News: Inaugural Day In The Vines Concert Series Lineup Announced in Texas

C3 Presents and CRS have just announced the Inaugural A Day In The Vines concert series to take place May 9 and 10 at Spicewood Vineyards in Texas. This Mother’s Day weekend celebration was inspired by New Zealand’s Winery Tour and will benefit Kids in a New Groove, with a portion of proceeds benefitting the nonprofit.

With the popularity of similar festivals such as Bottlerock in Napa Valley, this brand new concert series fills a big niche in Texas and highlights the diversity and beauty of our very own wine region. With headliners The Revivalists and Norah Jones, incredible food and wine, plus a diverse roster of all-ages activities, this is a Mothers-day bash that all can enjoy.

News: Virgin Fest Announces Inaugural 2020 Lineup

Virgin Fest has just released the lineup for their much-anticipated 2020 inaugural event. Held in Los Angeles June 6 and 7th at Banc of California Stadium and Exposition Park, it seems to fit nicely into a festival niche that’s gone unserved in the LA area for far too long. With a killer lineup featuring Lizzo, A$AP Rocky, Anderson Paak, Major Lazer and Ellie Goulding, the magnitude of the music is just one aspect of what’s certainly to become a killer annual festival.

With a commitment to sustainability, cutting-edge technology, innovation and inclusivity, the folks behind Virgin Fest are not cutting corners. The site was selected for ease-of-access via public transportation – directly combatting issues with access, traffic and parking. They’re handpicking vendors for their commitment to sustainability and they’re trying out a deposit-based reusable cup system to do away with single-use plastic cups. And they’ve selected a site with plenty of shade, seating and amenities.

But this comes as no surprise, really. Virgin Fest Co-founder and CEO Jason Felts is a veritable veteran of the festival world. He’s one of the few behind the smashing success of KAABOO festivals (Del Mar, Cayman Islands, Dallas and now San Diego for 2020) in previous years, and if these ultra-luxury, no-holds-barred festivals are any indication, we’re in for a big treat. “With a focus purely on people and planet, I am proud to launch a first of its kind music and tech experience built upon a foundation of positivity, equality and unmatched hospitality,“ says Felts.

As for the lineup itself? We couldn’t be more pleased. Did we honestly expect anything less?? No, not at all. We can’t wait. Grab your passes here and we’ll see you in June.

They’re also stopping by Boston Calling, Something In The Water and New Orleans Jazz Fest this year.

ARE YOU READY??? Join the Foos in commemorating their 25th anniversary by revisiting stops along their 1995 tour! IN THE ROUND! 🤘 -FF

Tortuga Music festival: The must-see florida fest of 2020.

The annual Tortuga Music festival returns to Fort Lauderdale Beach Park for 2020, boasting a can’t-miss lineup of country, rock and roots music. Featuring headliners Miranda Lambert, Luke Bryan and Tim McGraw on April 17-19, it offers three days, multiple stages and a lot more than just heavy-hitters Pitbull, Barenaked Ladies and Vanilla Ice stopping by to keep the party going.

Held on the beach itself, Tortuga combines a feel-good-vibe with a mission to give back, raising awareness and money for marine conservation. Partnering with Rock The Ocean Foundation, they’ve successfully raised over $2,000,000; given back to Conservation Village partners as a direct result of ticket sales and donations. They’re also aiming to increase public awareness about the issues impacting the world’s oceans and to support scientific research, education, and ocean conservation initiatives.

If that’s not a reason to grab your tickets and head to the white sands of Fort Lauderdale Beach Park, I don’t know what is.

News: Forecastle Music Festival 2020 Lineup Released

Forecastle Music Festival has just released their 2020 lineup for the July 17-19 festival held in Louisville, KY. Known for a mixed-genre annual blowout that incorporates elements of music, art and activism, this year’s festival lineup has been met with mixed reviews.

While we love the mix of genres; from rock and hip-hop to blues and electronic, the secret to this particular festival is in the small print. Artists such as Caroline Rose, Illiterate Light, LP, Elohim and Soccer Mommy are almost hidden. Yet these will truly be can’t-miss acts that change the whole lineup.

Our pick for most-underrated artist on the lineup?

Hands-down, LP. This human possesses vocals of an otherworldly quality and puts on a hell of a show. We’d go to Forecastle just for LP.

News: Beale Street Music Festival Announces Phenomenal 2020 Lineup

If Beale Street Music Festival in downtown Memphis wasn’t already on your list, today’s announcement of a stacked lineup might just get you there.

Held May 1-3 in Tom Lee Park during Memphis in May International Festival, it’s an impressively jam-packed lineup. Appealing to a wide demographic with a little of everything, it also boasts a surprisingly large list of music heavyweights. The Lumineers? Smashing Pumpkins? Weezer? 1975? Lil Wayne? Seriously impressive. If that’s not enough, it’s also followed by the 2020 World Champion Barbecue cooking contest, and if that isn’t worth sticking around for, I don’t know what is. BSMF has put themselves on the map this year. We can’t wait.

We’re tempted to list Dirty Honey or The Glorious Sons, but everyone already knows how great they are. So we’ll pick Rival Sons and AJR, both of whom are one hell of a party. Oh and Nelly, because BSMF just got a lil’ hot in herrrre…
