Poplife are the premier music tastemakers of Miami. Now they’re venturing out into the land of music festivals. The FM Festival lands on our shores this Saturday and Sunday at the North Beach Bandshell. It’s exactly what it sounds like–food and music galore. FM will feature top-notch local restaurants like Ariete and Eating House alongside the headliners–indietronica legends Hot Chip and Bomba Estereo, the latest band buzzing out of Colombia.
True to Miami form, the food and beverages are no afterthought at FM. Miami’s go-to bars like Better Days and Gramps will be on-site keeping the booze flowing while Coyo and Gio’s Chicken will be on deck with munchies to soak it up. New-kid-on-the-block Employees Only, hailing from sister city NYC, is diving right into 305 by setting up shop (way to go!)
Of course, Poplife shines best when booking musical acts. Ever since I could remember, and before the Design District was all glass and Prada, Poplife was hosting underground dance parties for Miami’s wallflowers. Now they’re all grown up! With different iterations and locations through the years the two-day FM festival may be their crowning jewel.
We will explore, eat, drink, dance and report back.
