The DWNTWN Miami Concert Series is every second Friday of the month (except March and September). The series features a free concert open to the public at Bayfront Park’s Tina Hills Pavilion from October through April, and at the Gusman Center for the Performing Arts from May through August. This event provides residents a way to beat the heat while still having fun. Downtown residents come mingle and enjoy great music in the heart of downtown Miami.

Join the Miami Downtown Development Authority Friday, May 11th as it kicks off its inaugural summer season at the Olympia Theatre at the Gusman Center for the Performing Arts with Performances by Chris Cauley & City of God! As always, food and drinks are available. The doors open at 7:00pm.

Chris Cauley gets the show started right, fresh from his stint on Season 2 of NBC’s The Voice as a member of Team Adam, with a little soul from the ATL.
City of God kicks it up a notch by combining elements of funk, dance and hip hop with a unique style that’s all their own. City of God graced the DWNTWN Miami Concert Series stage back in season 3 and since then they have been sharing the stage with such artists as Usher, Shaggy, Ne-Yo, Sean Paul, The Jonas Brothers, Katy Perry, Flo Rida and more.
