AURA Music Events & Brotherly Love Productions are excited to introduce the third annual AURA Music & Arts Festival March 9-11, 2012 in St. Cloud, Florida. AURA 3 will present more than 35 talented acts on two juxtaposed main stages along with a new Brotherly Love Productions Campground Stage, offering over 15 hours of musical bliss each beautiful Florida Spring day. Bringing together some of the best touring bands in the livetronic scene and jam community including Papadosio, Brothers Past, The Heavy Pets, The Malah, Biodiesel and Zoogma, festivalgoers will be treated to a variety of musical styles from rock, funk and jazz to roots reggae, jam-tronica and deep house. As a homegrown Florida event, AURA 3 will also feature the Sunshine State’s most innovative artists including COPE, The Resolvers, ArtOfficial, Fusik, Ketchy Shuby and Aquaphonics, rounding out the genre exploration at this cozy annual event that has quickly become a staple for music connoisseurs wanting to keep an ear to the Florida beat.
In addition to three days of epic musical performances, AURA 3 presents numerous interactive attractions and activities including: yoga workshops; art installations produced live to the beats and rhythms of your favorite bands; hooping and fire poi; food and vending areas; craft beer from Dunedin Brewery; and onsite camping with a peaceful, intimate vibe. AURA 3 will also continue their annual “Recychedelic” program in which campers can earn band merchandise, art, handmade goods and concert tickets, just for helping provide a greener experience.
AURA 3 returns home to Forever Florida, a 4,700-acre wildlife conservation area with an average March temperature of 75 degrees. This pristine site boasts nine distinct Florida ecosystems and an endless array of flora and fauna including alligators, black bears and 200 species of birds. You can fly through the treetops on the Zipline Safari, enjoy a Wilderness Horseback Ride or kick back on a guided Coach Safari. Visit www.FloridaEcoSafaris.com for more info.
