Lannadoo Festival

The Lannadoo Festival in Jax Beach has become one of the most anticipated events of the year at the Seawalk Pavilion.  This year the Lannadoo Festival was a two day event that included lots of live music, beer, Irish food, games, a kids zone and merchandise!

Lannadoo was responsible for bringing in one of the biggest acts ever to preform at the Seawalk Pavilion….Flogging Molly!  They are described as the “Garth Brooks” of “Irish Music.”  And judging by the crowds…they were right! This festival is free to the public, but you can purchase VIP seating, which is a wise idea!

Southern Sound and Lighting provided the sound and lighting for this event.
