All acts must be able to perform a 10-minute set in any musical genre. At least one band member needs to be a resident of Miami-Dade County and the average age of the band needs to be 18 years old.

The City of Miami Beach Youth Music Festival has surpassed anything I could’ve imagined when I started it six years ago. Our local artists and young rockers continue to come together to create a really fun community event, and their musical impact is being felt not just here at home but around the world through the digital expansion that was created out of necessity during the pandemic. The opportunity for these young people to perform in front of an audience of thousands on a big professional stage is crucial training for them, and a heck of a lot of fun for the rest of us. - John Star Aleman - Miami Beach Youth Music Festival Founder
