AURA Announces Official Thursday Pre-Party with The Heavy Pets, Greenhouse Lounge and The Funky Nuggets
AURA Music & Arts Festival has announced their first official onsite pre-party in their five year history. Kicking things off on Thursday, February 13th, fans are invited to get settled in at Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park (SOSMP) a night early and enjoy music from three of Florida’s finest bands in the scene – The Heavy Pets, Greenhouse Lounge and The Funky Nuggets. Tickets are available for $30 and include camping, music and all fees.
The official festival, taking place February 14th – 16th, 2014 features Lotus, Papadosio, Conspirator, Zoogma, The Werks, Marco Benevento, Mike Dillon Band, Kung Fu, Dopapod, The Heavy Pets, Superhuman Happiness, Brock Butler, Jimkata and more. A limited number of tickets are still available now for $125 but prices will increase soon.
Since its humble beginnings in Brooksville, FL, AURA has become one of the premiere multi-day boutique music events in the Southeast US, attracting fans from around the country. Now comfortably at home at the famed SOSMP, AURA comes to life in the midst of 800 acres of Spanish moss-draped oak and cypress trees along the Suwannee River and utilizes one of the most beautiful natural amphitheaters in the country only made more awe-inspiring by AURA’s attention to sound and lighting production. As always, AURA 5 will feature live painters, an interactive arts village, craft and food vendors, yoga & meditation, and inspiring transformational workshops.
Stay tuned for additional details and artist announcements. To join the wait list for cabins, golf cart rentals and RV hook-ups, please contact SOSMP at 386.364.1683.
