Music and Super Bowl week will be synonymous in Miami, and there will be several free concerts on the beach and up in Broward.

On Thursday, Feb. 4 and Friday, Feb. 5 the Pepsi Super Bowl Fan Jam takes over Miami Beach on 8th Street and Ocean Drive.

Thursday's show features R&B diva Rihanna and teen-pop sensation Justin Bieber broadcast live on VH1. Friday's show has a significant Latin flavor with Nelly Furtado, Paulina Rubio, and Mr. 305 himself, Pitbull.

Tickets for both shows are free and available on a first-come, first serve basis on Gates open at 5 p.m. and the concerts will begin at 7 p.m.

On Saturday, Feb. 6, the Super Bowl Eve concert with O.A.R. & Barenaked Ladies takes place in Fort Lauderdale Beach Park (1100 Seabreeze Blvd.) They are joined at the free show by Grammy nominated phenom Robert Randolph & The Family Band. Show starts at 4 p.m. and a fireworks spectacular launches at 9:40 p.m.
