April always means two things – a change in seasons (for most of the country anyway) and FEST announcements! The Gainesville staple is back for another year of bands, buds, and too much beer.
Historically, a date in April is always set to announce the first wave lineup of bands, the official Fest hotels, and release the first wave of tickets. But this year was a little different. The Fest crew releases the lineup in April, but experienced issues with the ticket and hotel sale website. They did an amazing job of keeping the fans updated, letting everyone that they were troubleshooting and would announce the new sale date on social media whenever the problems were ironed out.
Finally that day is here! Fest announced today, via Instagram and Facebook, that tickets will be going on sale on Monday, May 15th and hotels will be up for grabs on the same day. When available, you can grab your tickets and start planning your trip HERE. In the meantime, check out the first wave of the lineup below and start drooling!
