FEST19 Announces First Wave of Lineup Feat. Hot Water Music, Cursive, Flatliners, & More

In these wild and turbulent times a light is forming at the end of the tunnel: The FEST has announced the first wave of bands for FEST19, set for Oct. 31-Nov. 1.

This year’s lineup includes Gainesville originals Hot Water Music, playing two nights: Night one playing A Flight and A Crash and night two playing all fan requests. HWM is far from the only band putting on a special set. The Flatliners are celebrating ten years of Cavalcade by playing the album through; Samiam is playing Astray to mark 20 years; and Cursive is commemorating 20 years themselves with a play through of Domestica.

See the full first wave lineup here:


For those concerned about the COVID19 crisis, The FEST has updated its refunds policy: “If for any reason we have to cancel or you for any reason can not make it to FEST 19 WE WILL GIVE REFUNDS. Life is unpredictable, now more than ever, but if you decide you want to buy tickets now and something in your life changes, know that we have your back.”

Tickets are tier-priced again this year, increasing with every 500 sold. Tickets, hotels, and merch are on sale now via the FEST website here.
