It looks like it's going to be an epic weekend with Big Guava 2014's quality line-up.
Arguably what could be Florida's most fun-packed 3-day event of the year, Big Guava Music Festival makes its debut today (May 2nd 2014) with an impressive line-up headlined by Outkast, Vampire Weekend and Foster The People.
There's a lot of things we like about Florida, and we reckon Big Guava's inaugural event will definitely be one of them. Set against the glorious city backdrop of Tampa, this festival is bound to be the highlight of your year as it arrives at the Florida State Fairgrounds and Mid-Florida Credit Union Amphitheatre. As well as 40 awesome bands on 4 different stages, you got your craft beers, your diverse food trucks and your epic fairground rides (which are free, by the way) that will keep you busy in between performances from a line-up that prides itself on its quality over quantity. Having said that, we still think you're going to be spoilt for choice with this lot.
The line-up for Tortuga 2014 is a thrilling mix of veterans and newcomers; from Hank Williams, Jr. to Brett Eldredge.
Following the excitement of the Academy of Country Music Awards at the weekend, it's only right to give a little reminder of what's coming next weekend: Tortuga Music Festival hits Fort Lauderdale, Florida on April 12th-13th 2014!
It may be over 600 miles away from its namesake location in Haiti, but Florida's sandy Fort Lauderdale Beach Park nonetheless provides a perfect sun-soaked setting for the country, rock and roots event. Not only have you got a beautiful location and, of course, an incredible line-up, but by attending this festival you'll also be making a significant contribution to the Rock The Ocean Foundation - helping to raise money for ocean related research, conservation and education.
