FEST Express

FEST EXPRESS (SHUTTLE BUS)

NEED A RIDE FROM TAMPA TO GAINESVILLE AND BACK?

We have that covered too! We have set up a very special bonus to help make your extended Florida vacation even easier. We have partnered with a top notch charter bus company. Each bus has 55 seats. We are calling these sweet rides the FEST EXPRESS, this premium coach bus service comes with cold cold  A/C, restrooms, large luggage area, free Wi-Fi & DVD entertainment system where we will be screening a movie of Tony’s choosing! Also, when you get on the FEST EXPRESS you will be given a very special FEST EXPRESS t-shirt that no one else will be able to purchase. We filled up three of these cruisers last year and we only heard good reports back from attendees. I think most just needed two hours of rest before the marathon Gainesville was about to unleash on them.

“After a hellaciously rad two days in Ybor I had met a lot of awesome people and had been to even more awesome shows. So when it came time to board the bus, I realized that most of those awesome Festers were on my bus headed for Gainesville! It felt like being on an eighth grade field trip with your best friends all over again. Not many people can say that they bonded over a bus ride with “Big Trouble In Little China,” but we all did. The [FEST Express] was the perfect appetizer for the main course that would be Fest 12. But the icing on the cake was the opportunity to stare at that modern day Adonis Kurt Russell in a tank top for two hours. Whew HAWT! Would I recommend the [FEST Express] to people? Was the trouble in Little China big?”  -John R from Tennessee

“Perfect way to rest, recover from a hangover or meet a new friend. Also great not to worry about getting lost or being late to your flight. -Sean

The [FEST Express] is a lean, mean, punk rock driving machine. Fly into Tampa for cheap, check out Pre-Fest, ride the bus to Gainesville (and back if you want). It’s like Fest is offering to be your guardian angel, dummy.” -The Internet

*You can bring food and beverage on the bus. Just no boozin’ on the bus!!! How old are you fools?!
