The Fest 16 and Pre-Fest 5 presented by:



120 SW 1st Ave, Gainesville, FL
Hello, FEST!  Loosey’s Downtown is a locally owned bar/restaurant/music venue right across the street from High Dive & :08 and the downtown parking garage that includes Volta.

We’re also a full time Fest venue and hosting the Pineapple Party on Saturday… so if you’re in the area and hungry, we’re a local favorite AND there’s probably some badass set happening at the same time. 2WINS!
Fun Fact: Our opening weekend was Fest in 2010.  We almost didn’t get our liquor license in time, but one (pretty funny) story later, we got it done and ‘the rest is history’, as they say. This year is our 8th Fest weekend and another opportunity for us to contribute to making it the best one yet; we’re really excited to share these memories with you all! <3.
