DeLuna Festʼs six stages and waterfront hotels along Pensacola Beach will play host to national rock acts as well as regional rock superstars. In addition to the hottest in todayʼs mainstream and indie rock scene, the hottest DJs will be spinning poolside. All of this while the very best in jazz and blues will be performing in a special tented venue. Immediately after the main stage performances each evening the fun continues with indoor club parties in venues along the shore.
In its inaugural year, DeLuna Fest was able to bring an economic boost to the oil-spill ravaged Gulf Coast with the hugely attended 2010 music event. This year, Five Flags Tourism Group has partnered with Innisfree Hotel Group to make DeLuna Fest the Fallʼs biggest music festival with over 50k+ expected to attend. Festival attendees can stay at any number of beachfront properties just minutes from the action.
In addition to general admission passes, attendees will be given the opportunity to purchase VIP ticket/hotel packages that include on-site lodging in beachfront hotels with balconies overlooking performance stages, special VIP only events, and complimentary beverages.
