This year it is two days instead of one. Good Music. Good People. Good Times. With classic hits by legendary artists like Frankie Beverly and Maze and the Ohio Players, to the sounds of contemporary music’s heavy hitters like Jill Scott and Outkast, Funk Fest delivers an all-star line up that has the “old school,” “new school” and everyone in between jamming all night long. For more than 20 years, the Funk Fest has attracted music enthusiasts from across the globe who enjoy partying with a purpose while celebrating the rich cultural heritage of different musical genres. Your Music Experience Will Never Be The Same. Attend both days on Friday & Saturday, April 26 & 27, 2019, at the Central Florida Fairgrounds on West Colonial Drive in Orlando. Friday night showtime starts at 7pm and Saturday night showtime starts at 5pm.
