CULTRA is Miami’s first roving, outdoor Open Mic which is held in a different Downtown Miami Park each third-Thursday of the month from January to May 2017. The project is a co-production of Buskerfest Miami and Emerge Miami that features a collaboration with a different, existing open mic organizer each month. Forget the OONTZ OONTZ of Ultra – let’s celebrate the real Miami with CULTRA!

Interested in performing? Pre-register through our simple form. You may register at each venue 6:30-7:30pm, but pre-registrants take precedence.

CULTRA 5 will take place at the Tina Hills Pavilion in Bayfront Park. Attendees are encouraged to utilize Miami Dade Public Transit whenever possible. Bayfront Park is easily accessed from the Bayfront Park Metromover stop, as well as any Metrobus routes that service Biscayne Blvd. If you prefer to drive, there are numerous parking garages and tons of street parking on blocks neighboring the park.



CULTRA is made possible by a 2016 Public Space Challenge grant awarded by the Miami Foundation. The Miami Foundation’s Public Space Challenge uncovers the best ideas for creating, improving and activating parks, plazas and local gathering places.
