Earthdance Florida Prepares For Annual Festival Gathering In Lakeland

As part of the largest global synchronized dance event in history, Earthdance Florida is excited to announce its 7th annual gathering; a four-day festival of art, music, and energy in Lakeland, Florida. The festival, which runs from September 17th through September 20th, 2015, features world-class and local talent ranging from jam bands to top electronic dance performers, visionary artists, and circus performers.

The festival consists of 3 live stages and several interactive areas. Music headliners include Desert Dwellers, Kalya Scintilla + Eve Olution, MC Armanni Reign, Kimball Collins, Mobius 8, Kaminanda, AK1200, Nominus, Space Jesus, Subsqwad, Wala, DJ Fixx, Keith Mackenzie, Hydraulix, Greenhouse Lounge, Come Back Alice, Copious Jones, the Funky Nuggets and more to be announced.

Unique to the event is the across the globe recitation of a Prayer for Peace at the same moment. Earthdance Florida’s prayer for peace will occur on Saturday evening at 7 p.m. Dixons Violin will sound off the Prayer for Peace followed by another sacred performance by Kaminanda.

Tickets, which are already selling out, also help to promote a local charity through sales. This year, $ 1 of every ticket sold will be donated to Earthdance International (501c3). Additional proceeds go to the George W. Jenkins Community of Hope, directly helping local families who are struggling with homelessness in the areas of Lakeland, Florida and Polk County.

Within our global community of sharing peace with dance, we are creating a themed landscape tale where people can come together to be co-creators in our story. This heightens our creativity, brings us closer together, and transforms our lives. Everyone is a part of our story. From the performers, to our staff, vendors and participants we are all a part of our creative transformation. Like a cosmic web, together we are spreading our love in infinite directions through our natural creative forces. States Belinda Pettinato, Founder and Producer of Earthdance Florida.

When asked about her inspiration for creating an event like this, Belinda responded, “I grew up going to the theatre with my parents, taking dance classes, and playing the piano and guitar. Music and the arts have always held a close place to my heart and inspired me growing up. After I started helping produce EDM focused events and festivals seven years ago, I felt that there could be so much more to the attendees experience. As we grew our network and became more involved with all the different types of music, arts, health, and festival communities around Florida we started to add more variety and culture to our production.”

The entertainment for this year’s festival will highlight over 25 local and national visionary and graffiti artists, as well as live artists, interactive art installations, an art gallery, earth mandala, and co-creator art wall. Over 75 International, National, and local Bands and Djs, with music styles varying from rockin’ jam bands to funk and electronic dance music, will be performing alongside a professional dance lineup that celebrates dance of all kinds from aerial sky dancing, b-boy breakdancing, hoop dancing, and fire and circus acts galore. Over 40 workshops will be offered all inclusive throughout the festival in three workshop spaces focused on flow arts, yoga, energy and healing, and earthskills.

One of over 300 festival locations participating worldwide, the event consists of three multi-genre music stages, a visionary art gallery, art installations, various workshops and encourages participants in theme camping. This year’s global theme is “Awakening”, with the local Florida chapter theme being “Rise of the Kundalini”. The event also plans to have seven “Chakra Activation Centers” for festival goers to journey through, each acting as an interactive themed landscape environment.

Steel Magnolia, October 2, CHASE Stage

Steel Magnolia is country musics hottest new duo. Meghan Linsey and Joshua Scott Jones proved to be a winning combination in winning CMTs Can You Duet? Their first single — the Top 5 hit, Keep On Lovin You, — introduced country radio to the duos fresh sound, earning them two 2010 Academy of Country Music Award Nominations, as well as two 2010 CMT Music Award Nominations a mere eight months after launching onto the music scene. Our voices blend uniquely, Josh says of the Steel Magnolia sound. Meghan has more of a low end and my voice is kind of in a little higher register, which normally isnt the case with a male/female duo. Its usually the other way around. So its a weird blend, but it works. Its country with our own edge.

Sister Hazel, October 9, CHASE Stage

Sister Hazel began when Ken Block started playing with Drew Copeland around Gainesville in the early ’90s. They added Jett Beres on bass, guitarist Ryan Newell and drummer Mark Trojanowski. The band struck gold with their chart-topping hit, “All For You.” Over the years the band has sold more than two million albums and had six top 30 singles; they earned a platinum disc with 1997’s Somewhere More Familiar and gold with 2000’s Fortress. “We’re getting to live a dream,” Copeland proclaims. “As kids, we grew up thinking, ‘Man, one day I am going to be a rock star!’ and man, we are getting to do that. And we don’t take that for granted.” Their latest album, Release, debuted on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums Chart at #37, the highest chart number ever attained by any of the band’s albums on that chart. Release also hit #3 on the Billboard Indie Chart and #14 on the Billboard Digital Album Chart. On release day, the album went all the way to #1 on the iTunes Rock Chart and #7 on the overall iTunes sales chart.

The Hunt Family, October 2, CHASE Stage

The Hunt Family is a cross between World Ranked Step Dancers and Champion Fiddlers. They are a family of nine that brings a high-powered energetic and refreshing experience to the stage. They perform original, Celtic, bluegrass, inspirational and popular tunes, offering a unique blend of diversity to every show. Their latest CD, Hearts Held High, is available now and features eight exciting brand new original compositions. The Hunt Family has completed four US tours and performed at places such as The Tony Danza Show, the World Championships for Irish Dance and Virginias Royal Welcoming for Queen Elizabeth in Richmond, VA.

The Band Perry, October 7, CHASE Stage

“Daddy rocked us to sleep with the Rolling Stones; Mama woke us up with Loretta Lynn. So we get it honest.” — Kimberly Perry

Inheriting a cross-pollinated love of country and rock & roll from their parents, The Band Perry — siblings Kimberly, Reid and Neil Perry — say that they bleed the bright red blood of American music. The three have always felt the drive to perform and create music, beginning when Kimberly strapped on her first Gibson guitar and fronted her first high school band — at age 15, employing Reid, then 10, and Neil, only eight, as her roadies. In July of 2005, the siblings decided to join forces as one band. The Band Perry was then invited by the Coca-Cola Bottling Company to open all of the dates on their “New Faces of Country” tour that year. They caught the ears of Republic Nashville and signed to the new label in the summer of 2009.

Blues Old Stand Featuring Brady Blade, Jr., October 8, CHASE Stage

Blues Old Stand is a Southern funk n’ roll band that established itself as one of the early “Jam Bands” of the 90s. The music is based in the blues, funk and soul of the fathers of groove, with musical influences ranging from Muddy Waters to Curtis Mayfield.

Brady Blade Jr. has joined Blues Old Stand both on the stage and in the studio on various records produced by BLADE Studios.

Blues Old Stand has shared the stage with everyone from Ben Harper to Buddy Guy, from Widespread Panic to the Allman Brothers. They have been an accompanying band for many blues greats including Hubert Sumlin, Bob Margolin, Johnny Shines and Kent Duchaine. The unique blend of tone, and vast and diverse song list of original and cover songs, make Blues Old Stand a festival favorite.

Dirtfoot, October 9, CHASE Stage

Whether performing on big stages at festivals, or playing intimate settings in pubs and the finer taverns all over the Midwest & South, Dirtfoot puts on an uproarious show. The crowds come to take part in the fun and chaos, hollering to all the calls and responses, shaking their bean cans, and getting down with the infectious grooves. There is only one Gypsy Punk Country Grumble Boogie band in the land Dirtfoot.

Led by the organic writings of Matt Hazelton with each player adding his own flavor and feeling to the songs and sound of the group, Dirtfoot is a blend of eclectic styles, as well as diverse personalities. All of their instruments are acoustic, but their energy and ingenuity will make you swear they are plugged in. Featuring instruments ranging from an acoustic guitar, banjo, upright bass, pots n’ pans, drums, bells, saxophone, xylophone and more, this band has a truly engaging sound, a real dose of Gypsy, Punk, Country, Grumble Boogie!
