FESTY NEWS: Pass The Good Festival Rages Florida In Under Two Weeks (Curated Music’s Top 5 Must-See Acts)





Way down in the Florida panhandle lays a hidden gem; Pensacola’s Pass the Good Festival. This year marks the third installment of the fundraising-based music, art, and camping festival. Held on 32 beautiful acres from Aug 1-3, PTG features over 50 bands and producers including headliners An-Ten-Nae, Zoogma, Wick-it the Instagator, Vibesquad, & Run DMT and with $85 for a full weekend pass, who couldn’t make the trip to sunny Florida worth it? Incase you find yourself indecisive, take a look at our 5 “Must See” acts of Pass the Good 2014…and then say yes.


1) Skytree

Fresh off his newly acclaimed album Cirrus Sapiens, displaced Colorado resident and producer Skytree will be holding down his intellectual style of electronic music, weaving textured electronic pads with unconventional samples and song-structure. It’s a treat to have him in the area and an absolute must-see.

2) The Nadis Warriors

Coming in from Austin, TX, The Nadis Warriors bring an exceptional live element to the festival with their trance-rock/fusion style. This “live-tronic” group features a rotating cast of players anchored by multi-instrumentalists Matt Cain and Jared Ingebretson. Expect some tracks from their new album “Re:Birth” along with a whole lot of expert improv.

3) Spankalicious

Don’t attempt to categorize Spankalicious. With songs that blend trap, funk, world, and electro into one combination, it would hurt your brain to try. This summer has taken the Cincinnati resident from coast to coast and everywhere in between performing at Wakarusa, Sonic Bloom, and Rootwire all while launching his own record label, ThazDope Records.

4) Skymatic

Phil Ross and Hannah Wilder make up this duo from Atlanta. Featuring production, guitar, and violin, Skymatic adds an organic feel to their electronic grooves that blend effortlessly into something fresh and new. They’ve been on a roll this year and are coming in hot.

5) Jacksonville Up & Comers

This one is not one band. It is multiple. Looking through the roster, only one city has more acts coming in to the festival besides Pensacola itself and that’s Jacksonville. With a rising music scene at home, these acts are primed and ready to dominate the weekend. Hometown heroes S.P.O.R.E., Lucky Costello, Sir Charles, and Monozygotik will all be featured this weekend and all bring something unique and different to the table standing leagues above their heights on the line-up poster.


In addition to the stellar musical acts, Pass The Good is also about the community. For a third year in a row PTG will be donating 50% of the proceeds from the fest to Manna Food Pantries of Pensacola who feeds over 42,000 families on the Gulf Coast every year. This is a great festival for a great cause at an extremely affordable price. Curated Music will be in the house all weekend so be sure to check back with us for all the coverage.
