DeLuna Fest is heralded as the ultimate end-of-summer music festival experience, taking place September 21 – 23 on the white sands of Pensacola Beach, FL. Tickets go on sale today, Tuesday, April 17th, at 8 am CT/ 9 am ET at www.delunafest.com. More bands, including a third headliner, will be announced in the coming months. A confirmed lineup is listed below.
DeLuna Fest hosts four stages, with two rising directly out of the sand, on the water’s edge of the Gulf of Mexico. Featuring a top-notch musical assortment of national headliners and regional favorites, DeLuna Fest is an easy to get to vacation destination with thousands of hotel rooms, condos and beach houses in close proximity. Accessible by car and boat, and located only 15 minutes from the Pensacola Regional Airport, Trip Advisor names Pensacola Beach one of the country’s top 10 beaches.
The festival’s tropical location fused with top-tier talent and a bevy of festival activities and amenities prompted 2011 headliner Perry Farrell, front-man for Jane’s Addiction, to call DeLuna Fest the “best kept secret in America.” And Popmatters says, “DeLuna Fest is an experience not to be missed.”
A shuttle service will be available for attendees traveling from downtown Pensacola or staying on either end of Pensacola Beach’s Santa Rosa Island. Other amenities on the festival site include two open-air Florida restaurants, mini-golf, a sports lounge with big screen TVs, assorted vendors, and more. Families are welcome; kids 10 and under are free when accompanied by a paid adult.
A limited quantity of advance price festival weekend passes are available for $159.95 and go on sale today at www.delunafest.com through Front Gate Tickets. Once tickets at the advance price level are sold-out, passes will then go on sale at the regular price of $199.95. VIP ticket packages are also available online for $649.95.
