Complete Gasparilla Music Festival Schedule and Lineup

The Gasparilla Festival is the largest party in Tampa and one of the largest festivals in Florida. For nearly the first half of the year, pirates both local and from afar will arrive by boat in Tampa Bay and take over the city.

But it’s not a hostile takeover. These pirates want Tampa to party, and the rest of the city does exactly what the pirates tell them. The first two months of Gasparilla are pretty subdued, but the bulk of the festivities that Gasparilla is known for occurs in March, including one of their most famous, the Gasparilla Music Festival.

The Gasparilla Music Festival is unlike any other large festival in Florida. Instead of booking big names to fill the venues around town, the Gasparilla employs an army independent and up-and-coming bands to rock the numerous stages that will be up across the city. With so many bands to choose from, and so little time, people will be looking to cram the festival to get a glimpse at up-and-coming stars.

If you need a little help at knowing who is going to play where, here is the complete run-down of bands that will be rocking out Gasparilla, and not only will there be a list, but a schedule of where and when that will perform as well.
