June 19, 2012 (Pensacola Beach, FL) – Two-time Grammy Award winners and multi-platinum artists Zac Brown Band have been added to the 2012 DeLuna Fest lineup. Set upon the sandy white beaches of Pensacola Beach, FL, Zac Brown Band will take DeLuna Fest’s oceanfront main stage the weekend of September 21 – 23, 2012. Also joining the lineup are Fitz and the Tantrums, Honey Island Swamp Band, The Canvas Waiting, Astronautalis, High On Fire, Brass-A-Holics and a Sunday Gospel Brunch set from The Legendary JCs. A daily schedule of music as well as additional amenities and activities are yet to be announced.
Providing more than 60 bands of diverse mix and genre, DeLuna Fest offers a festival experience unlike any other. Attendees are invited to rock the beach with previously announced headliners Pearl Jam and Foo Fighters, raise a cold beverage in toast to reggae legend Jimmy Cliff, and relish in the warm ocean breezes and sounds of Florence and the Machine, Band of Horses, Dwight Yoakam, and Ben Folds Five. Cap off each night with beachside dance parties hosted by DJ Jazzy Jeff, Diplo, and more. See below for a complete listing of artists.
Heralded as the ultimate end-of-summer music festival experience, DeLuna Fest boasts four stages, two rising directly out of the sand, and is located on the water’s edge of the Gulf of Mexico.
