Since its inception in 2004, Love-In Music Festival has been held at Greynolds Park, famously known for its sixty’s peace movement history as the location where Miami’s “flower child” staged “love-ins” were held to protest against the Vietnam War. The event has grown in scale and popularity ever since and has hosted many national artistes including Joey Molland’s Badfinger, The Classic Rock All Stars, The Guess Who, Chuck Negron, and Ritchie Havens to name a few.
