Florida Music Festival Set to Rock Downtown Orlando April 7-9, 2011

If you love checking out local music and yet-to-be-discovered bands, you’ll definitely want to check out the Florida Music Festival.

This year’s FMF takes place this week, from Thursday, April 7 to Saturday, April 9. It spans 10 venues throughout downtown Orlando, including Wall St. Plaza, BackBooth, 57 West, Orlando Tastings, The Social and One Eyed Jack’s.

FMF also has drawn in some top notch bands, including headliners like Minus the Bear and JJ Grey & Mofro on Thursday night; Easy Star All-Stars and The Ettes on Friday; and Better Than Ezra and The Supervillains on Saturday.

The FMF website has a complete schedule of performers, along with which venues they’re playing at online.

Now, you might think that having so many great bands playing so many venues would cost a lot to attend, but the FMF is truly a great value. Single day passes are only $15 for Thursday and $10 for Friday or Saturday. Or, you can get a pass good for all 3 days of music for only $25.

That’s right – over 150 bands on 10 stages for only $25!

Both the single day and 3-day passes allow you to venue-hop, so if you don’t like one band, head over to another stage.

You can buy passes or get more information on the Florida Music Festival website.

If you happen to go and get some great shots of the festival, drop us a link and we’ll let our readers know to go check them out.

Rock on Orlando!
