The Transatlantic Festival returns with two days of world music

This weekend North Beach is getting a dose of musical restoration as it preps for The Rhythm Foundation’s 14th annual TransAtlantic Music Festival at the North Beach Bandshell.


The fest will take place on Friday and Saturday beginning at six in the evening and feature headlining indie folk band Beirut with their Florida debut, Mexican sextet Troker and local Miami act Afro-Haitian Kazoots. 


On Saturday eight-member collective EMEFE will take to the stage with follow-up acts by Psychic Mirrors and Chantil Dukart.


Local eateries Hot Satellite Pizza and The Plant MIA will be there to satisfy any hunger pains, and Crown Concepts will be running a full bar, giving guests a discount for using the sustainable and plastic free souvenir metal cups for sale to create a green festival atmosphere. 


Aside from bringing the programming to the Bandshell, The Rhythm Foundation is now managing the venue and is working to keep the event creative and exciting with the support of The Knight Foundation and other sponsors.


This year the concert series is expanding its flavor to the Bandshell’s neighboring areas including a visual arts hub with an LED marquee adjacent to the Bandshell Park, video screenings on the North Beach trolley, a sunset raga on the Beatles Mandala, and after parties at surrounding bars and clubs.
