Harvest of Hope Fest Returns To St. Augustine, Florida for Spring Break 2010

March 12th-14th Alternative Music Fest To Benefit Migrant Farmworkers

This Thanksgiving, support the hands that harvested the food on your table by purchasing a ticket to the Harvest of Hope Fest in sunny St. Augustine, Florida.

The Harvest of Hope Fest is a three-day, multiple stage music festival that raises awareness and provides financial and educational aid to migrant farmworkers all over the country. For a limited time, discounted three-day tickets for the festival are available at the incredibly low introductory price of $29.50.

HOH Fest is the first multi-day concert of 2010 festival season and uniquely different then the copycat lineups you see at other events. Last year over 17,000 attendees rocked out to over one hundred punk, indie, hip-hop, and alternative rock bands. Audiences were treated to Against Me!, Black Kids, Girl Talk, Less Than Jake, The National, GZA, Tokyo Police Club, Propagandhi, Ra Ra Riot, KRS-One, Kool Keith, and many others. This year’s line up, which will be announced in early December, promises over 100+ artists joining together to raise awareness to the plight of migrant farm workers!

Right in time for spring break, the 2010 Harvest of Hope Festival is scheduled for March 12th – 14th. It is conveniently located on the St. Johns County Fairgrounds and offers 90 acres of grassy pasture and trees for limited primitive camping. The festival is an ideal destination for spring breakers, snowbirds, and sun lovers. The Harvest of Hope Fest is located a short distance from historic St. Augustine and the beach and within an easy drive of Daytona, Jacksonville, Orlando, and Gainesville.

Discounted three-day tickets are on sale starting November 23rd for the low price of $29.50 until the festival line up is announced. Proceeds from the charity fundraiser festival will benefit Harvest of Hope Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides emergency and educational aid to some of the hardest working and often overlooked people keeping our agricultural economy moving – migrant farmworkers. Harvest of Hope distributes funds to migrant farmworkers and their families to help pay for food, medical services, clothing, rent, educational scholarships, and more. It is an honor to have such a large group of musicians donating their time and performances to the cause.

Bands interested in performing at the 2010 Harvest of Hope Fest are requested to make a tax-deductible donation of $5 (USD) to the Harvest of Hope Foundation. The completion of a successful donation will offer you access to fill-out our 2010 Band Registration Application and submit their interest to play the 2010 HOHFEST! You can make a donation and apply on the festivals website.

Double Donut Productions is currently working on a documentary on Harvest of Hope Foundation and the first annual Harvest of Hope Fest that took place last year.

You can check out a teaser trailer for the documentary as well as live performances from The Gaslight Anthem, Ra Ra Riot, and Girl Talk on the Harvest of Hope Fest MySpace page here.
