The FEST 14 announces first 267 bands in lineup

Gainesville, FL institution The FEST has unveiled a new website and the first 267 bands committed to this year’s massive takeover of the city October 30th through November 1st. Highlights include Lagwagon, The Menzingers, Teenage Bottlerocket, Off With Their Heads, Banner Pilot and a ton more.

Pre Fest also returns to Ybor City/Tampa for the third year, featuring 75 or so Fest bands, many of whom will be playing special sets of whole albums, rarities and the like. If you like punk rock, PBR, and alt culture camaraderie, this festival is a blast.

Check out last year’s highlights:

And take a look at this year’s lineup so far. Rumor has it that as many as 100 more bands may be added!
