Tens of thousands of cultural enthusiasts will descend upon the vibrant streets and sands of Miami Beach for a unique all-night experience during Sleepless Night, taking place November 5 – 6, 2011. This year, the festival has set its sights higher than ever, pairing quality and variety by presenting an eclectic mix of more than 150 local and international artists ranging from trapeze artists, to contemporary dancers, to classical musicians performing at various public sites across Miami Beach.
Modeled after Nuit Blanche in Paris and Montréal’s All-Nighter, the first edition of Sleepless Night in 2007 was a success with rave reviews from locals and art aficionados alike, and the second edition in 2009 drew more than 130,000 people. The events, all of which are free, make a full range of cultural performances and venues accessible to every age and interest.
The City of Miami Beach provides convenient, complimentary shuttle buses between the venues for the entire duration of Sleepless Night. The 13-hour marathon culminates with a grand finale breakfast concert on the beach.
This night will feature more than one hundred theater groups, concerts in a variety of genres, museum and gallery exhibits, walking tours discovering Miami architecture, comedians, and much more. Highlighted artists include the New World Symphony, Project Bandaloop, Sarruga, MarchFourth Marching Band, The Dream Engine, Livio Tragtenberg, Tim Miller, Nicole Henry, Will Calhoun, Victor Bailey, David Gilmore and other jazz greats.
