“After an incredible first year of the GroundUP Music Festival — dubbed by some as the Art Basel of Music — where attendees traveled to Miami Beach for the festival from 37 states and 34 countries, our goal is to continue to create a transformative annual event for South Florida and worldwide audiences,” said Miami Beach native and GroundUP Music CEO Paul Lehr. Added Snarky Puppy bandleader and GroundUP Music founder Michael League, “our focus is not to expand, but to build the most ideal experience for both artist and audience while continuing even farther down the road of musical diversity in our programming.” Two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and 2017 GroundUP Music Festival performer David Crosby urged, “I don’t think you’ll get a better shot at hearing real music than at this festival. It will knock your socks off.”
