I’m not really sure if you’ve noticed, but we’re sort of into music here at The Cluster entertainment page. It’s kind of our big thing. That’s why, this fall break, we’re headed to Deluna Fest, a three day music festival on the beaches of Pensacola, Florida. And we’d like you to join us.

That’s right, you, dear reader. We want you to accompany us to Pensacola from October 14-16, hang out with us on the beach, and see some of the best bands currently in the industry.Headliners include Weezer, Girl Talk, Jane’s Addiction, Cut Copy, Cake and tons more. We actually cannot properly stress how much we love this lineup. We’ll be offering live-blog and print coverage of the fest, but really, that’s not enough for us. We need to see your beautiful faces singing and dancing along with us. Don’t disappoint us, readers.

So, here are the details.

The festival is held in Pensacola Beach, the Florida panhandle. I’ll do your work for you and let you know that it’s about a six hour drive. The fest lasts from Friday, October 14 to the following Sunday, October 16, and the music generally lasts from about noon until midnight, or whenever exactly Gregg Gillis decides to stop jumping around onstage.

You’ve got three hotels to choose from, all priced to fit different budgets. I suppose you could stay off festival grounds, but they offer some pretty good deals for festivalgoers.

The festival features five stages, the main stage and four others sponsored by Wind Creek, gopensacola.com, Gulf Winds Jazz & Heritage and  Grooveshark. Personally, I plan to split most of my time betwen Wind Creek and the main stage, but there’s seriously not a wrong choice. The smaller stages all feature a wide variety of independent and up-and-coming acts.

So, Mercerians, what do you say? Are you going to join your favorite writers at an awesome music festival. or are you going to do something lame like go camping? Because seriously, this is better.
