Several Pensacola bands are getting their chance to shine at DeLuna again this year. Let’s support them, loud and proud.
1:30-2 p.m., Saturday, WindCreek Stage
Paloma has played DeLuna Fest for a few years now, usually at some official after-party or on a small stage when most of the festival is coming to an end and the locals are still raging. This year, they’re on the second biggest stage, right in the middle of the day, ready to please the large crowds that might not know they’re awesome, like the Pensacolaians already do.
Pioneers! O Pioneers!
3-3:45 p.m., Friday, WindCreek Stage
Pioneers! O Pioneers! is a relatively new band, new to playing big festivals on big stages. However, they are not new to playing their hearts out and sweating their faces off. A good time will be had by all at this show. In case anyone is looking for a pre-show glimpse of their sound—who hasn’t had the pleasure of hearing it within the walls of the Handlebar—pop into Revolver Records and pick up their newest CD.
Assortment of Pensacola D.J.’s
D.J.’s like Girl Talk, Skrillex, and Deadmau5 have made mash-ups, dubstep and house music crazy popular lately, and DeLuna fest is jumping on the bandwagon. Twelve different local D.J.’s will be featured throughout the weekend on the Red Bull MTX Stage, to keep festivalgoers happy and dancing in between bands. There are even some late night shows in case people are still up for a party.
