About Us

Excited to kick off the 8th year of MBKF! The Miami Beach Kizomba Festival (MBKF) aims to bridge the gap between Africa and the African diaspora by sharing the music, dance and culture of various African countries and encouraging cross-cultural understanding.

Bringing over 1000+ people together from across the globe, MBKF continuously creates a one-of-a-kind atmosphere. This vibe and connection is a central part of the festival and a major reason why so many people show up each year!

From music concerts and pool parties with famed DJs to beach, fun and sun, join us in celebrating Africa and the African diaspora at MBKF 2022!

Our Team

We’re a small, friendly and talented team. Our backgrounds are diverse, our focus is committed. We put our passion into developing a memorable MBKF each year!

Accommodations: Eden Roc (Main Hotel)

MBKF 2022 will take place at the Eden Roc, right in the heart of Miami Beach. Lincoln Rd, Ocean Drive, Wynwood Art District & Bal Harbour Shops are minutes away with easy access to Miami & Fort Lauderdale Int’l Airports.

A vibrant city transitions to a beachside oasis. Lush interior spaces designed for pampering & relaxation offer oversized balconies peering out at the sea & the city. Whether you’re looking for a home base from which to explore Miami Beach or a serene oceanfront backdrop to unwind & escape, at Eden Roc Miami Beach your time belongs to you.

Eden Roc Miami Beach provides a modern, comfortable setting to relax & enjoy the view. Spacious rooms include oversized balconies overlooking the ocean or the city skyline, with three distinct pools, beachfront cabanas, on-site dining & contemporary design.

Accommodations: Holiday Inn (Overflow Hotel)

Our room block at the Eden Roc is selling out. Therefore, the Holiday Inn Miami Beach – Oceanfront Hotel, a short 7 min walk away, has been selected as the overflow hotel for MBKF 2022.

Welcome to the tropically inspired Holiday Inn Miami Beach – Oceanfront hotel, where our 1950’s Miami Modern (MiMo) exterior blends seamlessly with vibrant contemporary South Beach style to wrap you in modern comfort. Eleven miles east of Miami International Airport (MIA), our Miami Beach oceanfront hotel is located where I-195 meets A1A at the Atlantic Ocean.

Our oceanfront Miami Beach hotel offers you an unparalleled location, right off Collins Avenue and just two miles from South Beach; home of the best clubs, dining, and shopping. With the Miami Beach beachwalk at your doorstep, take a moonlit stroll on the beach by night, play in the surf by day or simply relax by our large pool overlooking the beach and our lush, tropical garden with its hammock oasis.

Passes with incomplete or abbreviated first or last name will be canceled. Valid ID check will be performed upon registration onsite and must match the name on the purchased pass.

Schedule

Similar to MBKF 2021, we are changing our format to focus on our parties – from nighttime dancing and epic pool parties to unforgettable sunrises. We will not be offering workshops as we have done in the past.

All events will be held within the Eden Roc Miami Beach. You do not need to stay at the hotel to attend the festival. Below is the general schedule as of February 4, 2022. We will provide a detailed program as the event approaches.
