Ever since the 6th century BCE, music festivals have been in effect. The first one was part of the Pythian Games in ancient Greece. Today, music festivals are held all over the world and some of the best are in the United States. Unfortunately, our generation missed out on Woodstock but below I’ve listed (in chronological order) the music festivals that you can attend in your own backyard of Florida that hopefully will give you the experience of a lifetime.
*While music festivals are typically held outdoors, recently a new trend of cruise ship festivals has emerged. Since these ships take off from the Port of Miami, I consider that a Floridian based event.
1. Holy Ship: 2/10-2/13/2016
Departs from Miami, Ticket price: $599-1549
While the title gives off a gospel vibe, this ship is filled with electronic dance music and DJ’s. The event is put together by cloud 9 adventures, a company run out of Boca Raton! Travelers get to enjoy the music and get to explore the Bahamas
