Tampa Bay Margarita Festival (which is now a “Margarita and Music” festival) is moving from Tampa's Curtis Hixon Park to Julian B. Lane Riverfront Park, and it’s moving to include more big name bands, too.

Rapper Nelly and indie-rock band Cold War Kids are already on the bill, and now classic, Grammy-winning ’90s rock band Soul Asylum (“Runaway Train”) will join in on all of the salted-rim fun on May 25. It's the band's first show in the area since a 2018 gig at St. Petersburg's Al Lang Field.

Margarita Fest is a 21 & up event. GA tickets are $17-$35, and VIP entry (bathrooms, lounge seating plus unlimited beer, wine, water and more than 60 kinds of margaritas) start at $110. More information is available via
