South Star: Large scale music festival coming to Huntsville from producers of Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza

Get ready Alabama, a new music festival that is being hailed as one of the largest in the South is coming to Huntsville this fall. The event is set to take place at the city’s sprawling John Hunt Park complex and, according to promoters, will feature “nostalgic pop and rock anthems.”

The festival has been coined South Star and is scheduled for Sept. 28-29. Its website says that it will “bring a world class festival experience to Huntsville for everyone.” Upwards of 20 artists are expected to be in attendance over the entire weekend.

Although the official lineup is yet to be announced for South Star, The Festive Owl, a trusted source for inside festival information, is currently reporting that rock sensation Blink 182 will be one of the headlining acts for the event.

South Star’s website also said that you can take your experience to the “next level” with a premium ticket and instructed customers to browse GA+, VIP and Platinum offerings for perks like expedited entry, dedicated viewing areas, air-conditioned lounges, and more.

Prices for tickets have not been announced.

C3 Productions, the company in charge of South Star has also produced major music festivals including Austin City Limits, Bonnaroo, and Lollapalooza.

The city of Huntsville has not had a major musical festival since the annual Big Spring Jam came to an end in 2011.
