Florida sometimes gets a bad rap nationally, but here in Orlando, we’re of the opinion that most of the country is jealous. And why not? We have the shining sun, beautiful beaches and great events like these listed below to be proud of!


“Florida Man” is an infamous twitter account about “the world’s worst superhero,” that simply retweets any headline that begins with the words “Florida Man.” This results in tweets like “Florida Man arrested for riding alligator down Main street” or other bizarre and hilarious stories. Yes, those stories come from Florida. But so does incredible fun and good times in the sun all year round. That’s why the Florida Man Music Festival is reclaiming the term “Florida Man” with great music and one of the best parties of the year. Presented by FM 101.9, Orlando’s NEW Alternative radio station, this all-day concert takes place on November 22 at the Orlando Amphitheater and will feature The 1975, 311, Jimmy Eat World, The Revivalists and many, many more performers. If you love high energy power pop this is absolutely the best place to be this November!
