DeLuna Fest has added 10 more acts to their September 21 – 23, 2012 lineup. The newest artist additions include Reggae legend Jimmy Cliff, Bob Mould plays COPPER BLUE, Trampled by Turtles, Blackberry Smoke, OFF! and Red Kross. Also added to the lineup are late night DJ sets from Diplo, 12th Planet, Paper Diamond and AC Slater. Last month, the third annual music festival hosted on Pensacola Beach announced headliners Pearl Jam and Foo Fighters with Florence and the Machine, Band of Horses, Dwight Yoakam, Ben Folds Five, Guided By Voices, DJ Jazzy Jeff and many more. A third headliner will be announced in mid-June. For a complete listing of artists announced so far, see below.

DeLuna Fest offers a diverse mix of genres for varying musical tastes. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Jimmy Cliff’s career spans nearly 50 years and his set will only enhance the tropical Gulf Coast backdrop. Fans of '90s alternative rock band Sugar are in for a treat: Bob Mould and current bandmates Jason Narducy and Jon Wurster will perform Sugar's 1992 debut Copper Blue in its entirety. And DeLuna Fest veteran Diplo returns to headline the late night DJ sets for those who want to continue the dance party.
