The #WynwoodLife street festival attracted close to 18,000 people to Wynwood’s 6thAvenue over 3 days last weekend, April 25th – 27th.
“Lots of cool people. Lots of great vibe. Art was created, showed and sold. Music was danced to and fashion was strutted. We were proud to have Trek6 involved as our first poster artists. Wynwood Life is here to stay, and we hope to see everyone back next year,” said Tony Albelo, Wynwood Life organizer.
In the spirit of showcasing local talent, the festival featured Miami style bloggers, who turned heads during their own fashion show hosted by Kelly Saks. On Saturday night, the Peroni Art & Fashion Stage featured a bathing suit fashion show hosted by Annie Vazquez. Sunday night’s show was put on by Style Mafia, Jane Rose and Miami fashion blogger Maya King.
People came from all over South Florida to see the 11 live art displays curated by WynwoodMap.com, which featured graffiti artists including Gons One w/ SSK, Luis Berros, Diana Contreras and Luis Valle. What they got was all 11 plus a bonus live art display from DeepInPaint body painter, Shannon De Freitas. Baloji, the Congolese-Belgium hip hop artists, who performed on Friday night, was a total hit, with thousands of new fans jamming to his contagious rhythm. It was standing room only on Saturday night with Problem Kids rocking the house, and on Sunday, Suénalo brought their fan base with their eclectic hip hop, Spanish infused vibe to the stage.
To close the festival, Wynwood Life had a music and art mashup that featured DJ Mr. Pauer, Miami’s Latin Grammy® nominated artist/producer, on stage while graffiti artist Hec One Love painted in front of the stage to the beat of his music. Hec One Love is well known for collaborating with Trek6 on the mural “Lovism”. Meanwhile over at the Peroni Art & Fashion stage, an impromptu collaborative painting took place between Kazilla and Coinslot, making this festival an eye-catching experience.
