The Gasparilla Music Festival has announced dates for its 2021 edition. The Tampa, Fla. festival will take place Oct. 1-3, 2021. Gasparilla is celebrating its 10th anniversary during this year’s edition.

“We are excited to finally get the ball rolling for our 10th anniversary,” said David Cox, executive director of the Gasparilla Music Foundation, in a statement. “We have used our ‘break’ this spring to come up with some new enhancements to improve our guest experience, and we look forward to sharing those as we get closer to October.”

One of those enhancements is that the festival will be a three-day event for the first time in its history, rather than two days as it had been in the past. The event will also take place in October rather than its typical Spring dates, although the festival has stated that it would return to a spring weekend in 2022.

No lineup has been announced; the festival noted it would be revealed over the summer. A limited quanity of “Early Bird” discounted tickets will be available for purchase in May, although no specific date has been announced. For more information, head to
