Purple Hatter’s Ball Schedule Announcement
Purple Hatter’s Ball is not your typical weekend music festival. The annual event held at Live Oak’s Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park, is put on each year in loving memory of Rachel Morningstar Hoffman — a Florida State University student who was killed in 2008 while acting as a police informant during a drug sting. After her heartbreaking death, Rachel’s mother took it upon herself to create the Rachel Morningstar Foundation in order to educate the public on the risks and complications of using confidential informants, and to inspire legislative action to prevent such tragedies from occurring to others.
Rachel’s love of life and passion for music is the force that drives Purple Hatter’s Ball year after year, and now in its eighth year, the lineup is bigger and better than ever. This year’s festival takes place June 17-19, 2016 and features The Floozies, Papadosio, The Polish Ambassador, Melvin Seals, Earphunk, Dubconscious, Roosevelt Collier Band, Leisure Chief, and many more.
The daily schedule for Purple Hatter’s Ball is out now and includes music on three stages, a late-night Silent Disco to keep the Ball going into the night, a Thursday night pre-party, and a jam packed lineup of yoga and other workshops throughout the weekend.
Check out the lineup below, and make sure to head over to the Official Purple Hatter’s Ball website to get your tickets and for more information including camping and hotel info and to learn more about Rachel and the Rachel Morningstar Hoffman Foundation.
In addition to the incredible music and activities lineup, you can also sign up to participate in an Action Day on Thursday, June 16, with The Polish Ambassador. Participation in the Action Day will not only be an amazing experience and opportunity to give back to one of Florida’s most beautiful live music venues through preparing garden areas, building Waste Management Stations, or learning about soil testing and permaculture, but you will also be invited to attend the Thursday Night Pre-Party for FREE as a thank you!
