Festivals have officially taken over the summer. It seems like every month another one is popping up. Some have been epic failures and some have been successful, but so far all of them have been interesting. Festivals seem to be the wave of the future, some are only one day and some last up to a week. Last month Orion Music & More in Detroit featured both rock, metal and EDM music and brought in a variety of people. I think this model is the way to go to make sure that you pack the place and reach a broader audience. Oakaloosa is taking this idea to a whole new level. They have the most eclectic group of artists performing that I have ever seen. Some of the names that interested me include Girl Talk, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, Jessica Hernandez & the Deltas, Royce Da 5' 9", Kaleido, Mike Leslie Band, Of Mice and Musicians, The Infatuations, Bizzare, and Doss the Artist. That's right kids this Saturday, July 27, you can see Bone Thugs-n-Harmony at the same festival with Jessica Hernandez, I think that's pretty cool. For a full list of the lineup click here.
Tickets for this event are $45 in advance, $55 at the door and $65 for VIP access. Considering there will be over 12 hours of music this is one of the lowest priced festivals that I have ever seen.
