To help make Miami a musical destination by providing a stipend for touring acts to provide free or affordable concerts for an all-ages crowd.

To help make Miami a musical destination, Sweat Records will provide a stipend for touring acts to provide free or affordable concerts for an all-ages crowd.  The project will increase the number of quality events it brings to the community and will host and pay more touring acts to visit. Sweat Records will also revamp its stage area with new sound equipment, a simple lighting rig and seating for more patrons. Concerts will be documented via audio, video and photography. Highlights will be posted online and performers will get high quality footage for promotional use.

Sweat Records was founded in 2005 to fulfill the dual missions of providing Miami with a world-class record store and to be a unifying entity for South Florida's independent music scene.
