Ticket sales for the fifth annual Sonic Bloom are underway. The grassoots event known for featuring dozens of electronic music artists, visionary art exhibits, healthy lifestyle oriented workshops, and visual arts performances from around the country has announced an impressive array of live music spanning the three day camping event.
Greensky Bluegrass, Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad, Rubblebucket, and The Brew are the next round of artists added to the 14th annual All Good Festival held July 8 – 11 at Marvin’s Mountaintop in Masontown, WV. These groups will perform the Grassroots Stage, which hosts music in the campgrounds before the main concert area opens on Friday and Saturday of the festival.
Florida is a place unto itself, by my estimation. Like the other ‘big states’ of Texas and California, it takes on its own unique identity and presence. These states are so large, they are their own ‘region;’ and again by my estimation, include elements of all that is around them. Florida is neither just southern, nor merely coastal. Florida has elements of east coast culture, due in no small measure to the strong concentration of New York retirees, the so-called ‘snow birds.’ Florida also has significant aspects of Cuban and Mexican culture elements, as well.
