Art Basel extends far beyond the art world and acts more as a barometer for innovation than anything else.

Having blown up in the last couple years, it’s become Miami’s SXSW of sorts — maybe less sweat and more swank, but a meeting place nonetheless for the world’s most highly regarded  musicians, filmmakers, techies, chefs and more. Once the people who can afford to add to their art collection are done collecting, they’ll be looking for entertainment, of which Miami has no shortage. Here are 9 musical acts to catch this week whether you’re a high rolling art snob or a lowly attendee:
