Good day friends! It’s been a stressful week full of rain and sorrows, but I just know that tomorrow is going to be a brighter day. Even though it’s cold and rainy now, it will be hot and rainy soon enough, and that means summer. And summer means music festivals. But, if you’re from Florida, you know that we don’t have any big music festivals. Our festivals are usually centered on farming, eating, or guns. But, this summer is the start of something great. Enjoy.
Big Guava Music Festival: May 2-4 2014
Three days, more than 20 acts, and enough fun to blind small children, that’s right kids it’s the Big Guava Festival. Produced by the all-powerful musical overlords Live Nation, Big Guava Fest is something new and exciting for Florida music lovers to lose their minds over. I randomly stumbled upon Big Guava, and could not be more enthralled. We’re talkin’ Outkast. We’re talkin’ Vampire Weekend. We’re talkin’ me pooping my pants in anticipation. I cannot wait for this summer!
This is the first time I can recall Florida having a decent sized music festival, and it’s something that we’ve needed for a long time. Anyone who has ever been in Florida during the summer knows it’s hell. But, what could be a better reason to brave heat? There’s going to be so many great acts, from many different genres. Haim is playing. You guys know how much I love Haim. Oh you don’t? Well here’s a subtle plug to remind you. And here’s another so I can tell you how excited I am that Deap Vally is also playing.
And here’s a graphic with everyone who’s playing!
Tickets to the three day event are $191.10 after fees. This is an event is a beautiful thing for central Florida. Hopefully it will become an annual event, grow larger, and kick ass. See you there.
