The music will feature Parker Urban Band, a popular funk band from Jacksonville. Following them on stage will be BIG Something, one of the fastest rising acts out of North Carolina. BIG Something brings a party filled with everything jam fans love – an expertly-played, eclectic mix of rock, funk, jazz, reggae and more! After them, S.P.O.R.E will take the stage. S.P.O.R.E. is a high energy 5 piece Livetronica Jam Band out of Jacksonville that creates and fuzes a unique medley of Rock, Funk, Jazz, Blues, Hip Hop, and Dancy Electronic jams! Then closing the show we have the return of Zach Deputy. Zach was part of Goin Coastal’s first show and brings back his self-proclaimed "island-infused drum n' bass gospel ninja soul." Zach Deputy is a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter based in Savannah, GA and best known for his live looping shows. A crowd favorite, he always sends fans home with a smile on their face. In addition to the arts and music, the festival will feature a line of food trucks, an interactive kids zone, the giant water slide, the Northeast Florida Cornhole Championships, a rock-paper-scissors battle royal, vendors and much more!!!
