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 4 will take place in newly christened Omni Park located across from the Arsht Center and underneath the 395 overpass. Attendees are encouraged to utilize Miami Dade Public Transit whenever possible. Omni Park is easily accessible from the School Board Metromover Stop. Additionally, many Metrobus routes service the area. If you prefer to drive, there is plentiful 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. Have an idea to improve public spaces in Miami? Submit your concept to the 2017 Public Space Challenge until April 6!
