The 14th Annual Florida Music Festival will feature more than 150 bands on 10 stages over 3 nights in downtown Orlando from April 24-26, 2014.
If you’re a music lover, this fest is for you, as you’ll hear everything from regional and local lesser-knowns to nationally recognized acts…and at a really wallet-friendly price.
Admission is only $10 per night, or $30 for the whole weekend. I mean, who offers 150 bands for only $30 anymore? This is a wonderful opportunity to check out a bunch of bands live.
The event is spread out over several venues – Backbooth, Bullitt Bar, Cafe Annie’s, Elixir, Firestone Live, Magnolia, The Social, Tanqueray’s, and two stages at Wall St. Plaza – all within a several block walking radius of each other.
This free event will include healthy living and eco-friendly exhibitors, speakers, and presentations. There will be lots of fun and games for kids, dog and cat adoptions, and environmental and humane education.
Several stages will feature local musicians and there will also be several cooking demonstrations and restaurant vendors featuring vegetarian and vegan food.
2011 Central Florida Earth Day will take place on Saturday, April 23, 2011 at Lake Eola (195 N Rosalind Avenue; downtown) from 10:00am – 6:00pm, rain or shine.
Then you’ll want to be at the House of Blues on March 26, 2011, for The Lighter Exchange CD release party.
The band was formed in 2006 by singer-songwriter Christian Wilson, and the current line-up also includes my buddy Jeremy Hagen, along with Michael Rollo, Jacob Morton, and Clayton Senne.
Their new release is called “Beneath The Endlessness,” and while I haven’t heard it yet, I did like the tunes I heard on their MySpace page.
The show is all ages and also features the bands Stockhom, Chasing Thrill and Falling for Sarah on the bill. It costs only $5 to get in, but if you check out the flyer to the right, you’ll see how you can get tickets for free.
