Florida Is Loud Fest

Dec. 16-18, 2016

With a stampede of exceptional heavy bands like Holly Hunt, Yautja, Knife Hits and Nunhex, the lineup alone would've made this new entrant onto the festival landscape a lock. But the fact that such a deafening cavalry could be conjured from a focus on Florida talent shone a big spotlight on our deep well of talent. That a full-weekend, two-venue blowout (Will's Pub and Uncle Lou's) ballooned and coalesced from a pure DIY spirit is testament to the healthy state of the scene.
