Bayfest Music Festival

Mobile, Alabama, October 4-6, 2013

Join more than 200,000 other music lovers as you stroll through the streets of Mobile's downtown waterfront and take in the sounds of almost every musical genre ever contrived. Nestled among historic buildings and parks, nine stages become home to hundreds of musical acts during this three-day coastal festival that the Mobile Bay Monthly claims surpasses Mardi Gras as the city's best event. Bring your own chairs or find your niche among the crowds. With big-name acts as well as a stage dedicated solely to aspiring new artists, the festival always anticipates a crowd.

Tickets are $60 for the weekend; 251/208-7835 or bayfest.com.
