Arts Festival announces this year's music lineup

Regional headliners and local acts will be on the main stage throughout the weekend. The Miami New Times will be programming the three days of live entertainment during this year’s 52nd annual event.
Headlining the list of eclectic groups include the self-described one-man “Island-infused, Drum 'n' Bass, Gospel-Ninja-Soul” band Zach Deputy, with special guest and Miami natives JUke. Together, these two acts will officially conclude the first day of the Arts Festival with a major open field dance party for fans of fusion R&B, soul, jam, Caribbean and electronica music.
Also joining the weekend’s headlines will be award-winning, psychedelic southern rock band Bright Light Social Hour on Sunday evening. With their incendiary live performances and innovative vision of rock and roll, Bright Light Social Hour has been a favorite on the national touring rotation, including a sweep of the six awards presented by the SXSW 2011 Austin Music Awards, including Band of the Year, Album of the Year, and Song of the Year. The group will be releasing their second full-length album this year.
Finally, bringing the Arts Festival to a close on Monday will be the wildly unapologetic and kazoo-wielding Beebs & Her Honeymakers. The high energy performance is sure to leave a sweet taste for all visitors over the weekend.
In addition to the above headlining acts, the complete CGAF Main Stage lineup can be found at the festival's webpage: cgaf.com/music.php
“The Grove festival is gonna rock this year,” says Miami New Times editor Chuck Strouse. "It's just the lineup and exactly the location to get people off their feet."
More than 360 of North America’s most talented and creative artists will be featured as usual at the CGAF along with lots of food and of course music.
“We are very excited about this year's partnership [with the New Times] and what it will mean for the future of our Arts Festival,” said Coconut Grove Arts Festival President Monty Trainer. “We remain committed to our mission of celebrating the arts by recognizing local artists and increasing access to national talents – including performing arts – and we guarantee its will be a very lively celebration!”
