The History of DeLuna Festival

DeLuna Music Festival is replacing tents, RVs, and trunks of cars with first class ocean-side resort hotels to become the first resort destination festival, with hotels actually apart of the festival grounds. Nicholas Bodkins, founding member of the promotional company behind DeLuna, Five Flags Tourism Group, spoke at a press conference earlier this week.

“Think camping festival, but instead of tents and mud, you have comfortable beds in an air-conditioned room, instead of cold food, there’s room service…” After its inaugural year in 2010, the beach festival’s grounds will remain mostly on the beach, where the two main stages will be, but will include surrounding hotels like The Hilton and Holiday Inn as part of the festival-going experience.

Resort Hotel packages will go on-sale March 15th at 10 a.m. on the festivals website, Three-Night and Four-Night packages will be available on a tiered basis, based on which hotel you choose, as well as the size of the room and the view. Besides the obvious comfort and convenience factor, the various perks of this fact including charging merchandise to your room, room service, and late night electronic music stages inside the hotels.

In addition to the swagged out accommodations, DeLuna is also expanding the festival to include six stages of music, featuring performances on the resort pool decks where “festival attendees can experience unique performances from singer-songwriters and DJs throughout the day, and even more entertainment into the evening.”
