HISTORIC VIRGINIA KEY BEACH

4020 Virginia Beach Drive
Miami, FL 33126

Virginia Key Beach Park is a beautiful beachside park with a very special history. Located south and southeast from sparkling Downtown Miami, the park sits on an 82-acre barrier island in Biscayne Bay.

 GET DIRECTIONS  FESTIVAL MAP

Accessible from the mainland via the Rickenbacker Causeway, Virginia Key Beach is a beautiful mile long sandy strip that will be filled with music, culture, and food during the festival.

23 YEARS OF MUSIC HISTORY

The 9 Mile Music Festival began in 1993 as a brain-child and testament of love for Cedella Marley Booker in memoriam of her son, Bob Marley. Formerly known as Marley Fest and The Caribbean Music Festival, the event has been renamed for the village of his birth, the place that lies at the heart of our family.

“Together we can make a difference for those who are less fortunate. United we stand, divided we fall.”

CANNED FOOD DRIVE

More than a concert, more than a day, the 9 Mile Music Festival has provided over 3 million canned goods since it’s inception. Distributing them to homeless shelters and domestic centers throughout Miami; feeding families in need for months. For 22 years, the concert has required canned goods in addition to the price of admission, and it always will.

Every year the 9 Mile Music Festival needs volunteers and dedicated interns to help make our concert experience like no other! Do you have the creativity, talent, and drive to #go9Mile? Fill out the contact form, we’ll be in touch.

BE A VENDOR

We always want a lot of great food, clothing and other goods to offer our patrons at the festival.

With food, we’re thinking all natural and organic, not the typical amusement-park fare. We want an emphasis on good, fresh and reasonably priced. In the past, we’ve averaged 25 food vendors offering everything from Jamaican and Chinese cuisine to I-tal and Halal foods, Vegan and Vegetarian.

What else?

The festival is a festival-goer's paradise, selling everything from hats and jewelry to handmade soap and T-shirts. This year we want to help 9-Milers relax even more with, mind-body activities like yoga session or natural healing seminars. These special vendors will be featured in our brand new experience plaza. For more information, contact our office directly.

Just tell us what you want to sell or offer in the vendor application below, and we’ll set you up.

It’s pretty simple.

We bring the fans; you bring the good food and the natural products to enhance their experiences.
