with wine, of course.
