Beginning on Friday, LiveXLive and Vaunt’s Music Lives Ballerfest will take over Miami as the first-ever basketball, music and pop-culture live event to hit the city, with 72-hours of non-stop Afrobeat, EDM, hip-hop, latin, R&B, and country music from over 150 artists.
The full-on festival will provide in-person performances by stars Da Baby, Key Glock, Vintage Culture, Mariah Angeliq, Alvaro Diaz, Nohemy and Tkay Maidza, and more.
The team that brought you Social Gloves, where YouTube stars battled it out against TikTok stars, returns for the next phase of its next-age form of entertainment. “We are an artist-focused platform that’s mission is to create amazing experiences for fans both live and virtually,” said Rob Ellin, Founder and CEO of LiveOne in an interview with True Hollywood Talk. “Our goal is always to help maximize exposure for our artists to their super fans, as well as encourage music discovery.”
For those who can’t attend Ballerfest in-person, don’t worry, because the LiveXLive has you covered with live streaming of the event, plus virtual performances by Wiz Khalifa, Pitbull, Trey Songz, Trace Adkins, Nelly, Monsta X, Sk8, Lil Tjay, G Herbo, Olivia Lunny, Cannons, Bryce Vine, Marc E. Bassy, Gianni & Kyle and Jake Miller on LiveXLive.
This year will mark the third and most ambitious iteration yet of the LiveXLive Music Lives franchise with a 3-day hybrid lineup of artists, which will be live-streamed to over 200 countries. And what would a festival like this be without some A-list celebrity sightings, including Floyd Mayweather coaching streetballers and influencers Bone Collector, White Iverson, Chris Staples, and more for a special 3×3 celebrity game. Plus watch players compete in dunk contests, and the very first FIBA 3×3 AmeriCup Championship basketball tournament between all-star players from countries throughout the globe.
You don’t want to miss the non-stop 72 hours of live music. You can purchase your tickets here. The festival takes place from November 12 through November 14, at Bayfront Park in Miami.
