Announced with much fanfare recently by the City of Orlando and Festival Republic, this Fall’s newest music Festival Orlando Calling announced the schedule of artist sets which features full headline sets from The Killers (Saturday) and the only Florida show all year by Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band (Sunday) with Kid Rock, their first time ever sharing a major live engagement.

 

Orlando Calling will be a weekend long action-packed festival set in America’s entertainment playground of Orlando, Florida at the world famous Citrus Bowl Park. Featuring four stages of American Artists, Orlando Calling will present platinum-selling marquee acts, icons from the genres of Blues, Country, Rock, Alternative, Nu Folk and R&B.  The Festival will also showcase exciting young talent emerging from the Central Florida area and across the nation.  Tickets and ticket packages are on sale now at www.orlandocalling.com

 

The Festival will feature full sets from its headline artists.  The Killers, will perform a rare US show, their first public appearance in over two years, as Saturday night’s headline act.  Sunday night’s headliner, Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band, will perform on an outdoor festival bill for the first time in decades, and for a rare and unique Festival appearance, Kid Rock will join the bill. Other artists will include seminal indie rock acts The Raconteurs and Pixies, and the popular folk rock ensemble, The Avett Brothers.

 

Main stage Headliners will be the only action on the main stage during their headline set – but during the weekend, Festival fans will be able to experience all the action from multiple stages and performance areas in a way that is accessible, inclusive, and designed as a shared celebration of American music heritage and culture.  Additionally, a  ‘coffee house’ venue will spotlight traditional folk, bluegrass, jazz and other legacy artists, and will promote the work of local and regional artisans, visual artists, and craft vendors.  

 

Fans will be able to enjoy a downtown music festival in a major regional hub, utilizing local hotel accommodations and free and frequent shuttle bus service directly from downtown to the festival site at the Florida Citrus Bowl Park. Additional late night shows and other activities are planned throughout the weekend in Downtown Orlando.
