Sunfest 2010

April 15, 2010 dazzadiego No Comments

It is hard for bands to come to South Florida since Florida’s panhandle is very out of the way from the rest of the country. Hundreds of times we have seen bands map their world tours and hundreds of times we have been left disappointed to see the schedule cities list with ours omitted. It’s a sad thing for the music fans in this part of the country.
But as all sad stories this one brings some lights among the shadows, enter the good people at West Palm Beach’s Sunfest. Taking off where Langerado dropped the ball last year, the Sunfest is bringing some of the biggest rock acts to our state. Since 1982 the West Palm Beach music festival has been entertaining Floridians and visitors that are not only looking for great bands to check out, but also for the wonderful art exhibits and great food.
Sunfest 2010, taking place from April 28th to May 2nd, is looking all kind of good. Not only will be taking place in the beautiful waterfront of West Palm Beach, but it will bring two of the biggest acts in rock music. During the opening night, Weezer will be playing. Rivers Cuosmo and company will bring their melodies and catchy guitars to Florida after a hiatus of more than 4 years when they were promoting their album Make Believe. Now, after two more albums under their belt, the veteran rock band is ready to rock Floridians once more.
The main dish for me comes during the second night of the festival. The Flaming Lips from Oklahoma will be performing. The Flips are a great psycodelic rock band that put so many props in their concerts that makes them unforgettable. I’ve seen this band four times in the past, and can’t wait to see them at this year’s Sunfest. Nice grab Sunfest! One bummer is, though, that the Flips are going to be conflicting with rock and roll legends ZZ Top. I’ll try to catch them both somehow.
