Bear Creek Music has announced that Bear Creek Music & Art Festival will return to Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park (SOSMP) in Live Oak, Florida on a new weekend, moving from mid-November to October 1 – 4, 2015. Hosting Bear Creek earlier in the fall is expected to provide warmer weather for fans.
Steeped in the tradition of New Orleans and New York funk music, Bear Creek’s line up always provides an eclectic mix of artists and powerful big bands like The Roots, Bootsy Collins, Umphrey’s McGee, Galactic, Lotus, Dumpstaphunk and Lettuce along with genre-defining performers in world and roots music, live electronic, rock, and everything in between. As is tradition at Bear Creek, many of the bands perform on two separate dates during the weekend and several talented instrumentalists act as artists-at-large, creating memorable surprise sit-ins and inspired performances. Bear Creek also features live art, yoga and workshops, along with a charity food drive and disc golf tournament.
Recognized as one of the most beautiful live music venues in the country, Bear Creek goers at SOSMP can enjoy music on three outdoor stages and one indoor stage including the famed Amphitheater Stage, set in the midst of towering pine and oak trees decorated with Spanish moss. The park also offers guest comforts including a general store, full-service restaurant, showers and water stations.
A limited number of early bird tickets will go on sale Monday, March 30 at 10 am EST. To join the wait list for cabins, golf cart rentals and RV hook-ups, please contact Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park at (386) 364-1683. Stay tuned for the phase 1 artist announcement!
