Ah, the beautiful Gulf side of Florida.
This is a beautiful part of Florida anchored by Tampa and St. Petersburg along with the lovely little town of Madeira Beach.
Boatstock, a free floating music festival, takes place in Boca Ciega Bay just south of Tom Stuart Causeway off the coast of Madeira Beach.
Boatstock is a social distancing event with music on the water.
Latitude 27.808323 Longitude (-)82.78409
Los Angeles band, SWIMM, will headline.
The after party is at the Brass Captain Bar (which is directly across from the Saltwater Hippie Bar) in Madeira Beach.
Both bars are incredibly fun. They’re located on a side street off Gulf Blvd across from Archibald Beach. The Brass Captain has pool tables and Saltwater Hippie has live music.
