End of Year Music Festivals - 2014

We're heading into the fall season and before you know it, the end of the year will be here. For the next few months, we'll be planning for upcoming holidays and in-between those special days, there's still a lot of music to be heard around the state from coast to coast.

September has Labor Day festivities going on at the beginning of the month and will end on a high note with Motorhead's Motorboat 2014 September 22-26, in Miami. This is a mega concert on board a cruise ship with staterooms, dining, activities, casino, pool, and a musical line up that will have you rockin from dusk to dawn. Megadeth and Motorhead will get the party started.

October has the Coral Skies Music Festival the 25th and 26th in Tampa at the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre and in West Palm Beach at the Cruzan Amphitheatre. Two stages will feature artists including Cage the Elephant, Tokyo Police Club, Bombay Bicycle Club and The Hold Steady. Food trucks and craft beer will be on hand. Tickets are $20.

The Fest 2014 is scheduled for October 31 (All Hallows Eve) through November 2 in Gainesville. There's a long list of musical entertainment for this event. Tickets are $100.

Two festivals lined up for November are the Electric Daisy Carnival Orlando 2014 scheduled for November 7-8 at Tinker Field. This event combines dance with music so you have both an audio and video experience.

The second event is the Bear Creek Music and Art Festival 2014 in Live Oak at the Spirit of the Suwannee Park slated for November 13-16. An interesting lineup of musicians covering music genres across the board will provide ongoing entertainment throughout the festival. Tickets range from $60-$245. Camping is available.

If you can add any of these festivals to your itinerary, you won't regret it. Get your music vibe on and make your journey to end the end of the year by listening to an array of talented artists. Each one provides a jump-start for the upcoming 2015 season that promises even more toe tapping tunes.
