SunFest Announces Impressive 2015 Lineup With Pixies, Kaskade, Wilco, ScHoolboy Q

West Palm Beach's annual five-day downtown cultural jamboree, SunFest, returns in 2015 with what we can honestly call an impressive lineup.

Each year (for 33 years), the list of performers serves to satisfy the tastes of more than just the 20- to 25-year old raver crowd. Organizers always are clever about who they book. Since the crowd's demographic includes every age from babies to great-grandparents, the acts reflect all ages and tastes that attend, including the youngest millennials.

This year, though, it seems SunFest has done a particularly interesting job with its list of musicians. Click on to make some impressive-sounding sounds while reading the full register.
