About The Fest:
Beginning over a decade ago with only 60 bands, four stages, and two days, THE FEST has experienced a massive growth rate, now finding the festival almost outgrowing the amazing city it was birthed in. The past four FESTs have sold out prior to the actual event! Last year it sold out in 60 days!!!
THE FEST also finds attendees and bands traveling to Florida from all over the world. Last year 82% of ticket sales came from outside the state of Florida, and 21% were non-US residents.
FEST has had close affiliations and support from No Idea Records, Punknews.org, Pabst Blue Ribbon, Orange Amplifiers, Alternative Press, and many of the independent record labels, fanzines and companies that make up our musical landscape.
