Wynwood Fest; the cultural street festival
The inaugural event expects 20,000 people to fill the streets throughout the weekend event, over 100 vendors will be among the art and music. Dozens of restaurants in the Wynwood area will be featured. Trek6, the celebrated artist who has become synonymous with the area one wall at a time, will commemorate the festival by designing and painting the inaugural poster and wall.
“The walls of Wynwood are intrinsic to this community, which is why we wanted to build a wall specifically for Trek6 to paint. That finished wall will be taken apart, brick by brick, and the first 350 posters will come with one of the numbered bricks from that one-of-a-kind work of art,” said Tony Albelo, festival organizer.
The idea behind this festival stemmed from the need to give local artists, craftsmen and designers the representation that they deserved by giving them a platform to showcase their creations.
Top area vendors and artists, many of whom have been in some of Miami’s most respected graffiti crews, have signed up to be a part of this event, which will offer art, crafts, jewelry, fashion and food. Kicking off the musical line-up on Friday night will be Congolese-Belgian hip-hop phenom Baloji, who was brought to Miami and the Festival by MDC Live Arts. Other bands and DJs are scheduled to perform from the one of two stages throughout the weekend. Several Miami stylists and bloggers will showcase “festival fashion” during the Saturday night fashion show, and Wynwood area restaurants will be on hand to sell their fare throughout the entire weekend.
