Snarky Puppy will once again host their GroundUP Music Festival in Miami this February, and the newly announced lineup features three nights of the host band along with music from Lettuce, Michael McDonald (who will be performing in an acoustic quartet with Snarky Puppy bandleader Michael League, saxophonist and festival artist-at-large Chris Potter and drummer Jamison Ross) and more.
Also set to play the three-day festival are Mexican singer Lila Downs, trumpeter Christian Scott Atunde Adjuah, drummer Brian Blade and his Fellowship Band, vocalist Cécile McLorin Salvant, Flor de Toloache, Becca Stevens and others.
“My vision for the festival is for people to maybe not recognize many artists on the bill but end up with a list of new artists they’ve discovered,” League says. “That’s the dream for me—to have people come and experience everything blind, in a very pure and open-minded way.”
See the full lineup below. GroundUP Music Festival is set for Feb. 14–16, 2020, in Miami Beach, FL. All festival information can be found here.
