WINNER: Cruzan Amphitheatre The 19,000-seat open-air shed curated by Live Nation is unmatched when it comes to offering the sweaty, high-energy outdoor vibe that South Florida and most brands of pop music are famous for. The range of popular shows this year has included Nick TV stars Big Time Rush and Victoria Justice; Bob Dylan and Wilco; and Ozzy Osbourne and Black Sabbath. The grassy knoll in the back is a comfortable, cost-effective spot for moshing, mashing with your date or kicking back with a beer to the country anthems of Luke Bryan, Florida-Georgia Line and Thompson Square, hitting the Cruzan on Oct. 26.
