Two-day passes and VIP packages are on sale now.

The two-day extravaganza will feature two explosive sets from New York funk masters Lettuce, along with premier Grateful Dead tribute band Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, electro-funk duo The Floozies, a special Manic Science set featuring Manic Focus & Break Science, contemporary funk ragers The Main Squeeze, LA-based groove masters Organ Freeman, and Dead & Company bassist Oteil Burbridge as an artist at large. Additional performers will be announced soon, and several cross-collaborations amongst bands are to be expected.

With music as the main attraction, Fool’s Paradise is a premier destination event like no other. For two days under the Florida sun, there will be genre-bending music, artist-led excursions, and plenty of time for nautical activities just steps away from the ocean. A number of late night shows at the Elks Lodge (next door to the venue) will be announced in the coming weeks.

Advanced two-day passes and VIP tickets for Fool’s Paradise can be purchased at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre and Ponte Vedra Concert Hall box offices,, all authorized TicketMaster outlets and by phone at 800-745-3000.
