Several events will take place on June 21st, but also on June 23rd and 28th.

For the opening act, Mo'booty, a psychedelic, surf-noir French-American band, will cast shades of punk over the slowly flooding Miami landscape. 

Tamboka, a musical group inspired by Gypsy and Latin musical traditions will then perform, inviting you to feel, love, live, and vibe with them through the tropical and earthy sounds impregnated in their hands and voices. In Wynwood Yard, be prepared to "free your mind, as your soul follows"!
