Miami, FL – Following a pandemic-induced hiatus, Miami’s Jazz In The Gardens weekend festival is set to return with 305 legend Rick Ross in place as the headliner.
On Friday (March 11), Rick Ross spoke with CBS Miami about his upcoming performance at the Miami Gardens for his first ever appearance at Jazz in the Gardens, which also doubles as the inaugural post-COVID-19 iteration of the event that has become a community pastime over the last decade and change.
“I go hard every time I go, but this time will be special because I’m home,” Rick Ross said. “First time at Jazz in the Gardens. I’m going to make sure it’s historic. That’s the only way I know.”
Rick Ross went on to describe his excitement with the growth of the event in recent years, theorizing how the local festival can potentially measure up to California’s own world renowned Coachella art and music festival.
“This generation you have your own little Coachella, right here in the city,” he said. “I just wanna watch the lineup, watch the crowd, watch everybody that’s from here and not from here coming together to be here, right in my neighborhood.”
Jazz In The Gardens will take place on March 12 and features performances from multiple artists including co-headliner Mary J. Blige, H.E.R., veteran R&B group SWV, The Roots and the special guest T-Pain and The Isley Brothers.
