The international music festival will be spread out over more than 10 venues across the island giving music fans a chance to spend their Halloween weekend on warm, white sand beaches surrounded by turquoise water with windsurfing, kiteboarding, scuba diving, sea kayaking, deep-sea fishing and a vibrant nightlife in the 70-degree breeze.
“If you are looking for a tropical fall getaway, then SPI Music Fest is it,” says SPI Music Fest founder Tim Hayden in a statement. “We have artists coming from around the world that represent many genres and a variation of music and culture that makes SPI Music Fest incredibly unique festival experience.”
Three-day, weekend passes are available at an early-bird discount rate of $70 plus tax and service fees until August 24. A portion of the ticket proceeds will go to help benefit hurricane Dolly relief efforts in the Rio Grande Valley.
