The initial lineup for the 2013 edition of the Aura Music & Arts Festival has been announced and there’s one name that got our immediate attention – RAQ. With both Conspirator and Kung Fu on the bill, the Florida festival took advantage and scored RAQ’s return gig. RAQ hasn’t toured since 2008 and has only played a handful of shows since. No word yet on whether there’s more shows in RAQ’s future.
Other bands set to play Aura, which will be held at Live Oak, Florida’s Spirit of the Suwanneee Music Park on President’s Weekend, include Papadosio, Perpetual Groove, The Heavy Pets, Dopapod, Consider The Source, Newton Crosby, Stokeswood, The Lee Boys and Dr. Fameus.
Another listing that piqued our interest is Kung Fu’s tribute to Stevie Wonder featuring Nigel Hall. Also, we’re glad to see Brock Butler aboard for a solo set and Todd Stoops, Nigel Hall and Roosevelt Collier listed as “Artists At Large.” Tickets are currently available through Elevate Ticketing.
