The 14-hour-long session will feature veteran Florida-based deck wizards George Acosta, DJ Baby Anne, and Jen Lasher, a veritable dream team of in-state acts. But PURE won't stop at the panhandle. Also on the docket are high-profile East Coast spinsters like New York's Steve Porter, a well-known house DJ who's worked with Sander Kleinenberg; and Evol Intent, a hardcore-influenced three piece who pound jungle beats out of Atlanta. The fest proper will run from 2 p.m. to 10 at the Amphitheater. Afterwards, clubs all across Clematis Street will light up with afterparties that will rage till 4 a.m.
Find PURE at the Meyer Amphitheater at 104 Datura St. in West Palm Beach. Pre-sale tickets are available at puremf.com for just $25; they'll run you $40 at the gate. You can score unlimited VIP access to the fest plus all the afterparties, including a Sunday pool party at the Airport Hilton, for $150. Call 888-202-4011.
