There is no better way to experience Spirit of the Suwannee in style.” – Purple Hatter’s Ball

The three headliners include jamtronica juggernauts The Floozies and Papadosio, and multi-genre DJ The Polish Ambassador (generes include electro, breaks, hip-hop, dub, funk, chiptune, and glitchy IDM). Check out video of The Floozies recent performance at the Suwannee Hulaween festival, and video from Papadosio’s recent show at The Plaza live in Orlando, thanks to The Sober Goat!

***UPDATE 4/19/2016*** Purple Hat Productions has added Jerry Garcia Band founding member and longtime collaborator Melvin Seals and JGB, New Orleans’ prog-funk five-piece Earphunk, the ethereal funk fusion of Flat Land, Miami’s horn driven producer DJ duo Bedside, and roots rock artists Heather Gillis Band, to the ninth annual Purple Hatter’s Ball. It has also been announced that The Disco Biscuits’ drummer Allen Aucoin will join MZG for a live band performance.

***UPDATE 5/27/2016*** Purple Hat Productions has announced that there will be Action Day with activist The Polish Ambassador. ActionDays.us, a platform launched by The Polish Ambassador that gathers musicians and fans to instigate community action, will host a meeting at the intersection of music and activism on the banks of the Suwannee River. Coming together on the day before the festival, on Thursday, June 16, they will bring the power of the people together with purpose. PHB attendees are invited to unite in action and have an amazing time, getting their hands in the dirt and then raising them up in the air, with their choice of awesome activities that build skills, relationships, and tangible regenerative projects that will make Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park better for all participants having been there. As a thank you for their work, Action Day participants are invited to attend the Thursday Night Pre-Party for FREE featuring Sunsquabi, Savi Fernandez Birthday BandSpace Kadet and Gypsy Elise. The projects will go as follows:

Project 1: Restore and prepare garden areas to plant a Food Forest that will nourish the land and people for generations to come.

Project 2: Build multi-purpose Waste Management Stations that reduce the amount of waste, energy, and resources consumed by inefficient disposal practices.

Project 3: Learn about Soil Testing (what is in the dirt, and is it good for you?), Mycoremediation (mushrooms that clean it up!), Permaculture (how plants, animals, and people interact together) and more.

Purple Hatter’s also unveiled the line-up for the Beach Stage, which is located along the wild black-water Suwannee River, and perfect for dancing away on hot summer days, and the late night Silent Disco, which will keep the party going until the wee hours of the morning. Featured artists include Vlad the InhalerSir Charles, Elliot Mess, Combustible and many others.

Purple Hatter’s Ball also features live art, yoga, and workshops. It’s the perfect environment to experience the beautiful Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park festival grounds, famous for hosting Wanee, Suwannee Hulaween, AURA, and more, during a laid-back and intimate event. Festivalgoers are encouraged to take advantage of the park’s endless activities such as swimming, canoeing, kayaking, biking, and disc golf. The park also offers guest comforts including a general store, a full-service restaurant, showers and water stations. To join the wait list for cabins, golf cart rentals, and RV hook-ups, please contact SOSMP at (386) 364-1683.


Earphunk will be there phunkin’ the fest up real hard!!! Check out their full show earlier this year at The Social in Orlando.

The lineup also include’s one of my personal favorite regional reggae acts, DubConscious, hailing from Athens, Georgia. Check out the DubConscious music video for their song “Stereotype.”

The Mantras just finished touring with Papadosio and are sure be a favorite at the festival with their genre-defying blend of electronica, metal, middle-eastern funk rock. Another jamtronica highlight on the lineup is the Denver three-piece, The Malah. I was blown away when I first heard/saw them at the inaugural Bear Creek Music & Art Festival in 2007 and I always enjoy seeing them return to Suwannee. The Malah and DubConscious are regulars at PHB.

The one and only pedal steel guitar doctor himself, Roosevelt Collier, also graces the bill with his band. Roosevelt has been hosting his own small festivals at Suwannee every other month or so known as Roosevelt Collier’s Suwannee Getdown.

Roosevelt is from south Florida and is hardly the only Florida band on the lineup. This event started out as a local fest but has continuously grown and added some banging headliners without forgetting local friends. Also hailing from south Florida is The Hip Abduction (afropop/indie rock/tropical). Orlando’s own Leisure Chief, Kaleigh Baker with The Groove Orient, The Stereo Type and Savi Fernandez Band will be there. Other Florida acts include Catfish Alliance and Trial by Stone (both from Tallahassee and regulars at PHB), Post Pluto (Pensacola), and Jacksonville’s own Herd of Watts, Squeedlepuss, and S.P.O.R.E.
