So far, 88 of the bands playing FEST 14 will be hitting Florida a little early so do some “special” sets down in Ybor for you. Make sure to check the PRE-FEST BANDS box on the LINEUP PAGE to see a complete list of who is playing this year.
DON’T FORGET TICKETS / HOTELS / MERCH / PCFE ALL GOES ON SALE JUNE 1ST!!!
For now, be sure to check out the hotel options for this year. We have two hotels right in YBOR now for PRE-FEST 3 that you can stumble home to and three Gainesville hotels to choose from this year (ft a way cheaper option if you have wheels or can afford a ride).
Also, check on a flight to TAMPA and join us for PRE-FEST 3! I think everyone who has gone or played the past two years will agree that it is kinda the BEST! Make sure to check out the PORK CHOP FEST EXPRESS (PCFE) for an easy, safe and affordable way to get from PRE-FEST 3 to FEST 14 and/or back to Tampa International Airport. Gainesville has a great airport too but keep in mind it is SMALL! So, flights book up quick for Gainesville. Shop early and save!!!
BE PART OF THE FAMILY
