Music fans from across the globe will be making the trip to Florida next month, for the fifth annual Jazz in the Gardens music festival being held in Miami.

This high-profile event attracted almost 40,000 music lovers to the Florida city in 2009, which was double its attendance for 2008. According to Southern Festivals, the event’s organisers are aiming for an even greater 60,000 attendees this year, across the festival’s two-day duration on the weekend of 20 and 21 March.

Jazz in the Gardens showcases a range of musical talent in addition to providing a renowned festival atmosphere with food and merchandise from all over the world, reflecting the event’s multicultural flavour. This year’s festival has been extended to offer pre-festival events and after-parties at various locations around Miami Gardens, while the main event will once again take place at the city’s famous Sun Life Stadium, formerly known as the Dolphin Stadium.

Highlights of this year’s festival calendar include performances from legendary musicians Kenny G, Babyface and Erykah Badu among other big names from the music industry. The festival also offers much for non-jazz fans however, with performances from celebrated contemporary R&B artists such as Mary J Blige, Grammy-nominated Melanie Fiona, John Legend and Boyz II Men being scheduled to play at this year’s event.

The Jazz in the Gardens festival is enduringly popular for offering a diverse mix of genres at an affordable price, with options available for single day or weekend tickets. Events take place from 4pm to midnight on both days, with attendees having the freedom to drop in and out according to their wishes, provided they retain a valid ticket stub.

This year’s festival is being presided over by top radio personality Tom Joyner, and will also feature a number of beach and shopping activities to tie in with the main events. The festival is a major tourism draw for Miami Gardens, one of the largest suburban cities in Miami, which has also long been a popular sporting destination – with the Sun Life Stadium also being the home ground of American football giants the Miami Dolphins and baseball team the Florida Marlins.

With the Jazz in the Gardens festival already being tipped as one of the defining cultural events of the year, visitors from across the United States and elsewhere in the world are already securing their travel arrangements and hotels in Florida to experience the event firsthand.
