The success of last year’s Country Bay Music Festival was immensely rewarding,” said Nelson Albareda, CEO of Loud And Live, producers of the festival. “As a first-year festival, we not only hosted a premier country music festival in Miami featuring stellar artists, but also provided an exceptional experience for our music fans and partner sponsors. The festival reaffirmed our city’s reputation as a vibrant playground and established Miami as a must-visit destination for country music enthusiasts from around the world.”

A must-see group at this year’s festival is the multi-platinum, GRAMMY® Award-winning group Zac Brown Band, who will be bringing their “Chicken Fried” classic to Miami. Throughout their career spanning more than a decade, this hard-gigging band from Atlanta has scored six consecutive albums that reached the Top 10 of the Billboard 200 and five consecutive albums debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Country Albums chart. The group has won three GRAMMY® Awards, including Best New Artist in 2010.

Festival headliner Carrie Underwood hardly needs an introduction, save the fact she is the best-selling female country artist of all time, selling more than 85 million records worldwide. The charismatic Oklahoma native recorded 28 chart-topping singles (14 of which she co-wrote) and is the most-awarded female country artist for singles in RIAA history. She has won over 100 major awards including 8 GRAMMY® Awards, 16 ACM Awards including three for Entertainer of the Year (the first female in history to win twice and the only female ever to win three times), 25 CMT Music Awards (holding the record for the most award wins ever for the show), 7 CMA Awards, and 17 American Music Awards.

A unique festival entry is GRAMMY® Award-winning DJ, producer, and songwriter Diplo, a prominent figure in dance music circles who has jumped headlong into country music via his electro-cowboy persona, Thomas Wesley. Diplo is known for his eclectic, ’80s-oriented mashups, mixtapes, and live sets. Diplo’s collaborations with pop superstar Justin Bieber, R&B chanteuse Sia and country idol, Morgan Wallen have racked up more than two billion streams on Spotify.

In addition to the main stage performances, festivalgoers can immerse themselves in the country music experience with a variety of activities and food vendors serving up delicious fare. With its stunning waterfront location and vibrant atmosphere, the Miami Marine Stadium provides the perfect backdrop for a weekend of music and dancing.

This year, the festival will feature Country Carnival, which will offer breathtaking views from the southern swings and plenty of fun-filled games, as well as delectable sweets and treats. Apart from the rides, festival attendees can stomp their boots while putting their line dancing skills to the test or challenge the mechanical bull at the revamped Saloon.
