Chris Bell's Antemesaris Rock 'n' Roll People's Party. It's the festival that's not a festival, the gathering of friends that means you meet a lot of new friends, a massive party in the middle of nowhere with great bands from around the region, tons of beer, free barbeque, primitive campsites and a vibe that's on the right side of hippy, the better side of locals-only, and soaked in rock 'n' roll.

UPDATE (corrected location): For 2011, Antemesaris is out in an orange grove – literally – near Center Hill and the Lake/Sumter County border; here are your directions :

  • From Orlando take Highway 50 West through Groveland. Take highway 469 North towards Center Hill. Go about 5 miles to county rd 716 turn right (there will be markers). Follow road to orange groves turn right into the fifth row.
