Big Guava Festival

Tampa, FL May 2-4, 2014

The inaugural Big Guava Festival opens an exciting new chapter for Central Florida’s music scene! Taking place over three days, (May 2-4 2014), at the Florida State Fairgrounds and Mid-Florida Credit Union Amphitheatre in Tampa, Big Guava brings four stages of top live acts plus a Monster Midway of free and unlimited carnival-styled rides.

Headliners include Vampire Weekend, one of the most critically acclaimed bands on the scene today; recently reunited hip-hop duo Outkast, Foster the People, whose catchy indie sound has garnered mainstream attention; Cake will bring their unique sounds as will sisters Tegan and Sara. Lay back to the dubbed out rhythms of Slightly Stoopid, then cut loose with the high octane mash-up maestro, Girl Talk. Venerable cult band and fan faves, Violent Femmes, also make an appearance.

Additional performers like Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience, Chance the Rapper, Band of Skulls, Bear Hands, HAIM, Grouplove, and more will showcase a variety of genres and talent at one amazing event! In addition to great music and thrill rides, Big Guava is stepping it up with more than just funnel cakes and cheap beer. Food trucks from all over the Tampa Bay area will bring multiple culinary options while craft beer gardens will provide refreshing libations to the most discerning palates.
