While entertaining audiences from Lincoln Road to the Faena Theater and the North Beach Bandshell is the focus of the festival, it also has a humanitarian mission to celebrate and advocate for people with disabilities (more on this below).

Highlights of the 2023 festival still to be announced. A wide range of events are free and open to the public, while others have paid admission and even offer VIP packages.

An Inspiring Story

Founded in 2016 by David New and produced by his non-profit organization, Power Access, the South Beach Jazz Festival’s dual mission hits close to home. Nearly 20 years ago, New was diagnosed with a rare disease that left him deaf, blind and paralyzed. Against all odds and his doctor’s prognosis, he’s gradually regained his ability to walk and hear, but not his eyesight. Today, he works tirelessly to break down barriers and educate people about living and working with people with disabilities.

“The sheer talent of the artists defines them by ability rather than disability,” said New, who is also the festival’s president and artistic director. “It’s all about bringing our community together through the universal sound of music.”

In addition to his work with the South Beach Jazz Festival, New advocates for the enforcement of the Americans with Disabilities Act through his leadership with Access Now Inc. He also founded the Miami Beach Council of the Blind and acted as chairman of the Miami Beach Disability Access Committee.
