Fool's Paradise 2017

  • St. Augustine Ampitheatre

TWO DAY PASSES AND VIP ON SALE JANUARY 20TH @ 10AM

The forecast for the upcoming Fool’s Paradise just got a little sunnier with some very exciting lineup additions and late-night announcements. In addition to the previously announced lineup, the Florida destination event has added funk/dance powerhouse The Motet to the bill, and announced frequent Vulfpeck vocal collaborator Antwaun Stanley as an Artist-At-Large.

On Friday March 31st, Lettuce will kick off their first night with premier Grateful Dead tribute band Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, a special Manic Science set featuring Manic Focus & Break Science, LA-based groove masters Organ Freeman, along with Dead & Company bassist Oteil Burbridge and Antwaun Stanley as Artists-At-Large.

On Saturday April 1st, Lettuce will close the celebration with electro-funk duo The Floozies, The Motet, and contemporary funk ragers The Main Squeeze, with Antwaun Stanley as an Artist-At-Large.

Lettuce, Purple Hat Productions, Live for Live Music, and Silver Wrapper will host the 2nd annual Fool’s Paradise, a funk-fueled destination event taking place in the heart of one of America's most historic cities: St. Augustine, Fla.  Returning to the St. Augustine Amphitheatre, the two-day extravaganza will feature two explosive sets from New York funk masters Lettuce, along with premier Grateful Dead tribute band Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, electro-funk duo The Floozies, a special Manic Science set featuring Manic Focus & Break Science, contemporary funk ragers The Main Squeeze, LA-based groove masters Organ Freeman, and Dead & Company bassist Oteil Burbridge as an Artist at Large. Additional special guests will be announced soon, and several cross-collaborations amongst bands are to be expected.

With music as the main attraction, Fool’s Paradise is a premier destination event like no other. For two days under the Florida sun, there will be genre-bending music, artist-led excursions, and plenty of time for nautical activities just steps away from the ocean. A number of late night shows at the Elk’s Lodge (next door to the venue) will be announced in the coming weeks. Once in a lifetime artist-led excursions will also soon be announced, allowing you to embark on a water adventure, participate in a local activity, and immerse yourself with some of your favorite musicians in an intimate setting.

Thrown in conjunction with the organizers of some of the Southeast’s most treasured festivals, including Suwannee Hulaween, Purple Hatter’s Ball, and more. Fool’s Paradise is set to return to the St. Augustine Amphitheatre. The state-of-the-art performing arts venue is nestled in a beautiful 16-acre section of Anastasia State Park. Campgrounds and beach shores make up this perfect Florida landscape.

St. Augustine is roughly one hour from Jacksonville, one hour from Gainesville, and two hours from Orlando. The oldest city in the United States and fabled home to the Fountain of Youth, St. Augustine’s unique scenery and historical presence sets the city apart from any other in the country. With over 42 miles of beaches, incredible restaurants and bars, oceanic activities, and historical adventures galore, attendees will have plenty to explore during their stay.


The entire venue is General Admission, with the exception of minimal reserved seating. VIP packages will include reserved seating in front of the soundboard, priority access to the pit area, artist happy hour, discount alcoholic beverages, event poster and t-shirt, and a ticket to the late night concerts at Elk’s Lodge. Hotel packages include lodging, transportation, and VIP tickets to the event.


If guests are craving the ultimate outdoor experience, there are two nearby campsites with availabilities at Anastasia State Park and KOA Campgrounds. The city also offers a variety of lodging options.

Derrick Carter

PURCHASE TICKETS HERE

Carter was born in Compton, California and raised in the western suburbs of Chicago, IL. After practicing his DJ skills for a number of years as a teenager in his bedroom (bedroom jock), he then made the definitive step into the Chicago house scene.

In 1988, he released an EP with Mark Farina and Chris Nazuka as the group Symbols & Instruments. While the record wasn't a huge commercial success, it did have a strong influence on the burgeoning ambient techno movement in England. This established Derrick as an international figure in the underground house scene.

Later years
Carter rarely gives extensive interviews and has kept a low profile since his rise to fame. He famously ran a record label named Classic Recordings that (as planned ten years before) ceased to exist after its hundredth release. The 12"es start at CMC100 and run backwards, the LP's & CD's start at CMC100 and run forwards. Above all, Derrick is still respected by some as one of the best house music DJs in the world. His dj-sets are firmly rooted in black music of the 1970s, frequently giving nods to old school disco, soul and jazz.

As a remixer, he has worked for a diverse range of artists includingThe Beloved, The Human League, Ricky Martin, Boris Dlugosch, Modjo, DJ Sneak and Röyksopp. After a brief hiatus, he has recently returned to production, remixing artists like Rosie Brown and Truman Industries.

Taking place at the beautiful Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park (SOSMP) in Live Oak, Florida June 2-4, 2017, the three-day music festival benefits The Rachel Morningstar Foundation (a nonprofit 501c3 organization) in honor of longtime SOSMP friend and music festival lover Rachel Morningstar Hoffman.

The 2017 Purple Hatter’s Ball (PHB) line-up features organic livetronica artist Emancipator, Athens, GA indie-prog band Perpetual Groove, island-infused gospel soul ninja Zach Deputy, The Russ Liquid Test - a new live 4-piece electronic music project from New Orleans, LA that is signed to GRiZ’s All Good Records, the conscious world-reggae sounds of DubConscious - Rachel’s favorite band, the one-and-only sacred steel master Roosevelt Collier and his band, live electronic trio The Malah, twin producer–duo MZG, and many more.
