The second annual Fool’s Paradise is set to bring the heat to the St. Augustine Amphitheatre on March 31 & April 1, with genre-bending music from Lettuce x2, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead (with Jeff Chimenti), The Floozies, The Motet, Manic Science (a special set with Manic Focus & Break Science) The Main Squeeze, Organ Freeman, and Oteil Burbridge & Antwaun Stanley as artists-at-large.
Part of what makes Fool’s Paradise so unique is the one-on-one time fans get with their favorite musicians. The event itself is intimate, from the one-stage parameter to the nearby after parties – but there are also opportunities to have even more time with your favorite artists outside of the festival ground. Before the gates open on Saturday afternoon, Fool’s Paradise will offer three artist-led excursions for those in town for a full experience in St. Augustine, FL.
The Shady Horns DJ Set At Sea: Kick back, relax and soak up the sun with The Shady Horns on the Schooner Freedom Charters!
