[UPDATE 9/28/22]: North Beach Music Festival has revealed the daily schedule for 2022 and announced that Seattle saxophonist Skerik will serve as artist-at-large.
“With fans traveling from all over the country to attend North Beach Music Festival, we wanted to give all of the information that we could, as early as we could, to show fans who are thinking of coming to Miami Beach what’s in store for our second year,” said festival co-founder Gideon Plotnicki.
“This year’s schedule has been carefully crafted to provide fans with a non-stop musical experience they won’t soon forget. With no overlapping sets at NBMF this year, fans can be assured that they can witness each moment of music. That’s important to us, as we strive to create really special moments that our attendees can experience together.”
The festival will kick off on Friday, December 9th with one-hour sets by Lemon City Trio (4:45 p.m.) and Brandon “Taz” Niederauer (6:15 p.m.) and two sets of moe. (7:45–11 p.m.). All of Friday’s sets will take place on the Bandshell Stage. Capacity and tickets will be limited.
Then on Saturday, Shira Elias will get the party started on the Park Stage at 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday’s performances will be staggered across the two stages, so festival-goers don’t have to miss any of the music. After Shira, fans can mosey over to Keller Williams on the Bandshell Stage at 3 p.m., followed by Melt (4 p.m.), Dopapod (5 p.m.), Doom Flamingo (6:15 p.m.), and Allman Brothers Band tribute act Trouble No More (7:30 p.m.). Lotus will close out Saturday night with a two-hour set on the Park Stage beginning at 9 p.m.
Finally, on Sunday, Afrobeta (1:15 p.m.) and Guavatron (2:15 p.m.) will kick things on the Bandshell and Park Stage, respectively. Cool Cool Cool (3:15 p.m.), the new group formed by former Turkuaz members, and Neighbor (4:15 p.m.) will play afternoon sets, kicking off a night of heavy funk featuring Antibalas (5:30 p.m.), Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe (6:45 p.m.), and Lettuce (8 p.m.).

[8/11/22]: North Beach Music Festival has revealed the daily lineups for its second year, set to take place December 9th–11th, 2022 at the Miami Beach Bandshell and adjacent Bandshell Park in Miami Beach, FL. The festival also announced single-day and two-day tickets will be available starting tomorrow, Friday, August 12th via the festival website.
NBMF will kick off on Friday, December 9th with performances by Miami-based band Lemon City Trio, Brandon “Taz” Niederaurer, and two sets from moe. Friday’s performances will take place exclusively at the Miami Beach Bandshell (not Bandshell Park). Consequently, capacity for Friday will be reduced and Friday-only single-day tickets will be limited.
On Saturday and Sunday, the festival will expand to include a second stage at Bandshell Park. Performances on Saturday will include Shira Elias, Melt, Doom Flamingo, Keller Williams, Trouble No More, Dopapod, and Lotus. Sets will not overlap, so attendees won’t have to miss any of their favorite artists.
The fest will finish strong on Sunday with a lineup featuring Miami-based duo Afrobeta, South Florida-based band Guavatron, and Cool Cool Cool, the new project featuring former Turkuaz members Craig Brodhead, Chris Brouwers, Michelangelo Carubba, Shira Elias, Sammi Garrett, and Greg Sanderson that’s set to make its debut at Brooklyn Comes Alive in September. Neighbor, Antibalas, and Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe will also perform on Sunday before Lettuce closes out the festival with a headlining set.
Late-night performers will be announced in September, and fans who purchase two- or three-day passes will receive exclusive first access to late-night pre-sale tickets.
Single-day tickets for North Beach Music Festival 2022 go on sale Friday, August 12th at noon ET. Two-day tickets are available now for either a Friday/Saturday or Saturday/Sunday combo.
