Summertime in Florida can sometimes get a bad rap, as the heat and humidity that make it a prized destination throughout the rest of the year are decidedly more pronounced during the proverbial dog days. This year, however, the Sunshine State is hosting a number of hot-ticket concerts–so hot they’ll make the weather seem cool by comparison. Here’s the rundown.
