St. Augustine's Sing Out Loud Music Festival, sponsored this year by the St. Augustine Distillery, is the largest free music festival in Florida. The Festival returns in September 2019 with a roster of 334 national, regional, and local artists performing in live concerts over the twelve days of the event, at multiple venues downtown and at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre (now called The Amp).
The 4th Annual Sing Out Loud Festival promises to be one of the most exciting and eclectic presentations of musical performances and one of the most significant festivals in northeast Florida, with concerts by country music star Kacey Musgraves, St. Paul & the Broken Bones, Jenny Lewis, Kurt Vile, Shovels & Rope, Son Volt and Aaron Lee Tasjan, The Growlers, Hot Water Music, Propagandhi and Subhumans, GZA, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, the Menzingers, and Dave Hause and Raye Zaragoza. That's just for starters — 289 acts in all will perform at the Festival.
All the concerts are free, with the exception of September 21 Benefit Concert (see below). This year's festival will be held on the four weekends between September 6 and 29, 2019.
This year, there will be donation-based reserved seating available for the September 21 Main Showcase, featuring Kacey Musgraves, at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre. Proceeds will benefit Horseplay Therapy center and Green Hands Community Outreach Initiatives. Tickets are available here.
The 4th Annual Sing Out Loud Festival brings together a diverse group of local and national musical artists, with musical genres that range from bittersweet Americana, socially conscious Punk Rock, and powerhouse Soul to progressive Bluegrass, alternative Country, and Indie Pop. Since its inception in 2016 the festival has attracted an estimated 25,000 music fans and featured over 600 performing artists at over a dozen venues.
