Rockers Movement Annual Miami Reggae Festival Returns with Their Vibe, Spirit and Celebration of Oneness — Make Way for the Positive Day as it shines during Winter Music Conference with “One Love” Celebration of Live Performances, Art and Food for Charity.

Miami Reggae Festival offers up an evening of peace, love & unity on Friday March 15th, under the stars at North Beach Bandshell, in Miami Beach, Florida. Patrons will come together to donate food to the less fortunate as part of the admission to the annual festival.

Miami, FL. January 15, 2019 Miami Reggae Festival fuses food, arts and reggae to raise awareness about extreme poverty during the Winter Music Conference for a powerful night of reverence, livity, peace and unity – expanding consciousness through music, food and charity.

Reggae music, a music now recognized as world heritage music by UNESCO (The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) brings together people from all walks of life in the spirit of “One Love” for an evening of sharing in culture and healing.

Miami Reggae Festival expresses the hopes and dreams of a world in which what people have in common is far greater than that which divides. Through the Festival, attendees live not by looking at each other but by looking together in the same direction. Miami Reggae Festival unifies Miami’s diverse community to aid Dade County residents living in poverty. Music has always had the power to unite and inspire humanitarianism. “The Miami Reggae Festival takes it to the top, offering the highest quality of performance, socio-political ambience and service to community available anywhere. Past festivals has featured the likes of: Stephen and Damian Marley, Bunny Wailer, Steel Pulse, Toots & The Maytals, Cultura Profética, Morgan Heritage, Midnite, Gondwana, Natiruts, Tiken Jah Fakoly and Luciano to name a few.

This year Miami Reggae Festival is headlined by the legendary Roots band from St. Croix Akae Beka (formerly Midnite), Akae Beka is the current manifestation of an evolving consciousness. As it is written in The Word, much like the archangel Michael who was responsible for the truths pertaining to the secrets of creation, so does lead singer Vaughn Benjamin today accept his role in a parallel time of rampant deception and broken taboos in the arenas of world leadership. Always rooted firmly in the teachings of His Imperial Majesty, Emperor Haile Selassie I, he says: “my personal evolution and reaffirmed purpose is manifested in this newly declared name from the Book of Enoch: Akae Beka, a sacred oath described therein, the Akae, the Beka, one and the same.”

Also performing from Jamaica; Jah9 and the Dub Treatment, deeply mystical, Jah9 has emerged from a chrysalis of poetry, dub and spirit to become a powerful femiNINE energy within a universal grassroots movement of consciousness. Inspired by the open spaces in the instrumental dub of 1970’s Jamaican roots music, Jah9 sings with a voice that belies the dimensions of her physical body, from a soul much older than its current vessel; “reminiscent of that darkly operatic wailer for truth & justice, Nina Simone.” Her philosophy–profoundly spiritual, and her style–Jazz on Dub.

Miami based Rhythm Flow, zen trance dub will pulse through the crowd, raising the vibration as Colombian Zurich Based DJ Nurstacris maintains the positive vibes throughout the night. Continuing the tradition of collecting non-perishable food items to distribute to those in need, the Miami Reggae Festival partners with Miami charity Hecho en Casa, Visual art displayed echoes sentiments felt throughout the human experience and plant-based and cruelty-free dishes complement the compassionate atmosphere.

Founder, Alfonso D’Niscio Brooks, says: ”Rockers Movement started with an obligation to do something good, and to affect people positively. The ways in which people can have a positive effect are limitless. By working together people transform communities, the environment and lives, being a part of the how and why.”

Miami Reggae Festival has also joined the rally to raise awareness about the positive impact and benefits of the gift cannabis, the plant for the mind, body and spirit. Music and herb just go together. In the spirit of unity Miami Reggae Festival producers found it necessary to be a part of this rally. In the challenging economic climate today, people know now more than ever the need for a positive vibration. Brother Bob Marley said: “Herb is the healing of the nation”. So come and join in a day of good vibes and let’s get together and feel alright, remember together WE ARE ROCKERS!

Miami Reggae Festival takes place on Friday, March 15, 2019 from 5-11pm at the North Beach Bandshell, 7275 Collins Ave. Miami Beach, FL 33141.

Tickets are $22 in advance plus two non-perishable food items for entry.

Rodriguez has helped the Florida Renaissance Festival set the standard for all festivals of this nature by going “beyond Renaissance.” Booking acts sprawling from the Orient to Africa, Rodriguez has brought the Festival to new heights, continuously incorporating new experiences.

Dedicated to adventurers across the centuries, board your favorite form of fantastical transportation, be it a submarine or steam powered hot air balloon. Break out those top hats, goggles, corsets, petticoats, compass bracers, and monocles and join in on a “Steampunkin'” good time. Open on President’s Day, Monday February 18th!

* Vikings and Barbarians – February 23rd and 24th
Coming from the harsh wastelands of the North, only the strongest and most courageous warriors will survive through this weekend.

Onward to Valhalla!

* Bodacious Bodices & Wenches – March 2nd and 3rd
Wenches Weekend celebrates the power of women from Renaissance times. Hourglass curves and hearty attitudes were the name of the game when it meant going up against male counterparts.

Or at least helping them settle some Dueling Disagreements! Adventure onward!

* FAN FAVORITE – Kamikaze Fireflies
Comedy wrapped in lunacy wrapped in foolishness. This show is a combination of strength, physical agility and amazingly well-crafted routines, balancing classical theatrical training with disciplined circus physicality. It is a constantly changing series of routines, patter, physical impossibilities, unbelievable situations and audience interactions. They are difficult to describe and impossible to forget.

* NEW – Music the Gathering
Music The Gathering has a vast repertoire of original arrangements across multiple genres, from traditional Celtic to contemporary world and original parodies. In addition to mixed vocal harmonization, all three musicians play various folk and classical string, woodwind, and percussion instruments, which allows them to take familiar traditional songs and arrange them in unique ways. All members are actors with a strong background in comedy and improvisation, and they take pride in performing with all the energy and passion they can muster.

* NEW – The Jackdaws
The Jackdaws deliver original, contemporary, and traditional Irish Rock to audiences across the land. This trailblazing trio will excite and have you coming back for more with their driving melodies and relentlessly aggressive lyrics. More Irish than a drunken roar, and a damned sight messier.

* NEW – Lady Ophelia’s Dance Party & Maypole Dance
Lady Ophelia invites you to flirt… the old-fashioned way as she is well versed and most skilled in all the current dances and royal entertainments. However, don’t forget to join in on the wonderful opportunity of going round the Maypole as you decorate the pole in spring colors. Watch, dance, and frolic as you become entwined in the history, the joy and the traditions of court and country dance.

* FAN FAVORITE – DeBracy Productions – Joust
Come witness the heart-pounding medieval live-action stunt show. DeBracy Productions combines trick riding, vaulting, chariot racing, death defying stunts, full contact jousting and a gladiator style spectacle. Experience a spectacle where the winner takes all, princess, kingdom, and treasure, but is it all worth it!?

ArtFTL returns for the 3rd year as the premier art fair in Fort Lauderdale, drawing collectors during the height of the season in South Florida. Fort Lauderdale is known as the “Venice of America” due to its expansive and intricate canal system, and this 4-day curated art fair showcases the art within luxury waterfront properties. Attendees are transported via complimentary water taxi on an artistic journey along the famed Intracoastal waterways, in the heart of the arts and entertainment district.
The ArtCURATED sector will encompass an entire property of 5,000 to 10,000 square feet, and feature 40+ artists, within six distinct, thematic exhibitions, under the direction of Lisa Rockford.

Seeking art that corresponds to the following Exhibition Themes:
• ECSTASY: A Celebration of Color. Seeking Monochromatic artworks (made of a single/dominant, vivid color), or works that offer all colors in the rainbow, within one work.
• AURA: A celebration of Light. Seeking artworks that reference intense light, auras, or are made with neon, LEDs, florescent, incandescent lights, digital, or electric light components.
• NARCISSUS: Seeking art with mirrors, mirrored surfaces, and/or chrome, or polished stainless steel.
• ELEMENTAL: Earth and Water. Seeking artworks that emphasize earth or water, and/or the human connection to either. Artworks that reference ecological concerns, like sea level rise, and pollution, are of curatorial emphasis.
• MEMENTO MORI: Seeking artwork that references death, time, mortality, and transience.
• OMEGA: The absence of color. Seeking artworks that are nearly or completely white, yet offer exquisite surface quality, texture, or aesthetic.
Please note: This Call for Art (and the themes & terms listed here) are specifically for the artCURATED sector of ArtFTL, and is a separate application (with a different fee structure) from the ArtINDIE Category on the ArtFTL website.

André Leon Talley has been a fixture in the world of fashion for so long that it’s difficult to imagine a time when he wasn’t defining the boundaries of great style. Kate Novack’s intimate portrait, The Gospel According to André takes viewers on an emotional journey from André’s roots growing up in the segregated Jim Crow South to become one of the most influential tastemakers and fashion curators of our times.

Novack’s film draws fascinating, heretofore unexplored connections, between the elegance of André’s beloved grandmother and the Black Church of his youth and his later iconic, barrier-breaking work at publications like Women’s Wear Daily, W and Vogue. Weaving together a wealth of archival footage from the most glamorous moments in fashion history with André’s poignant reflections on his life and career, The Gospel According to André is a cinematic monument to one of the most unique figures of 20th Century American culture.

Produced by the team who brought viewers The First Monday in May and Page One: Inside The New York Times and featuring commentary from fashion luminaries including Anna Wintour, Marc Jacobs and Tom Ford, The Gospel According to André is an indispensable addition to the growing canon of fashion documentary.
