Last year's inaugural DeLuna Fest was as ill-timed as a festival could possibly be, with the Gulf Coast region ravaged by the single biggest ecological disaster of our nation's history. Nevertheless, the festival – held in Florida's Pensacola Beach – came off swimmingly brilliantly with a lineup featuring Stone Temple Pilots, 311, Bush and more.
Barring any more massive catastophes, DeLuna Fest plans to knock this year's event out of the park with a “resort destination festival,” with an impressive lineup set for the October 13th-16th event. This year’s lineup features Jane’s Addiction, Weezer and Big Boi headlining, with Cold War Kids, Ghostland Observatory, Matt & Kim, Stars, Ra Ra Riot, Cut Copy, Manchester Orchestra and more rounding out the bill.
DeLuna will expand on last year's event to feature a total of six stages, with performances taking place on both the beach and the pool decks of the festival’s three high-end resort hotels: The Hampton Inn Pensacola Beach, The Hilton Pensacola Beach and the Holiday Inn Resort Pensacola Beach.
Both the Early Bird and Early VIP ticket packages have already sold out, while two other package deals are still available: the VIP Weekend package, which goes for $800, and the Advanced package, priced at $149.95. What's that you say? We're in a recession?
