Jason Mraz, MGMT, Cee Lo Green lead SunFest 2011 in West Palm Beach
Residents of the Gulf Coast may not realize it, but one of the top pop music festivals on the East Coast takes place every year in West Palm Beach. It's called SunFest, it's billed as "Florida's largest music, art and waterfront festival," and given the strength of the lineups they attract each year, it's tough to argue with that description.
Organizers today announced the first round of headliners for this year's SunFest, scheduled for April 27-May 1 along Flagler Drive in West Palm Beach, and there are some great names. Day by day, here's how the lineup looks so far:
April 27: Sublime With Rome, the Avett Brothers, the Supervillains
April 28: Cee Lo Green (above), Jason Mraz, Brooke Fraser
April 29: Mike Posner, Gregg Allman, Taking Back Sunday, Anberlin, Cherry Poppin' Daddies
April 30: Styx, MGMT, Toad the Wet Sprocket, Never Shout Never, Ziggy Marley, Prince Royce
May 1: Jeff Beck, Earth Wind and Fire, Sick Puppies, Neon Trees, O.A.R., Preservation Hall Jazz Band
Expect more big names to be announced in the near future.
Tickets start at $30 for a one-day pass, $46 for a two-day pass and $60 for a five-day pass; or $8, $15 and $20 for kids age 6-12. Children five and under are free. For full details on SunFest, click here.
