Other artists will include seminal indie rock acts The Raconteurs and Pixies, and the popular folk rock ensemble, The Avett Brothers.
Main stage Headliners will be the only action on the main stage during their headline set – but during the weekend, Festival fans will be able to experience all the action from multiple stages and performance areas in a way that is accessible, inclusive, and designed as a shared celebration of American music heritage and culture. Additionally, a ‘coffee house’ venue will spotlight traditional folk, bluegrass, jazz and other legacy artists, and will promote the work of local and regional artisans, visual artists, and craft vendors.
Fans will be able to enjoy a downtown music festival in a major regional hub, utilizing local hotel accommodations and free and frequent shuttle bus service directly from downtown to the festival site at the Florida Citrus Bowl Park.
