A major new music festival is set to launch this Fall celebrating the rich and diverse music scene from across the U.S. with headliners Bob Seger, Kid Rock and The Killers. Orlando Calling will be a weekend long action-packed festival set in America’s entertainment playground of Orlando, Florida at the world famous Citrus Bowl Park. Featuring four stages of American Artists, Orlando Calling will present platinum-selling marquee acts, icons from the genres of Blues, Country, Rock, Alternative, Nu Folk and R&B. The Festival will also showcase exciting young talent emerging from the Central Florida area and across the nation. Tickets go on sale Saturday, July 23rd at 10am at Ticket package details listed below.

The Killers, will perform a rare US show, their first public appearance in over two years, as Saturday night’s headline act. Sunday night’s headliner, Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band, will perform on an outdoor festival bill for the first time in decades, and for a rare and unique Festival appearance, Kid Rock will join the bill. Other artists will include seminal indie rock acts The Raconteurs and Pixies, and the popular folk rock ensemble, The Avett Brothers. ** Full list of announced performers below.

Festival fans will be able to experience all the action from the multiple stages and performance areas in a way that is accessible, inclusive, and designed as a shared celebration of American music heritage and culture. Additionally, a ‘coffee house’ venue will spotlight traditional folk, bluegrass, jazz and other legacy artists, and will promote the work of local and regional artisans, visual artists, and craft vendors.

Produced by Festival Republic, Europe’s most accomplished independent festival promoters, Orlando Calling promises to bring a genuine festival feel to an urban environment. Melvin Benn, CEO of Festival Republic who produces Glastonbury Festival as well as Reading, Leeds, Latitude and Big Chill in the UK and Electric Picnic in Ireland, Hove in Norway and Berlin Festival in Germany brings all his experience to the Florida market for the first time.

“I am massively excited at the thought of creating an American Music Festival in the sunshine state. Orlando Calling has been a long-term dream for me to realize as has been my desire to reunite a working relationship with Liam Lynch of Authentic, my creative producer,” said Benn. “This will be the first of many festivals to be held on an annual basis in this wonderful city, and to be able to present such amazing artists in the first year is very special indeed.”

Fans will be able to enjoy a downtown music festival in a major regional hub, utilizing local hotel accommodations and free and frequent shuttle bus service directly from downtown to the festival site at the Florida Citrus Bowl Park. Additional late night shows and other activities are planned throughout the weekend in Downtown Orlando.

“Orlando Calling will add another unique, cultural opportunity for our community that will also provide additional economic impact throughout Central Florida,” said Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer. “We are excited to host this event in the recently renovated Florida Citrus Bowl Stadium and to continue to bring more concerts and other events like this to that venue.”

“What makes Orlando the most visited destination in the country, with more than 51 million visitors last year, is that it continually offers new experiences for visitors from across the Globe. Visit Orlando constantly seeks new events and partners and Orlando Calling is a perfect marriage of two great brands – Orlando and Festival Republic – that creates a unique music festival experience,” said Gary Sain, president and CEO of Visit Orlando. “It adds a really exciting music component to our world-renowned theme park attractions, growing dining and nightlife scene, world-class downtown and more.”

Philadelphia indie folk-rock three-piece GOOD OLD WAR will hit the road in support Brandi Carlile beginning July 25th in Kent, OH, followed by a tour with Xavier Rudd (from August 25th in New York City). The support slots come on the heels of a successful USA headline tour, which saw them playing to devout crowds in sold out rooms. The band will also make a hometown performance on August 25, playing a set at Philadelphia Folk Fest with Jeff Tweedy and Richard Thompson.

The band’s latest album “Good Old War,” which was released June 1st on Sargent House, has been receiving critical raves from both national and local press. The Aquarian Weekly said that GOOD OLD WAR “seems to master the art of adorable folk music with their three-part harmonies and amorous tracks…the band has managed to create an album of folksy pop music riddled with vocals that melt together like butter.” The Star-Ledgercongratulated the album’s “angelic multi-part harmonies over finger-picked six-string weaves and brisk country rhythms” and called the trio “imaginative” and “superb.”

The album, which is the band’s second, debuted at #2 on the Billboard Heatseeker chart and #1 on iTunes’ singer/songwriter chart.

Additionally, the band’s recently-recorded World Café Live session will be broadcast today on NPR affiliate station across the country.

“As the lights dimmed before [Matisyahu and K’Naan] came on, the only light still visibly shining was the (RED)NIGHTS logo illuminated on the walls, a symbol that even amongst something as bleak and devastating like AIDS and HIV, there is still hope.” James Boyce, Huffington Post

(RED) and Live Nation today announce new dates for (RED)NIGHTS, an innovative series of 26 concerts in the U.S. to generate money and awareness for the ultimate goal of eliminating AIDS in Africa. The new set of shows will feature concerts by (RED)NIGHTS artists Built to Spill, Thievery Corporation, Brandi Carlile, Ingrid Michaelson, Joshua Radin and Sondre Lerche at venues such as The Fillmore in San Francisco, The Paradise in Boston and the House of Blues in Chicago.

The new (RED)NIGHTS dates follow a successful first round of concerts, which earned attention in Rolling Stone, The New York Times, NME, Time Out New York and the Dallas Morning News. For the first set of shows, Fall Out Boy, Katy Perry, Gomez, Santigold, O.A.R., Lisa Hannigan, The Veronicas, Matisyahu and K’Naan each turned one of their concerts (RED) to bring the (RED) experience to life in a new way. At each of these shows, (RED)NIGHTS and the community of acclaimed artists aimed to inspire fans to participate in (RED)’s mission to eliminate AIDS in Africa by pausing to highlight the many ways to get involved and encouraging those in the audience to share the message and experience with others.

“I believe no person deserves to suffer from a preventable, treatable disease simply because they can’t afford medicine,” said Marc Roberge of O.A.R. “If bringing awareness to what (RED) is doing helps one person receive antiretroviral treatment and live a healthy life, we have accomplished our goal.”

Ultimately, it is the goal of (RED)NIGHTS to build a community—of artists, concertgoers and music fans everywhere—that is passionate about helping to fight AIDS in Africa. A portion of the proceeds of each (RED)NIGHTS concert goes directly to the Global Fund (

(RED) presents the (RED)NIGHTS concert series kicked off at select Live Nation clubs and theaters across the country earlier this year. (RED) and Live Nation are collaborating to link acclaimed artists with their fans to join the fight against AIDS in Africa. Information about the scheduled (RED)NIGHTS concerts can be found at and

“(RED) was looking to engage more people in its mission, to help eliminate AIDS in Africa. The (RED)NIGHTS series is an innovative concept that combines the power of Live Nation’s live music platform and venues to use people’s passion for music to raise awareness and, ultimately, generate more money to help eliminate AIDS in Africa.” said Russell Wallach, President of North American Alliances for Live Nation. “We’re building a great line up of artists for (RED)NIGHTS, and believe we can help (RED) successfully deliver its message by connecting them with music fans all over the country.”

“(RED)NIGHTS is one more way for people to become (RED) and support our efforts to eliminate AIDS in Africa,” says Jenifer Willig, Director of Partners and Marketing at (RED). “We’re so honored to have incredible artists turning their shows (RED) and look forward to bringing (RED)NIGHTS to fans across the country.”

(RED)NIGHTS arrives on the heels of (RED)WIRE, the innovative new digital music service from (RED). The (RED)NIGHTS artists join an impressive community of (RED) artists who are participating in (RED)WIRE, including U2, Coldplay, The Killers, Jay-Z, Elvis Costello, John Legend, Sheryl Crow, Neko Case, Noel Gallagher, Conor Oberst, TV On The Radio, Death Cab For Cutie, Michael Franti and many more. (RED)NIGHTS and (RED)WIRE mark the first time (RED) has moved into the music arena and are a mutual extension of (RED)’s mission, whereby the music community is coming together as a vehicle to raise awareness and funds to help fight AIDS in Africa.
