Sublime will headline the first-ever Brightside Music Festival, taking place Saturday, April 27th, at Central Florida Fairgrounds in Orlando, Florida. Other acts on the bill include 311, Goldfinger, Story of the Year, Face to Face, Save Ferris, Unwritten Law, Zebrahead, and more to be announced.
The festival gig will mark one of the first few performances for the reunited Sublime, featuring original members Bud Gaugh and Eric Wilson alongside singer-guitarist Jakob Nowell (son of late frontman Bradley Nowell). The band played an intimate Los Angeles benefit show in December, and are also slated to perform at Coachella’s two weekends in April.
Tickets start at $69, and will be available beginning Friday (February 2nd) at 10 a.m. ET via the official Brightside Music Festival website. A craft beer sampling can be added on for $10, while VIP tickets start at $199 and include access to designated areas with shade, upgraded restrooms, and an exclusive bar.
“This is one of those events you just get that feeling, something special is about to happen,” stated event co-producer Cameron Collins of Brew Ha Ha Productions. “The stars aligned perfectly on this festival and I’m absolutely stoked to be doing this with Sublime, 311, Goldfinger and the whole lineup in Orlando, Florida. The energy from the crowd singing along to every word at this one is going to be electrifying!”
