Purple Hatter’s Ball has added several new artists to the line-up including: Colorado’s dance-funk seven-piece The Motet; electronic producer/guitar player and drummer duo, The Floozies who are performing at Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park for their first time; the infectious soul-funk of The Fritz; and the inspiring soulful sounds of Avis Berry & Scott Campbell Band, as well as Yankee Slickers, Famato and Universal Green.

Taking place May 9 - 11, 2014 at the famed Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, Florida, the three-day music festival honors the memory of longtime friend of SOSMP and music festival lover Rachel Morningstar Hoffman. The 2014 event also features a diverse line-up of artists including: experimental world fusion performers Beats Antique; Emancipator Ensemble, a four-piece live band that builds on Emancipator’s original trip-hop downtempo production; England’s funky four-piece The New Mastersounds; dynamic genre-bending rock band The Heavy Pets; soul-music super group The Nth Power; the conscious world-reggae of DubConscious; Space Capone’s retro disco-funk; multi-instrumentalist sisters Rising Appalachia; bass-driven  live electronic trio Greenhouse Lounge, and more.

For the first time, Purple Hatter's Ball will also offer more scheduled activities including healing and arts workshops, yoga, massage, hula hooping, painting and more, as well as a Silent Disco. Taking place during the springtime, the venue itself is a virtual playground with endless fun and activities such as swimming, canoeing, kayaking, disc golf and biking. The park also offers guest comforts including cabins, general store, full service restaurant, showers and water stations.

Advance tickets are currently available for $85 at www.PurpleHattersBall.com and include three days of music, primitive camping and all taxes and fees. The Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park is also generously offering a deeply discounted cabin and golf cart rental package to Purple Hatter’s guests.
