Let’s face it, Summer time in Florida is hot. Well, things are going to go up a degree or two on July 23rd when more than a handful of the Gulf Coast’s most beloved rock bands join together for an all day, all local music festival that is open to all ages. Sponsored by Milton Skateboards and Tagzilla, this local rock festival is a much cheaper and more personal event than your typical Summer fests, where music fans of all ages can go and see their favorite local acts, several who are performing both plugged in and acoustically, for one low price at the American Legion Post 33 in Pensacola.
Headlined and created by Pensacola pop-core sensation This Day Will Tell (Indianola Records), and loaded with top notch talent from all over our beautiful area of NW Florida, including Scream Out Loud, Captions and Needless, Summerfest promises to be the one local rock show that you won’t want to miss. Thirteen bands will play the main stage from 1:00pm until the music stops. There will also be a second stage (downstairs), where a few of the main stage bands and some special guests will be performing stripped down acoustic sets for more of a mellow summer time vibe. In addition to the wonderful musical performances, Summerfest will also feature local stand up comedian Bubbs Harris and live painting by artist Scott Bond. Food and refreshments will be for sale by vendors on location all day, so nobody has to worry about passing out from lack of food and overload of excitement.
Sure to be one of those shows that will be talked about for a while, Summerfest is the perfect way for the youth, as well as the old diehards to beat the Southern heat and enjoy a full day’s worth of fantastic music, art and the company of a few hundred likeminded music fans. Presale tickets can be picked up from any band on the bill, or at Milton Skateboards and Blues Angel Music for the jaw dropping low price of $10. There will be plenty of tickets left at the door for $12 as well. Don’t miss the hottest show of the Summer by far. No other music festival features as many local bands, and the price is something to smile about.
