Major Lazer, Hatcha, Mala and the Marleys at 9 Mile Music Festival

Everyone in Miami knows about the 18 Years running, 9 Mile Music Festival. Maybe you know it as the former "Caribbean Festival" or by the nickname "Marley Fest." This year the Marley's garnered the help of bass aficianado Juan BassHead and together they've put out quite an impressive lineup.

JUAN BASSHEAD + MC JUMANJI will perform of course, and they're bringing over some of their dubstep friends from the UK. I can't think of better dubstep ambassadors to the reggae/dub crowd than MALA of the Digital Mystikz and the Godfather HATCHA. The biggest surprise is definitely the booking of hipster favorite MAJOR LAZER. The group composed of producers DIPLO and SWITCH played insanely packed shows at Ultra and Grand Central last year, and should bring a whole other crowd to the festival.

9 Mile takes place at Bayfront Park the Saturday of Winter Music conference, March 12th and you can get your tickets here. More acts to be announced in the future, so stay tuned!
