Post Sad day for Magnolia Fest Family
Magfest Family and Friends,
After much thought and consideration, it is with heavy hearts that we announce that we will not be producing Magnolia Fest at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in 2016. Instead we will host a Magnolia Fest 20th Anniversary Celebration in St Augustine at the St. Augustine Amphitheater. It will be a one day event on Saturday, October 15 with a pre-party on Friday, October 14. St Augustine is a beautiful city with wonderful beaches, there are a lot of hotels and also camping right next to the venue, with easy access to the Jacksonville Airport. Details will be released in the next couple of weeks.
Rising costs for talent, production and the inability to negotiate a deal with the Spirit of Suwannee make it impossible to do this event in Live Oak without a substantial increase in ticket prices or a reduction in the quality of the show.
Magnolia Fest has been a magical experience for years and a place for family and friends to come together every fall to enjoy some of the best music in the country. Always cherish those memories.
If you have already purchased camping from the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park, you may get refunds by calling (386)364-1683.

Bear creek moved to New Orleans. Dern EDM untz taking over. I officially feel old.

All of you that don't like panic, they are carrying that southern jam torch with ABB family... Wanee would be down if they were not there imo.

While this can (and will) be argued, one thing I will say is that The people and the vibe at Wanee has not changed after ABB left. If Wanee eventually goes away I am thankful that panic was there to give us a few more years.

I though they would be first. The last few Mag Fests have been better than the rest, The last few Springs have been completely about camping with friends, and not so much about music.
