WYNWOOD GEARS UP FOR THE ANNUAL STREET ART FESTIVAL 4/25-4/27/2014

Miami, Fla., March, 2014 / – What started out as a blog that celebrated life in the Wynwood neighborhood, has organically evolved into a festival that’s poised to raise the bar on all the things that Miami loves –art, music, fashion and food! The three-day celebration will take place in the hip Wynwood district on 6th Avenue, between 22nd and 24th Streets, from April 25th- 27th. Trek6, the celebrated artist who has become synonymous with the area one wall at a time, will commemorate the festival by designing and painting the inaugural Wynwood Life poster and wall.

“The walls of Wynwood are intrinsic to this community, which is why we wanted to build a wall specifically for Trek6 to paint.” That finished wall will be taken apart, brick by brick, and the first 350 posters will come with one of the numbered bricks from that one-of-a-kind work of art,” said Tony Albelo, festival curator. The idea behind this festival stemmed from the need to give local artists, craftsmen and designers the representation that they deserved by giving them a platform to showcase their creations.

Organizers expect 20,000 people over the course of the three-day event, partaking in everything that the festival has to offer.

Kicking off of the musical line-up on Friday night will be Congolese-Belgian hip-hop artist Baloji, who was brought to Miami and the Festival by MDC Live Arts. Baloji has performed with U2’s Bono at Coachella and, more recently, at New York’s Lincoln Center. Other bands and DJs are scheduled to perform from one of two stages throughout the weekend. Ticket holders have the option of buying a VIP ticket, which would give them access to the Blue Moon VIP Lounge – an oasis in the festival with lounge seating and VIP view of the main musical stage. The Peroni Fashion Runway will feature several Miami stylists and bloggers showcasing “festival fashion” on Friday and Sunday night.  On Saturday, the Peroni Art & Fashion Runway Show will take over, and guests can stroll into the Peroni Style Lounge to talk one-on-one with fashion experts. In addition, Wynwood area restaurants will be on hand to sell their fare throughout the entire weekend.

Tickets start as low as $8.00 and can be purchased online at www.wynwoodlife.com. To receive the latest news, please “Like” their Facebook page at www.facebook.com/WynwoodLife, or follow them on Twitter and Instagram at WynwoodLife.
