Big announcement came through yesterday in the festival world!

Their four headlining bands were released — Papadosio, Conspirator, Perpetual Groove and The Heavy Pets — and I can’t decide what is better: that some of my favorites will be raging during the weekend of love OR that the festival is THAT MUCH CLOSER TO TODAY thanks to the date change…
There will be more to come regarding this fest and the acts involved. Read on for the complete press release…
AURA Music Events has announced Papadosio, Conspirator, Perpetual Groove and The Heavy Pets as headliners for AURA Music & Arts Festival 2013! Now taking place February 15th – 17th, the much-loved event will kick off festival season at the renowned Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, Florida.
Set in the midst of 800 acres of Spanish moss-draped oak and cypress along the Suwannee River, the park is a playground for endless activities such as swimming, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, disc golf and biking. The Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park also offers guest comforts including a general store, full service restaurant, showers and water stations. In addition to primitive camping, fans can upgrade their AURA experience with RV hook ups, cabin rentals and golf cart rentals.
Since its inception in 2010, AURA Music & Arts Festival has stayed true to its mission of showcasing the best regional and national touring bands in the underground jam community and live-electronic scene, building an event that brings fans together for a magical weekend. Treating festivalgoers to a variety of musical styles ranging from rock, funk and jazz to roots reggae, jam-tronica and hip-hop, the vibe at AURA is unlike any other festival, creating a community of music, arts, culture and togetherness, and 2013 will be no exception.
