Performing at a music festival, much like playing football, requires you to be hydrated, adrenalized, and properly outfitted with tight pants and a helmet. Get your air guitar ready and amped up with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get two tickets to SouthWoodstock Music and Arts Festival 2011 (up to a $22 value). The festival will be held from 11 a.m.–7 p.m. on Saturday, March 12 at John Paul II High School.
Now in its seventh year, SouthWoodstock is an all-day, annual event featuring top artists in grassroots rock, blues, jazz, and folk music, as well as dance performances, art displays, children’s activities, a car show, and other all-day attractions. One indoor stage and one outdoor stage will delight teleporting melody mavens with dynamic performances. This year’s extensive lineup includes artists such as Drew Tillman Band on blues guitar and vocals, fiddlers from the Tallahassee Youth Orchestra playing folk and ethnic music, the big-band brass-heavy Thursday Night Music Club, King Cotton southern-rock-infused blues, and Beethoven's Revenge, a vindictive string quartet that’s perpetually trying to figure out who took Ludwig’s toothbrush. The festival will also feature dance performances from the elegant and talented Tallahassee Ballet, as well as other twirling troupes.
During set breaks and personal time-outs, festival-goers can peruse the art show, featuring photography, hand-crafted jewelry, and stained glass from more than 20 vendors. Food and refreshments, including beer and wine, will also be available to purchase. Admission is free for children under 10, and a number of activities will be offered for the young and young at heart, including bounce houses and a hayride. Attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs, blankets, and to wear caps stating in 2,000 words or less how Bob Dylan launched the Space Race.
