Celebrating its 6th year, the Vibes of the Bay Festival presents 20+ acts each summer in Ybor City. The one-day festival, presented by Symphonic Distribution, highlights the best in new and emerging music and has solidified its reputation as one of the best independent music festivals in the Bay Area.
Due to the pandemic, this year we are taking the festival VIRTUAL! We’ll feature a mix of the best independent talent from our community of clients from Florida, Brooklyn, Nashville, Bogota, and the Caribbean. In addition to great sets, Vibes of the Bay will offer a range of activities that go beyond the music such as hosted breakout sessions, trivia, contests, and more.
For all the incredible moments independent music has given us, we’ve decided it’s time for us to give back. This year we will be raising money to help the independent music scene that’s at risk of not making it through this pandemic.
Our fundraising efforts will go towards supporting Tampa Bay’s iconic music venue, Crowbar, and the Save Our Stages initiative by the National Independent Venue Association (NIVA). NIVA is the leading organization focused on helping independently operated cultural and music venues affected by COVID-19 shutdowns and has launched the #SaveOurStages campaign. Without our help, they’re sinking.
Fast. Now, it’s up to us to do our part.
Let’s connect, enjoy some great music for a good cause.
