Concerts, like dimly lit chandeliers, are more impressive outdoors and are more enchanting when adorned with strategically placed glow sticks. Light up a summer night with today's GrouponLive deal: for $32, you get one weekend pass to The Javelina Festival at Francis Farm in Rehoboth on August 26–28 (a $65 value). This pass is valid for all three days of the festival.
A three-day celebration of country, bluegrass, roots, and folk tunes, The Javelina Festival showcases up-and-coming musical talent from across the country. More than 16 bands have climbed aboard this year's docket to rescue fans from summer's monotonous soundtrack of chirping crickets and shrill, cackling robins. Among Saturday's melodeers, Boston Globe–praised country-rock outfit Girls Guns and Glory will adorn the fest with rustic melodies and rocking guitar solos, and Girl Howdy will tickle eardrums with the strings of its guitars, fiddles, and upright basses. Sunday’s lineup includes The Hot Club of Cowtown, a Western swing trio with a classic country sound accented by amplified instruments and a tumbleweed percussion section. Visitors can rollick to the tunes and enjoy Francis Farm's acres of history-drenched beauty while standing or seated astride a docile blanket or lawn chair.
