Sing Out Loud Festival
St. Augustine’s Sing Out Loud Music Festival, the largest free music festival ever held in St. Johns County, returns for three weekends in September 2017. With hundreds of musical acts over three weekends on multiple stages, including the St. Augustine Amphitheatre, the Colonial Oak Music Park, Mardi Gras, Hoptinger, Tempo Bistro, and many more, the Sing Out Loud Festival is well on its way to becoming a signature event in northeast Florida.
The 2017 Sing Out Loud Music Festival will include performances by Steve Earle, Lake Street Dive, Wolf Parade, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Los Lobos, Lucero, Justin Townes Earle, John Moreland, Lydia Loveless, This Frontier Needs Heroes, and many many more. All the concerts are free, and they will take place over three weekends: September 8, 9, and 10; September 15, 16, and 17; and September 22, 23, and 24.
The second annual Sing Out Loud Festival brings together a diverse group of local and national musical artists, with musical genres that range from Texas outlaw country and New Orleans brass and funk to alternative indie rock, Americana, bluegrass, punk, and more. The inaugural festival in 2016 attracted an estimated 15,000 music fans and featured 315 performing artists. This year’s festival should be even more impressive, with a host of acclaimed national touring artists as well as some of the best talent from St. Augustine’s well respected local music scene.
Presented in partnership with the St. Johns County Cultural Events Division, the St. Johns Cultural Council, and the Tourist Development Council, the Sing Out Loud Festival is sponsored by the Community First Credit Union, which has committed to the sponsorship for the three years.
More details about the festival will be announced soon, including special package deals offered by area hotels, curated artist showcases throughout the festival, and, new this year, artist-focused educational workshops for musicians.
