The Overtown Music & Arts Festival (RECAP)

Headliner Market Group, SEOPW & CRA and commissioner Keon Hardemon’s Overtown Music & Arts Festival is undoubtedly one of the most ambitious festivals of Miami’s tropical city. The lineup for its free 3rd annual incarnation brought music lovers from all across town to the historic neighborhood of Overtown to celebrate the beauty of culture and diversity in music–as one. Up-and-coming talent such as Ronnie VOP, J-Shin, Samara Bowden alongside bonafide legends like Jon B and Kelly Price took the stage by storm, delivering a fantastic show for the community.

Present with headlining artist including Ameriie, Estelle, Jeremih, Eric Benet, Carl Thomas and Tito Puente JR. performed for an audience that spread across NW 3rd Avenue between 8th and 11th Street.
Some of the attendees stood front and center, some in seats and others sprawled out around the business district.

The vibe was incredible as Miami and its sunny mid-90’s temps with high humidity made a perfect locale to catch one of the best festivals of the summer in Dade County. The Overtown Music and Arts Festival delivered a stellar day of beautiful music and equally beautiful people.

About Catiana Saillant

As a child, I've always loved music. From different genres such as Hip-Hop, R&B and Pop. Music allows you to be creative and express yourself the way that you please to. I've sought music to be a place where you can be YOU. You can dance, cry, laugh and do all kinds of crazy things to music. That is what makes me so passionate about what I do! My ultimate goal is to build a mainstream media platform that represents and supports culture such as paintings, music, film and provide empowering media coverage to my viewers.
