The 84th annual Florida Strawberry Festival kicks off on February 28 in Plant City, but music fans can start buying tickets to the fest's concert series on December 6. That's today!

Highlights on the bill include Willie Nelson (playing March 1), Steven Tyler and Nashville's Loving Mary Band (March 3), Martina McBride (March 3), Needtobreathe (March 5) and Styx (March 6).

Holy rollers can spring for tickets to see For King And Country (March 7), and anyone looking for some sexy time can wait until March 9 when Keith Sweat takes the stage.

Some shows are free, but most tickets range from $20-$55 and are available online. Phone orders are being taken at (813) 754-1996, and walk-up sales happen at the festival's ticket office located at 2209 W. Oak Avenue in Plant City.

Remember, you need a ticket to the actual festival on top of the concert ticket, but advance stubs are just $4 for kids up to 12 years old and only $8 for old people like us.
