      Charlotte, N.C. – Variety Entertainment announces the return of the Pepsi Funk Fest to Miramar Regional Park on Friday, December 9 at 6 p m., and Saturday, December 10 at 4  p.m. Funk Fest is one of the country’s largest traveling music festivals, entertaining close to 110,000 people annually with amazing talent line-ups that feature some of the top platinum selling artists in R&B, Hip Hop and Soul music from the past two decades. After a successful first run in 2015, Pepsi Funk Fest is back with a line up that is sure to please every music lover.  Each day, Funk Fest will feature an explosive mix of 90’s legends and global superstars who include:

Friday, Dec. 9: Jodeci Dru Hil, SWV, H-Town and Trick Daddy

Saturday, Dec. 10 : TLC, Bell, Biv, Devoe, Guy Featuring Teddy Riley and Mystikal.

In 2015, over 10,000 music lovers attended the inaugural Funk Fest, and in anticipation for large crowds this year, fans can look forward to faster admissions into Miramar Park due to faster check-in lines at entry gates which will avoid any inconvenience at admission.  Luxury shuttles will also be provided to make sure parking is easily accesible and comfortable for patrons.

“In an effort to make Funk Fest a great experience for the fans, we have made some changes to ensure a seamless admission process and we are assured by the City of Miramar that parking will be more accessible and affordable,” said Leo Bennett, CEO of Variety Entertainment.

    The City of Miramar will provide shuttle service from the nearby parking lot located at Everglades High School, 17100 SW 48 Court (Bass Creek Rd.), Miramar, FL 33027. Shuttles will begin at 3 p.m. on Friday and 1 p.m. on Saturday, and will run one full hour after the show. Parking in the shuttle lot is $10 per car, and includes round-trip transportation to the concert.  VIP Parking options are available, please visit FunkFest

The return of Funk Fest to Miramar proves that Miramar is a destination city poised to offer quality cultural entertainment. This year’s line- up is star studded and is sure to be an awesome show.said Mayor Wayne M. Messam, Mayor of Miramar
