What is destined to become the biggest and best Live Music Festival in all of Florida, Big Guava brings a great line-up of musical stars to the Florida State Fairgrounds and MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre in Tampa this weekend, on Friday, May 2 through Sunday, May 4.  There will be four stages of the best top live music acts, a Monster Midway of unlimited free thrilling and fast paced rides and craft beer gardens along with taste-tempting delights from critically acclaimed food trucks.  There is just no reason not to have the best time of your life!

Already scheduled to perform at Big Guava are: Outkast, their reunion tour with Andre 3000 and Big Boi; Vampire Weekend, considered one of the most creative and critically acclaimed bands in the American music scene today; Foster The People, the popular indie rock trio making atmospheric, psychedelic, and dance-oriented pop; Slightly Stoopid, built on a bedrock of slabs of dubby bass, meditative vocal harmonies, rock-steady guitar licks and tightly syncopated percussive rhythms;  Cake, defying all musical genres to create their own individual sound; Tegan And Sara, with a unique ability to bridge the pop and indie worlds; Violent Femmes, the textbook American cult band of the 1980s who captured the essence of teen angst with remarkable precision and emerged as the soundtrack for the lives of troubled adolescents the world over; Girl Talk, his songs are built on recognizable samples of recent hit singles, recontextualized into an entirely new piece; Earl Sweatshirt, his languid style is a blend of highly personal alt-rap and morbid horrorcore; Grouplove, a merging of richly narrated, intricate songs with anthemic classic pop production; and HAIM, who are able to switch from instrument to instrument, all while singing in three part harmony.

Additional performers include: Twenty One Pilots, Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience, Chance the Rapper, Walk The Moon, Blue October, Band Of Skulls, ZZ Ward, MS MR, Timeflies, Hoodie Allen,  American Authors, Deap Vally, St. Lucia, Smallpools, Bear Hands, Morning Parade, Kitten, Magic Man, Jacuzzi Boys, Gringo Star, Unlikely Candidates, Vic Mensa, Terraplane Sun, Jessica Hernandez And The Deltas, Fly Union and more to be announced soon.


Four stages, tons of bands and that is only a part of the fun and excitement Big Guava offers.  There is also a Monster Midway of fast paced free unlimited thrill rides. And then there are the epicurean delights of the finest and most unique food trucks that Tampa Bay has to offer as well as a variety of Craft Beer Gardens that provide refreshing libations for even the most discerning aficionados.
