Big Guava Music Festival's 2015 Lineup with James Blake, Pixies, DFA 1979, and More

Big Guava Music Festival is probably going to make Tampa cool. Like really cool. Last year, they brought the return of Outkast to the state and this year's lineup is looking all kinds of stellar. And along with the music, there'll be plenty of craft brews and "thrill rides" to encourage your fists to pump and toes to trample.

Like you see in the headline, there's everyone's emotional EDM dreamboat James Blake, and the legendary Pixies, and even Death From Above 1979; we once witnessed a riot at SXSW that started when fans tried to break into a DFA show.

This is killer shit. But keep on clicking for equally huge names in the biz gracing the Big Guava stage. And get ready to pick your jaw off the floor.
