Deluna Festival is in its third year and back with the biggest line up yet. We couldn’t be more excited to get on the gulf coast for another 3 days of epic music! This festival is particularly important to me because I will get to see PEARL JAM, who have been my favorite for a good 10 years now. Additionally, the Foo Fighters, Florence & the Machine, Jimmy Cliff, Band of Horses, DJ Jazzy Jeff and Ben Folds Five are all huge names I have never been able to see. If that wasn’t enough, 12th Planet, Bad Brains, Paper Diamond, Dumpstaphunk and Diplo are all there to kick the party up a couple of notches.
If you are unfamiliar with the festival, here is a little history lesson for ya!
“In 1559… After surviving a treacherous journey across ferocious seas, Spanish conquistador Don Tristan De Luna made landfall on what we know as Pensacola Beach, FL. Upon landing, De Luna and his crew threw a party. It was (literally) the beach party to end all beach parties since the settlement was blown away by a hurricane a few months later.In 2010… America’s original beach party was officially revived with the launch of DeLuna Fest. For three-days, music fans can dance on the sugar white sands of Pensacola Beach, revel in a diverse mix of live beach-friendly bands and musicians, and admire Florida’s breathtaking sunsets. DeLuna Fest celebrates Pensacola’s rich heritage and raises a toast to America’s original settlement.
DeLuna Fest returns September 21 – 23, 2012 with four stages (two directly on the Pensacola Beach sand) and a top-notch display of live music featuring a diverse blend of genres.
Built on the Gulf of Mexico shoreline, DeLuna Fest is the ultimate end of summer beach music festival!”
