The inaugural event promises to be a premier attraction of talent, while showcasing one of our country's foremost vacation destinations, becoming the area's greatest new tradition.

This fall, Nov. 2-4, South Padre Island, Texas, will host the inaugural South Padre International Music Festival. More than 40 acts from three continents are set to perform at more than 10 venues during the three-day festival, in one of America's southernmost coastal resorts.

Other top regional, national and international talent representing genres including Americana, jazz, blues, folk, rock, funk-jam, reggae, world and Latin will showcase on several stages at island clubs, restaurants, hotels and beaches from 2 p.m. to 2 a.m.

The South Padre Island Convention & Visitors Bureau (SPICVB) partnered with Austin-based GamePlan Marketing & Events, LLC, to bring to life the incredible festival, which is expected to draw thousands of visitors and island residents. This rich celebration of music and tropical flavor puts the island a cultural step above its Spring Break entertainment roots; and promises to be the Island's newest annual tradition.

"Thousands of birds and music fans flying South to bask in warm Gulf breezes amidst some of the world's best music: It all happens on South Padre this November," says Tim Hayden, executive producer of the festival. "This will certainly be an indelible memory and enlightening experience for all who attend."

With daily temperatures in the mid- to low 80s and stunning November scenery and activities -- from fishing to water sports, birding to beach combing, miniature golf to movies -- South Padre also boasts gourmet dining, boutique shopping and variety of nightlife options.
