Ziggy Marley will headline new Switchback Music Festival in Winter Park, adding to more than 45 events this summer

Sky-Hi staff report news@skyhinews.com

The Winter Park & Fraser Chamber of Commerce announced the lineup for the 2018 Odell Brewing Summer Concert Series this week, featuring two completely new music festivals.

Perhaps most exciting on the list is the brand new Switchback Music Festival on June 16 and 17, featuring six-time Grammy winner and world-famous reggae musician Ziggy Marley. The next day Winter Park will welcome two-time Grammy nominees SOJA, the eight-piece internet sensations out of Washington D.C.

In August, the stage at Hideaway Park will go southern for the Country at the Park festival, which promises to bring some of the biggest names in the country/western genre, though no lineup has been announced yet.

In all, the summer event lineup features more than 45 events, including the 36th Annual Winter Park Jazz Festival, Mountain Bike Capital USA Weekend, the 3rd Annual Tequila & Tacos and the Winter Park Uncorked Wine Festival. Early bird tickets are already available for the switchback, jazz, tequila and tacos, and wine festivals on the chamber website.

Additional lineups, dates and details should be released in the coming weeks.
