    Default Big Guava Music Festival - Tampa

    FWIW, yet another music festival scheduled for May 8-9:



    This is in its second year but scaled back from a three-day to a two-day festival. It's entirely a Live Nation production. Early-bird tickets just went onsale for $89 GA, $109 GA pit, and $325 "Super" Guava (plus large TM fees).

    The lineup is okay IMO, but the top two-thirds seem to be mostly derivative of the other U.S. spring music festivals happening this year (seriously though, Hozier billed on the top line?). For my money, I think Shaky Knees is much better choice that weekend if you live in the Southeast.
    Coachella '02, '03, '04, '05, '06, '07, '08, '09, '10, '11, '12 W1, '13 W1&2, '14 W1, '15 W1&2, '16 W1, '17 W1 &/or 2

    I'm surprised Classixx is still playing shows, but didn't get booked at any of the other festivals announced yet, as far as I know.

    The Free Press Summer Fest lineup will probably look pretty similar to this.

    And yeah, Shaky Knees is way better. But this is decent.
    1/19 Still Corners ~ 3/12 Stevie Nicks w/ Pretenders ~ 4/4 Strand of Oaks ~ 4/13 Sigur Rós w/ LA Philharmonic ~ 4/14-4/16 Coachella W1 ~ 4/28 PJ Harvey ~ 5/2 Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers w/ Gary Clark Jr ~ 5/10 the xx ~ 5/13 Brian Wilson performs Pet Sounds ~ 5/26 U2 ~ 6/9 & 6/10 Sigur Rós

    Strokes haven't played Florida since 2006. Closest in recent years was NOLA and Tennessee

    I think I'm going to this. And I like this lineup BETTER than Shaky Knees, although it's obviously not as deep.

    One big single and a good agent is all you need.
