Chart-topping reggae act Stick Figure will be headlining the 1st Annual FloGrown Festival as it kicks off at the Central Florida Fairgrounds on October 1, 2016. The band’s signature sound and addictive, hypnotic rhythms will provide the perfect highlight to a festival that is essentially a one-day celebration of the Florida lifestyle. Other reggae acts set to perform include New Kingston, Florida natives SOWFLO and more.
Dual main stages, an expansive festival fairground and a beautiful lake will serve as the setting for a day filled with music, food, drink, water sports and outdoor activities that make Florida unique. ‘The Beach‘ main stage will feature the reggae/ska sounds of the coastal sandy beaches, while ‘The Swamp’ main stage will rock Florida’s country roots. Festival organizers will be announcing their country stage headliner on August 28th.
Additionally, the ‘Festival Fairgrounds’ will feature the FloGrown Wake Invitational on Lake Lawne, Ultimate FloGrown Truck Meet, Tailgate Nation, Miss FloGrown Contest, BBQ Smoke Off, Yuengling Beachside VIP Party area and more.
Kicking off at 11:00am, tricked out trucks from across the state will roll in to showcase and compete in the 1st Annual FloGrown Truck Meet, sponsored by FloGrown and Truck Fever. The top 3 trucks will be crowned FloGrown Truck Meet Winners 2016 at 1:30pm on the ‘The Swamp’ main stage. A crowning of another sort will be taking place over at the ‘The Beach’ main stage as ladies compete for the title of Miss FloGrown 2016. Lake Lawne will play host to the first annual FloGrown Wake Invitational, as a backdrop to ‘The Beach’ main stage. Five of the world’s top wakeboarders will hit the water and the air as live music rocks the beach.
“Florida is very unique in that it offers the ability to spend the day at the beach surfing and fishing, and by nightfall you can be sitting on the tailgate of your lifted truck in the woods by a campfire. By bringing country and reggae together on one day we’ve harmonized this true FloGrown Floridian lifestyle” says Flogrown founder Jesse Welch.
Tickets for the event are $25 general admission and $75 for VIP. For more information on the FloGrown Festival or how to participate in any of the events listed, please visit http://www.flogrownfestival.com .
