This past weekend, Apollo WorldWide help to create a 3 day music extravaganza: “Jacksonville SuperFest.”

FRIDAY: The weekend began Friday April 13th,  with a VIP Launch party at aloft Hotel. Guests were invited to share a night of music, free food, drinks and a few performances from local artists. The party began at 8pm and went well into the night. Guests were also treated to a red carpet photo shoot when they arrived on the scene.  I had the opportunity to volunteer with this event and it was amazing. I enjoyed the experience and loved networking with many people in the entertainment and music industry.

SATURDAY & SUNDAY:

Location: University of North Florida.  Student parking Lot 18 went through a transformation after several stages and vending tents were set up for the music festival. Food vendors were present along with various arts and crafts vendors selling everything from handmade jewelry to Tye-dye chic sun dresses. The festival was also family friendly, offering face painting and a moon bounce slide for the younger kids in attendance. It was good to see a diverse crowd to match the diverse range of music offered at the event.
