Gasparilla Music Festival adds Lucero, The New Deal, Stephen Marley to the 2016 lineup

Some fine new additions have been made to the March music fest.

A few weeks back, organizers of Gasparilla Music Festival revealed the first round of performers for the fifth annual downtown music festival, with R&B grooving, jazz-hawking and hip hop bumpin' songstress Erykah Badu leading the pack with back-up from Greensky Bluegrass, MS MR, Charles Bradley, Talib Kweli, Antibalas, Blitzen Trapper, Kermit Ruffins and Houndmouth among others. 

The next round of artists have been unveiled, and the rather fine lineup has been given further shine and added excitement by way of alt country punk favorites Lucero (which back their 2015 11th studio album, All a Man Should Do), somewhat freshly reunited Tronoto electro rock trio The New Deal, and roots reggae royalty Stephen Marley.

The fifth annual Gasparilla Music Festival takes place Sat.-Sun., March 12-13, 2016. Two-day general admission passes for GMF are $60 (two-day VIP Passes $150); single-day tickets are also offered for Saturday and Sunday, at $40 and $30, respectively (VIP $100 and $75). More info here. Check out the full 2016 lineup so far for Saturday and Sunday here.
