The streets of Miami’s art district will be buzzing with a myriad of activities for both locals and tourists at the Wynwood Life Street Festival. The annual two-day festival taking place on April 20–22, 2018, will take over the neighborhood with pop-up galleries, fashion runway shows, food trucks, and over 20 bands and DJs.

Now in its 5th year, the street festival will divide and conquer the vicinity with multiple setups in the area where visitors can indulge in a plethora of activities. This year, the festival introduces its 22nd Lane Art Gallery, which will incorporate three large outdoor exhibits exposing works by some of the biggest names in Miami. One tent will feature Wynwood’s own middle school students decorating their space, while another tent will be an interactive free-for-all where attendees can create their own art to showcase for all to see.

Fashionistas can take a front-row seat at the style lounge—Bloomie’s Style Lounge & Runways. The fashion villa will hold designer runway shows and collaborations by names such as FENTY Puma x Rihanna, Adidas by Stella McCartney, The Kooples, and many more. Aside from shows, the lounge will also host beauty stations and cocktails with influencers; it’s where attendees can chat with Miami bloggers. In the mood for a workout? There will also be a section on-site for free yoga and Zumba classes presented by Equinox.

Musical performances at the Live Music Stage will take place all day and night and will feature hometown bands gone big and local favorites. The lineup will include reggae vibes from Kapital Stone and King Charlz, soulful sounds from Sheena O. Murray, hip-hop bands directed by label FDFSOUND, and an all-female DJ collective with sets by Bonnie Beats, PeeWee, and Breedaddy.

There will also be plenty of food at the festival

Guests can also experiment with tasty creations of different cuisines at the Wynwood Kitchen Lab. It will host cooking lessons by budding chefs in the industry, giving audiences a glance at creative recipes to write down and whip up at home. However, if you’re craving something in particular, the seemingly endless parade of food trucks on-site will have enough variety to settle any palate. From pizza to noodles to churrasco and tacos, there will be food truck vendors to cater to every meal craving.

Make sure not to leave the premises before browsing through the Thrifter Market. Vendors will be selling collectibles, jewelry, and other artisanal pieces for shoppers to take home.

The event runs from Friday, April 20th from 5 pm–3 am; Saturday, April 21st from 12 pm–3 am; and Sunday, April 22nd from 12 pm–10 pm. The first 500 guests to arrive will receive a free welcome drink. (Guests must be 21 years of age or older to consume alcohol.)

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
