Although September may be poking at all the signs of fall, Fest Season, 2011, IS NOT OVER! That’s right, Blackwater Music Festival is making its second appearance at Spirit of the Suwanee Music Park, with an eclectic line up to keep everyone dancing. Black Water is located far enough south to keep us warm while fall chills set in the up north, but it’s close enough to make the east coast trip totally do-able. Spirit of the Suwanee Music Park is also a necessity for any seasoned east coast festival goer. Surrounded by cypress trees, beautiful lakes, and ample room to dance, Spirit of the Suwanee is a tried and true venue for celebration. Not only does it boast a natural amphitheater stage faced by forests filled with hammocks, but there are also a couple of indoor stages with bars to quench your thirst, several camping areas, and LOTS of natural wonders to explore (don’t be surprised if you find yourself under a waterfall at sunrise). Mark your calendar and make plans to come down to Florida this September and rage it Suwanee style.
This years line up offers a tasteful collection of music that will please everyone from reggae to straight up electro lovers, from young to old, East Coast to West. The ever-impactful Flaming Lips and Ghostland Observatory are sure to keep things brilliant and weird. Buckethead will satisfy the metal heads in us and Zach Deputy is most certain to brighten up the weekend with his special mix of reggae/soul/funk/island/love. One of 2011’s biggest crowd pleasers, Zoogma, will be throwing it down along with Archnemesis and Greenhouse Lounge. Did we forget to mention STS9!?!?!
For those of us in school, a little planning, and a little dedication to get work done early might just earn you the ability to attend this year! Camping is included in 3-day passes, or you can come down one day and buy a single day ticket, without a camping pass. Check the schedule to see when your favorite acts are playing. We hope to see you all there 9/22-9/24!
