Fool's Paradise Ft. Lettuce, GRiZ, Vulfpeck have announced additions toan already sexy line-up and concept.
The inaugural Fool's Paradise music festival, taking place in sunny, St. Augustine, Fl. The party will commence over the first two days of April. Earlier this week L4LM and Paul Levine, the two partners that we have to thank for bringing the funk to paradise. Announced a bevy of more funky artist to the line up for a throw down that already would have made James Brown feel fucking great.
In additions to Lettuce & Friends, Chris Robinson Soul Revue (Ivan Neville, George Porter Jr., Eric Krasno, Nikki Glaspie, Neal Casal & The Shady Horns), GRiZ, Vulfpeck,Goldfish, The Nth Power, Break Science, and the Fools for Funk Supergroup, which the members are still a surprise. They added Cory Henry of Snarky Puppy, as an artist-at-large. Electronic future-funk producers, Marvel Years and Brasstracks have also been added to the bill, as well as local favorites Herd of Watts, The Groove Orient, Morning Fatty, and Love Chunk.
These are the type of musicians
where collaborations are the norm, instead of the exception. Grateful Music can't wait to go, dance our asses off and of course see some family. This may be the first year, for this event. But don't worry, it will not suffer the usually hiccups of most inaugural festivals. It's not the promoters first rodeo, with many mystical festivals already on their resumes. Beer Creek and Hulaween are a few that come to mind.
Some of the planned fireworks, GRiZ and Lettuce will join forces for the first time ever, for a full band performance during GRiZ's Friday’s set. Plus you can count on two very historic sets of Lettuce & Friends. They promise once-in-a-lifetime performances, from the funk powerhouses with surprise guests.
They will announce in the coming weeks, the once in a lifetime excursions you get to share with the artist. Plus, plenty of water adventures, sports, workshops, or participate in local activities, with some of your favorite musicians in a personal settings.
Camping options and VIP hotel packages are available, and tickets are on sale now. For more information, tickets, and hotel & camping packages visit: www.FoolsParadiseFL.com.
So get in on this and let's enjoy a weekend of Funk on the beach. I can't wait to see you there!
