COX RADIO Alternative WSUN (97X)/TAMPA will present the 97X BARBEQUE MUSIC & ARTS FESTIVAL, SATURDAY, MAY 26th, at VINOY PARK in ST. PETERSBURG, FL. DIRTY HEADS and AWOLNATION will headline the day-long festival. Newly added this year will be an arts portion with local artists displaying their talents.
Commented WSUN APD JENNA KESNECK, “97X is excited to support the vibrant art community of ST. PETERSBURG and expand a festival that has become a MEMORIAL DAY staple for TAMPA BAY’s music scene.”
The lineup also includes JUDAH AND THE LION, AJR, ROBERT DELONG, SIR SLY, LOVELYTHEBAND, as well as local bands.
Added KESNICK, “97X is honored to bring back alt-veterans DIRTY HEADS and AWOLNATION, but excited for some new fresh talent to join the show, as welL. As of this past week, AJR had the #1 song on the alternative charts and 97X couldn’t be more ecstatic to add them to the lineup! This is a band that isn’t going anywhere — they’re just warming up.”
Tickets to the event go on-sale FRIDAY, MARCH 23rd, at 10a (ET) via TICKETMASTER, starting at $29 plus service charges.
