St Petersburg, FL

WhigFest Music & Arts Festival, Attic Records annual festival, is held every President’s day weekend. WhigFest is a celebration of freedom through art, music, creativity and expression. The festival name is a quirky play on the 19th century political party, the Whig Party, which was chosen to echo the American Whigs of 1776, who fought for independence and opposed tyranny. The word “Whig” was then a widely recognized label of choice for people who identified themselves as Patriots, Rebels, and Revolutionaries.


This February 14th 2015, the 3rd annual WhigFest Music & Arts Festival celebrates independent music and art. 25 artists will grace 4 stages placed strategically in and around Jannus Live, with access to all the stages from the Jannus Live courtyard. The Mandarin Hide, Ringside Cafe, MacDintons and the Main Stage at Jannus will round out the locations featuring singer/songwriters and full bands alike. An art show on February 5th at Mandarin Hide is where the visual arts portion of the festival will unveil their themed art. It will remain on display throughout the festival on February 14th.
