Miami Beach Holiday Festival of Lights

This holiday season, prepared to be dazzled and amazed when you experience a series of dazzling spectaculars of music and light as the Miami Beach Holiday Festival of Lights takes to South Beach Dec. 1-23 at various locations.  

Presented by the Miami Beach Classical Music Festival (MMF), a nonprofit dedicated to providing affordable, world-class musical instruction and groundbreaking performance experiences to young artists and the South Florida community, these first-of-their-kind live musical performances will feature cutting-edge projection-mapping technology where intricate lighting designs and captivating visuals overlap, turning some of South Beach’s most iconic building façades into interactive exhibits with vibrant imagery. Every surface during these awe-inspiring productions will become a living canvas as the projections play off the buildings’ various shapes and textures in perfect unison with the rhythm of the music.
