Pensacola, Fla. – Aug. 14, 2017 – Fiesta of Five Flags is excited to announce the 2017 Pensacola Seafood Festival entertainment lineup.  Get ready for three days filled with a wide array of musical acts. Below is a taste of the renowned headliners and emerging artists to take the Bartram Park main stage.

Troy Cartwright, a Dallas native, will kick off our Friday night in Bartram Park. Cartwright began his musical journey in 2015, releasing his debut album and cracking the top 25 on the Texas Music Chart. His new release, “Don’t Fade,” showcases Cartwright’s growth as a writer and performer. The Dallas Observer called his record “one of the very best of 2015.”

Friday, Sept. 29th at 5:30p.m.

Headlining Friday night is Brooke Eden. Her stand-out track, “Act Like You Don’t,” was heralded as “powerful” by The Huffington Post, and received over five million streams on Spotify. Eden has been named one of Vogue’s “10 Country ‘It’ Girls,” one of CMT’s Next Women of Country, PEOPLE’s “Seven Country Acts You Should Check Out,” and more!

Friday, Sept. 29th at 9:30p.m.

Jordan Davis, a Louisiana native, was surrounded by music at a very young age, singing in the church choir and learning to play the guitar at age 12. After graduating from Louisiana State University and deciding music was his passion, he moved to Nashville, Tennessee in 2012. His music combines traditional country with a mixture of other genres. He has toured with a variety of artists, including: Chase Rice, The Cadillac Three, Randy Rogers Band, David Nail and more.

Saturday, Sept. 30th at 7:30p.m.

Headlining Saturday evening is The London Souls, who have been known as New York City concertgoers “best-kept-secret” since 2008. With Tash on the guitar and Chris on the drums, their sound mixes funk, soul and contemporary psychedelia, drawing influence from bands such as Cream, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, The Hollies and My Morning Jacket.

Saturday, Sept. 30th at 9:00p.m.

Closing out Sunday is Alabama-native and country force, Leah Seawright. While working on her debut country album, Country Girl 101, Seawright met Country Music Hall of Fame drummer, Mark Herndon, who came out of retirement to become her drummer. Having shared the stage with artists such as Luke Bryan, Darius Rucker and Charlie Daniels, Seawright recently released a third single from the EP, Dixie Daughter, full of Alabama soul that’s tender and tough.

Fiesta of Five Flags 2017 Events

Posted on: April 11th, 2017 by miranda

Welcome to Fiesta!

 

The Fiesta of Five Flags is an annual celebration of the founding of Pensacola. In 1559, Spanish Conquistador, Don Tristan de Luna, established Pensacola as the first European settlement in the United States. Since that time five different flags have flown over the City: Spanish, French, British, Confederate, and American. This 10-day festival is one of the oldest and largest heritage festivals in the State of Florida. With events designed to appeal to all ages and interests, Fiesta has always been a significant celebration for the Pensacola Bay Area.

  • June 3, 2017

    Spanish explorer Don Tristan de Luna led a voyage to America in 1559. He exhibited deep faith in something higher than himself in leading this group.

  • June 8, 2017

    The 2017 Fiesta All Krewe Ball will be held on Thursday, June 8 at the Hadji Shrine Temple beginning at 7 p.m.

  • June 9, 2017

    Don Tristan DeLuna, Pensacola’s first citizen, is remembered each year during the Fiesta of Five Flags celebration.

  • September 29, 2017 to October 1, 2017
