We could not be more excited for the first annual Fool’s Paradise – a funk-fueled destination beach event hosted by Lettuce – at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre in St. Augustine, Florida on April 1 & 2, 2016.When the amphitheatre lights go down, the party is not over. In addition to Late Night events featuring Vulfpeck, Break Science, Goldfish and a ‘Fools of Funk’ supergroup, Fool’s Paradise is excited to announce “Fool Moon,” a new late-night offering at St. Augustine music scene staple (and grilled cheese emporium), Planet Sarbez.Less than two miles from the St. Augustine Amphitheatre, each Late Night will feature blowout sets by Jacksonville powerhouse Herd of Watts; on Friday they’ll be joined by Gainesville reggae-funk monsters Morning Fatty, and on Saturday MANẎFEST will kickstart the night, with Orlando’s rock machine The Groove Orient shutting it down.Building on the energy from their Fool’s Paradise sets (Herd of Watts, Morning Fatty, Groove Orient), these after-dark shows will feature live painting, special guests, and a unique art-house ambience, easily making this a “must” for everyone’s weekend plans.Tickets for the main festival are still available but going fast, with extremely limited VIP and hotel packages remaining. Fool’s Moon will be a $10 cover at the door, separate from festival and package ticketing.
