However, here is Crossfade's guide to the sounds of the festival of beer.
Straddling the line between '90s alternative and early-aughts indie rock, Modenage is one of South Florida's longest-running outfits. Last year, the group released its first single in four years, "It's Never Easy," and has been on a prolific songwriting kick ever since. You can be sure it will be bringing that snowballing momentum to Beerfest.
Can the 954 get down with 305 sounds? Survey says: Yes! Featuring Afrobeta's Tony Smurphio, Beatmachines is like the Dr. Frankenstein of Miami party music, sewing together choice components of EDM, pop music, and riddims from all over the globe to build the most fearsome party monster that could ever be imagined.
