DeLuna Fest is proud to announce the 2012 lineup for their third annual music and beach festival, an event the Jane’s Addiction’s (and Lollapalooza co-founder) Perry Farrell referred to as being “the best kept secret in America.
Headliners Pearl Jam and Foo Fighters will be joined by Florence and the Machine, Band of Horses, Dwight Yoakam, Ben Folds Five, Guided By Voices, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Band of Skulls, The Wood Brothers and many more. DeLuna Fest is heralded as the ultimate end-of-summer music festival experience, taking place September 21 â€“ 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 waterâ€™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 countryâ€™s top 10 beaches.
As mentioned above, the festivalâ€™s tropical location fused with top-tier talent and a bevy of festival activities and amenities prompted 2011 headliner Perry Farrell, front-man for Janeâ€™s Addiction, to call DeLuna Fest the â€œbest kept secret in America.â€ And Popmatters says, â€œDeLuna Fest is an experience not to be missed.â€
A shuttle service will be available for attendees traveling from downtown Pensacola or staying on either end of Pensacola Beachâ€™s Santa Rosa Island. Other amenities 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.
