Coral Sky Amphitheatre at the South Florida Fairgrounds has had more name changes than Sean John Combs. But despite the merry-go-round of names, it’s been a solid part of South Florida music history with a stellar line up of legendary performers as well as musical festivals over the years. Everyone from Aerosmith to Tom Petty to Dave Matthews Band to Brad Paisley has performed at the 20,000-seat open-air venue. The venue has both reserved covered seating and lawn seating for a more adventurous concert experience. A family zone on the lawn reserves space for those seeking a non-drinking, non-smoking night.
