HEY FEST FRIENDS
HAPPY FRIDAY THE 13TH! Before you go get your $13 tattoos, we have quite the update for you all!
WE’VE GOT ONE MILLION BANDS TO ANNOUNCE!
Well, we’re about 999,700 bands short of that… HOWEVER, this announcement puts us up over the 300 mark! I hope you all enjoyed the teaser we left you with a few weeks ago, and get ready to geek over it even harder! Remember, you can head over to the BANDS PAGE on the site to see the complete list of who is confirmed. Also, if you notice the swanky little “FL Exclusive” banner, then that band WILL NOT BE TOURING AROUND FLORIDA, *hint hint Floridian ladies and gents*, Pre-Fest and Fest will be your only chance to catch them in the Sunshine State.
WE’RE ESPECIALLY THRILLED TO INCLUDE THE ERGS! WHO HAVEN’T PLAYED TOGETHER SINCE 2010! (UNLESS YOU CAUGHT THEM LAST NIGHT PLAYING ON THE CHRIS GETHARD SHOW!)
