The Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, Florida which plays host to festivals such as Wanee, Bear Creek, and Magnolia Fest welcomes an addition to their summer concert series with the Blackwater Music Festival on August 26, 27, and 28, 2010. Nestled alongside the majestic Suwannee River, SOSMP creates the ideal festival atmosphere for nature and music lovers alike. The natural beauty of the park, coupled with an array of talented and diverse artists, makes this inaugural event a must-attend. The music gets started on Thursday with Perpetual Groove followed by a late night set with STS9. Friday includes performances by Michael Franti & Spearhead, G Love, Tea Leaf Green, and a late night set with The Disco Biscuits. Saturday concludes the music with sets by Zach Deputy, Particle ft. Michael Kang, JJ Grey & Mofro, and Slightly Stoopid. Closing the festival with a late night performance is Galactic ft. Cyril Neville.
