Gulfport Peace, Love & Women Music Festival

Now in its second year, the Festival will be another spectacular showcase of critically acclaimed women performers with rebellious original rock-and-roll sounds to award-winning get-on-your-feet-and-dance R & B. Five of Tampa Bay’s favorite women performers and women-fronted bands will take the stage at the Historic Gulfport Casino starting at 4 pm.

The Gulfport Peace, Love & Women Music Festival was started to offer a venue for seasoned and upcoming women performers to have a place to showcase their music.

Festival headliner The Souliz Band, fronted by local legends Sugar and Spice, earned a place in the winner’s circle at the 2017 International Blues Challenge in Memphis. Souliz delivers a tight, high energy set of R&B, Southern Soul, Blues, and Classic Rock-n-Roll. Also on the lineup will be indie rock singer-songwriter Geri X, funkalicious rock-and-roller DeLaran with Elysian Sex Drive, plus classic blues and jazz from The Patty Sanphy Band, and the complex and inspiring blues of the Julie Black Band. For the first time, the Festival will kick off with a pair of 15-minute sets from winners of the ProSuzy “Let Your Light Shine” open mic series.
Festival tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door.

Order tickets online at Tickets are also available (with no online service fee) at the Gulfport Casino office, 5500 Shore Blvd S, and the Gulfport Beach Bazaar, 3115 Beach Blvd S.

Rain or shine, the Festival will go on in the air conditioned comfort of the newly renovated Historic Gulfport Casino, that offers a full bar, plenty of room for dancing, and great acoustics. Local restaurants Little Tommies Tiki and Manatees on the Bay have signed on to provide tasty Festival foods without leaving the comfort of the Casino.
