Thanks to the sponsors and organizers South Seminole Heights Civic Association (SSHCA) and Brew Bus Brewing, another installment of the Heights Unites Music and Arts Festival will return next month.

On February 22, 13 Florida-based bands will play one of the fest's two stages while 25 local artists showcase their work in front of the more approximately 1,500 attendees Heights Unites expects to welcome throughout the day.

Headliners include Miami-based nine-piece funk band Spam Allstars, Orlando “garbage rockers” The Woolly Bushmen, and South Florida rock all-stars Jacuzzi Boys, who've recently warranted national attention. The rest of the lineup is filled out by pop, alternative and hip hop acts like The Hummingbirds, former lead singer of You Blew It! Tanner Jones, Kristopher James, Tampa rapper Rahim Samad and many, many more. 

Not a typical music and arts festival, Heights Unites is celebrated every year in the hopes raising funds for community improvement projects in South Seminole Heights. Both Brew Bus and the SSHCA have made a commitment to endow a $25K scholarship fund that would annually pay out to a Hillsborough High School student attending USF. A press releases says that, "In total the event has raised nearly $20k towards those efforts and the organizers hope to double that number this year."

General admission tickets for Heights Unites 2020 start at $20 and can be purchased at brewbususa.com—kids ages 12 and under get in for free. Check out the full lineup below, and get more info at heightsunites.com.
