Four years later, the festival's Miami chapter has expanded into a successful three-day event, drawing nearly 180,000 attendees to Miami Gardens, Florida over the festival weekend in May of 2018, with the Festival expanding worldwide, arriving in the Bay Area on September 15-16, 2018 at Oakland Coliseum in Oakland, California and in Los Angeles on December 14-15, 2018 at Banc of California Stadium Grounds.
