Live Nation to announce major music festival in Tampa

Published:   |   Updated: January 15, 2014 at 09:50 AM

Live Nation says it's set to announce what it's calling the “biggest and baddest” music festival in the state of Florida — and it's coming to the MidFlorida Amphitheatre in Tampa.

The concert promotions giant posted a teaser poster earlier this week on the Live Nation Florida Facebook page announcing the Big Guava Music Festival coming to the amphitheater May 2 to 4. According to that poster, the festival will feature four stages of live music, but it didn't give any hints as to who will perform.

Live Nation is planning a news conference Wednesday morning at the Florida State Fairgrounds to announce the details, including “top name musical acts” and a fair-style midway, a Live Nation news release said.
