Following the overwhelming success of the 2010 event, the second annual AURA Music & Arts Festival will take place January 14-16, 2011 at Crescent J Ranch in St. Cloud, Florida. AURA will present 34 bands on two juxtaposed stages with zero overlap and 20 DJs in the Rage Tent, offering 18 hours of musical bliss each day. Bringing together some of the best touring bands in the underground jamtronic scene and jam community including Papadosio, The Heavy Pets, The Malah and Zoogma, festivalgoers will be treated to a variety of musical styles from rock, funk and jazz to roots reggae, jam-tronica and deep house.
In addition to three days of epic musical performances, AURA presents numerous interactive attractions and activities including song writing, drum and yoga workshops; art installations produced LIVE to the beats and rhythms of your favorite bands; hooping and fire poi; food and vending areas; and onsite camping with a peaceful, intimate vibe.
AURAâ€™s new site, Forever Florida, is a 4,700 acre wildlife conservation area with an average January daily temperature of 70 degrees. This pristine site boasts nine distinct Florida ecosystems and an endless array of flora and fauna including alligators, black bears and 200 species of birds. You can fly through the treetops on the Zipline Safari, enjoy a Wilderness Horseback Ride or just kick back and relax on a guided Coach Safari.
