Summertime means that Miami’s music scene is hot — literally. With outdoor concerts all across town, sunscreen and proper hydration are mandatory. But the good news is that FTX Arena is also busting out with big shows, and it will keep you cool as the stage heats up. Otherwise, put on your dancing shoes and get ready to sweat it out all summer.
