Recognised and honored in 2019 with a proclamation by the city of Miami, the one-of-a-kind music festival has each year welcomed a diverse community of record-breaking crowds from all over the world and has become the perfect getaway for music aficionados who prefer to “experience” live Caribbean music.
Retha Boone-Fye, program officer and director of the county’s Black Affairs Advisory Board said: “It is a celebration of Caribbean heritage. It has been kind of downplayed because it has been doing well for so long. Best of the Best has earned its reputation based on the fact it’s in its 13th year. This particular festival also hasn't had any negative incidents and we are very proud of that.”
Tickets purchased for BOTB 2020 edition of the festival are still valid and can be used for access to this year's Best of the Best Music Fest.
