Connection Fest connects with Jacksonville !! – With he help of giant acts like 311 and Matisyahu


Jacksonville’s second annual Connection Festival was bigger and better than ever – back for a one-day event with two music stages and festivities with some of Jacksonville’s best local food, craft beer, artisans and businesses!

By the looks of the crowd, the festival was a great success, with fans laying in the grass and enjoying the great music being played on the two stages. The weather didn’t not look like it was going to cooperate , but it turn out to be just fine.You could tell the fans of the music and the food where having a great time.

As for the Band, It was a great lineup.

The Main Stage was filled with the likes of  311, Matisyahu, Ballyhoo!, New York Ska-Jazz Ensemble, Whole Wheat Bread, Stank Sauce, Skywater.

Second Stage brought in a lot of up and coming local bands and others such as Los Rakas, Jah Elect, Wester Joseph’s Stereo Vudu, CLoud9 Vibes, Holey Miss Moley, Askmeificare, Flag On Fire,Yamadeo and Herd Of Watts

There were all types of music for all types of people and tastes in music. That is the kind of festival that gets people talking and wanting to come back next year.

The festival also was host to local food and all sorts of artisans and entertainers.

All and all is was a great turn out for a festival in it second year..and I am sure it will be back next year with bigger and better !!
