Temperatures rose into the high 80’s on the final day of Rockville 2018 in Jacksonville Florida as veteran rock bands dominated the roster. The Foo Fighters turned in the best set of the festival stretching more than two hours, past the official festival. Billy Idol and his band also turned in a set of classic rock hits.
It was another gorgeous spring afternoon in Jacksonville on Saturday, April 28, the second day of 2018 Welcome to Rockville Music Festival. A bigger audience than the day before flowed into the festival early on. By the time the Swedish heavy metal band Avatar hit the main stage in the early afternoon, a large crowd had already formed. One of the only groups on the roster from Europe, these colorful musicians have been keeping Glam rock alive in their unique way, since 2001.
New York-based americana artist Greg Jacquin shares the video for "Floating" via Pure Grain Audio, who writes about the track, "'Floating,' is a lazy but upbeat tune that whisks the listener away to a nearby stream on a warm, sunny day."
"Floating" is the second track off Jacquin's recently released Hudson River LP. In Jacquin's own words, "'Floating' is a song about having to move back to the town you grew up in after years of falling out of touch with everyone and everything."
