Big Guava Festival announces daily lineup; adds Sleigh Bells, Civil Twilight, more



Single-day tickets to Tampa's inaugural Big Guava Festival go on sale this weekend. Sure would be nice to know who's playing which day, wouldn't it?

Good news: Big Guava has just unveiled its daily lineups -- and added a few new acts for good measure.

The festival's biggest name, Outkast, will headline the Big Guava's opening night on Friday, May 2, along with Cake, Twenty One Pilots and the newly added noise-pop duo Sleigh Bells, above.

Vampire Weekend leads the lineup on Saturday, May 3, alongside Slightly Stoopid, Tegan and Sara and Haim. On Sunday, May 4, Foster the People takes the top slot, along with Girl Talk, Violent Femmes, Grouplove and Walk the Moon.

In addition to Sleigh Bells, the Big Guava Fest on Tuesday added moody South African group Civil Twilight and rapper Jake Miller, along with NONONO, Betty Who and Hunter Hunted.

As mentioned, single-day tickets go on sale at 11 a.m. Saturday for $65 apiece, or $175 for VIP. Three-day tickets are on sale now for $165, or $499 for VIP. (Note that the three-day passes do not include a so-called "Pre-Guava Kickoff Concert" with Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band on May 1. That's a completely separate-ticketed event; tickets to that show start at $41 and go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday. Click here.)

The complete lineups by day (exact schedules have yet to be announced):

Friday, May 2: Outkast, Cake, Sleigh Bells, Twenty One Pilots, Jake Miller, Smallpools, NONONO, Vic Mensa, the Unlikely Candidates, Betty Who

Saturday, May 3: Vampire Weekend, Slightly Stoopid, Tegan and Sara, Haim, Jason Bonham's Led Zeppelin Experience, Blue October, Band of Skulls, American Authors, Hoodie Allen, Bear Hands, Kitten, Jacuzzi Boys, Terraplane Sun, Hunter Hunted, Jessica Hernandez and the Deltas
