Eclectic, star-studded lineup fills the bill for Huntsville’s inaugural South Star Music Festival

HUNTSVILLE – The idea of a sublime Huntsville music festival is far from ludicrous.

However, quicker than you can blink, John Hunt Park will be the scene of the city’s rebirth in the music world.

To that end, the lineup of the inaugural South Star Music Festival is international in scope and electic in musical stylings.

Festival producer C3 Presents announced today that Blink-182, Gwen Stefani, Shinedown, Beck, Ludacris, TLC, Jane’s Addiction, Sublime and Goo Goo Dolls will top the bill of the two-day event, set for Sept. 28-29 in John Hunt Park. A complete list of performers can be found here.

“I am excited by the incredible level of talent set to perform in Huntsville this fall,” Mayor Tommy Battle said. “We look forward to a successful collaboration with C3 Presents on this inaugural festival and future events that enrich our cultural landscape.”

Battle said the significance of the power-packed lineup help establish Huntsville as a burgeoning destination for live music lovers. He said the festival represents another quality-of-life amenity for music fans as well as an economic driver for the City’s tourism, service and retail sectors.

Huntsville Music Officer Matt Mandrella described the festival’s lineup as a “dream come true” for music fans. He said C3 Presents’ decision to start a new festival in Huntsville speaks volumes about the City’s reputation and trajectory toward becoming a world-class music city.

“The epic scale and quality of product C3 produces will elevate our entire music landscape,” he said. “Artists talk to each other about their experiences, and it’s obvious these artists have all heard good things about Huntsville. It’s an exciting time for music in Huntsville, and we look forward to welcoming music fans and visitors alike to John Hunt Park in September.”

Mandrella also praised C3’s attention to detail and market research, which should satisfy anyone worried about having to choose between football or the festival. To that end, C3 is setting up a massive sports bar for SEC and NFL fans wanting to keep tabs on big games.

Advance tickets for the South Star Music Festival go on sale Thursday; the public sale opens Friday. One-day and two-day passes are available.
