Sixty types of margaritas in one sitting calls for more than one genre of music, don't you think?
That could by why organizers of the Tampa Bay Margarita and Music Festival have broadened this year's concert into indie rock with Cold War Kids.
The First and Hang Me Out to Dry rockers will join rapper Nelly on the lineup for the festival, which takes place May 25 in its new home of Julian B. Lane Riverfront Park in Tampa. There are still more acts to be announced, but for now, those are your two big headliners.
Interestingly, the last time Cold War Kids played Tampa, it was also at Curtis Hixon Park, and it was also with a hip-hop artist. Back in 2017, they opened for Flo Rida during a free concert as part of the College Football Playoff's national championship game weekend. That show came on a freezing Saturday night in January. Here's betting they'll enjoy Memorial Day weekend a bit more.
Tickets to the festival are on sale now for $17 and up through this weekend, but prices will increase as the event gets closer.
