Rock, Reggae, Funk, Soul, Bluegrass - and the taste of unique craft beers -  come together to get Spring started on Amelia Island when the Goin' Coastal Music Series returns the weekend of March 27th.  Headliners include Matisyahu, Railroad Earth, and the Wailers. (Yes, the remaining members of Bob Marley & The Wailers.) Check out the full lineup here.

Friday night is the kick-off party with Grammy nominee Tim Reynolds,  known for his masterful command of melody and timing and for his uncanny ability to improvise on any instrument he touches. On Saturday, come out and enjoy craft beer tasting from 1pm - 4pm and a full day of music with Post Pluto, The Corbitt Bros., Trae Pierce and the T-Stone Band, The Fritz, Turkuaz and Railroad Earth. Sunday morning starts with  a yoga session followed by a beach clean-up, then, the event goes a reggae with Spiritual Rez, The Supervillains, The Wailers and Matisyahu hitting the stage.  Food trucks, vendors, kids zone, and more will be available throughout.

Select flavors from almost 30 breweries will be on tap.  Insiders recommend that you pair one of your favorites with the Funkadelic Food Truck's roasted beet home fries,  and that you don't miss the home brew competition or the chance to hula hoop while you take in the beauty of being beachside.  The event is presented by two local non-profit organizations, 8 Flags Playscapes, Inc. and the Nassau Humane Society. Funds from the Festival will aid their efforts.
