The second annual Fool’s Paradise, held in St. Augustine, Florida, announced their lineup today. Lettuce and Joe Russo’s Almost Dead top the bill.

Fool’s Paradise, a two-night music festival held at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre in St. Augustine, Florida, will feature two sets from Lettuce, the festival’s host band. Also topping the bill is Joe Russo’s Almost Dead. The Floozies, The Main Squeeze, Organ Freeman and Manic Science, a collaborative effort from Manic Focus and Break Science, will all perform over the two nights. Oteil Burbridge, bassist from Dead & Company, is listed as the artist-at-large. Attendees can expect special guests and many sit-ins from the various performers.


While music is the main attraction for the event, there will be plenty of time for attendees to enjoy the sun and the nearby beaches. Artist-led excursions, including nautical activities, are included as part of the festival. Late night shows will take place at the Elks Lodge next door to the venue and will be announced in the coming weeks.

While the festival does not include lodging, the venue sits in Anastasia State Park, which has several campgrounds. There are other nearby campgrounds as well. Hotel packages will be provided and include transportation to and from the venue as well as VIP tickets. The VIP packages allow access to a small reserved seating area, priority access to the pit, an artist happy hour, discounted drinks, an event poster, an event t-shirt and a ticket to the late night shows.

The event takes places March 31 and April 1. Ticketing information will be posted on the website soon.
