If you’re not familiar, Moon Crush puts on unique “music vacations” that the organizers say can be thought of as “boutique festivals” – limited to around 5,000 people per night, with each party having a reserved private viewing area they call a “contained outdoor viewing environment” or COVE, and in a destination where concert-goers can spend the day on the beach or at the pool before heading out to the show in the evening.
And this one’s going to be a hell of a weekend.
In an email sent to his Church Choir fan club, Eric Church announced that he would be headlining not one but TWO nights at Moon Crush “Harvest Moon” in Miramar Beach, Florida on October 27-29.
But that’s only two nights – so who’s headlining the third night?
Hanging out on the beach in late October, then heading to two Eric Church concerts and a Turnpike Troubadours show all in one weekend?
Sign. Me. Up.
Three-day passes start at $350 (which is what a lot of people are paying for tickets to see Turnpike these days), so to get two Chief concerts and a Turnpike show, with a crowd of only 5,000? Not a bad deal at all.
Church Choir members can register to buy tickets during the event’s presale, which starts August 2 – and I have a feeling these are going to go QUICK.
There are a ton of music festivals out there these days, where you’re jam packed into a field or a stadium with 60,000 other people to see some mediocre acts and then maybe a headliner or two that you’re actually interested in.
So to see someone doing something different like this “boutique music festival” is pretty damn cool.
