Many Florida cities have annual music festivals. Some festivals are small events that showcase local talent and often focus on a specific type of music. You can find events like this no matter where you are in the state. Other festivals attract big names in the music industry and people from all over the country travel be a part of them. These events are most common in South Florida, but there are a few that take place in other cities as well.
