Virginia Key Beach Park, 4020 Virginia Beach Drive Key Biscayne, FL
Twenty five ago, upstate New York’s “Cajun, rock, folk, reggae, and country” crew invited a bunch of friends, fans, and musicians to Ithaca for the inaugural Finger Lakes Grassroots Festival. A quarter-century later, the fest has grown from a one-day concert in the Empire State to a four-day shindig, giving birth to North Carolina’s Shakori Hills Grassroots and the 305’s own Virginia Key Grassroots. Tunes from Donna the Buffalo themselves, Brooklyn’s Rubblebucket, Cuba’s Danay Suarez, and some of the Magic City’s finest are the highlight of the 96-hour get down. But this year’s mega fest will also feature yoga, a Culture Camp with dance and cooking workshops, a Kid’s Village (because it’s never too soon to start teaching our future generation the importance of going green), a sustainability expo, an instrument contest, a beer garden and vinyl lounge, and the Grassroots World Café. Long live the ‘Roots. Price: $25-$100/$40-$120
