Suwannee Live organizers have announced details for the Suwannee Surprise weekend festival planned for April 16th-17th at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, FL.
The two-day event will feature performances spread out over side-by-side stages from Galactic, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong (two sets), Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, Tank and the Bangas, George Porter Jr.’s Runnin Pardners, LPT, Twiddle (two sets), and Tony Tyler Trance.
Attendees will be able to enjoy the performances from designated 11′ x 11′ pod viewing/dancing areas. Each pod package comes with four tickets for both days plus camping passes and ticketholders will have the option to expand their pod capacity to six people. Guests will also be allowed to bring their own food and drinks to the event.
Suwannee Surprise producer Paul Levine said in a press statement with Friday’s announcement,
We were hopeful that music lovers were ready to attend a safe, socially distanced festival, but we truly had no idea how overwhelming the enthusiasm for Suwannee Rising would be. Although I’ve been planning festivals for more than 20 years, Covid has introduced a whole new level of challenges, one being that we have to limit the size of the gathering. We are not able to accommodate additional guests at Rising, but we were able to get creative and book a second show for fans with equally talented artists.
Pod passes will go on sale this coming Sunday, March 21st, starting at 10 a.m. ET. Head to the Suwannee Live website for more information.
Earlier this month Suwannee Live confirmed the 2021 artist lineup for Suwannee Rising. The sold-out springtime event will be a pod-style edition of the jam-heavy festival over April 8th-10th with performances from Umphrey’s McGee, Lettuce, Goose, Eric Krasno’s Chapter 2, and more.
