Umphrey’s McGee To Headline Whigfest Music & Arts Festival In 2018
Umphrey’s McGee has announced their first tour date of 2018 which will be a headlining slot at Whigfest Music & Arts Festival which takes place February 17 and 18 in Tampa, Florida. Returning after a two year hiatus, Whigfest, as festival organizers describe it is, “a quirky play on the 19th century political party, the Whig Party, which was chosen to echo the American Whigs of 1776, who fought for independence and opposed tyranny. The word “Whig” was then a widely recognized label of choice for people who identified themselves as Patriots, Rebels, and Revolutionaries.”
Whigfest will be staged across two different venues, on three different stages in Ybor City, the main stage and secondary stages opposite each other in the Cuban Club courtyard, with the third staged being located at the Attic Concert Venue held atop Rock Brothers Brewing Company.
