“Papadosio have announced the release of their new EP, Pattern Integrities Vol. I due out September 21st, 2016, and phase one of the Pattern Integrities tour, kicking off with three nights headlining the Resonance Music Festival in Thornville, OH and concluding with two shows at Brooklyn’s iconic Brooklyn Bowl.
The Pattern Integrities tour introduces a new concept from Papadosio: The Pattern Integrity, or “P.I”, set. The P.I. set is in tribute to the great mind of Buckminster Fuller, and features live looping, sequencing, sampling, improvisation, and synthesis. The P.I. set is an effort to do something original, not just with the music itself, but the way in which it is performed. Fans can get a sneak peak of the P.I. set in the just released EP teaser video here.
Papadosio will dedicate the first night to the P.I. set in cities with two shows; and the first set in cities with one show. Papadosio presale for non-festival shows starts Thursday, July 28th. Local on-sales begin on Friday, July 29th.”

After much thought and consideration, it is with heavy hearts that we announce that we will not be producing Magnolia Fest at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in 2016. Instead we will host a Magnolia Fest 20th Anniversary Celebration in St Augustine at the St. Augustine Amphitheater. It will be a one day event on Saturday, October 15 with a pre-party on Friday, October 14. St Augustine is a beautiful city with wonderful beaches, there are a lot of hotels and also camping right next to the venue, with easy access to the Jacksonville Airport. Details will be released in the next couple of weeks.
Rising costs for talent, production and the inability to negotiate a deal with the Spirit of Suwannee make it impossible to do this event in Live Oak without a substantial increase in ticket prices or a reduction in the quality of the show.
Magnolia Fest has been a magical experience for years and a place for family and friends to come together every fall to enjoy some of the best music in the country. Always cherish those memories.

“Don’t miss this once-only event – with costumes, souvenir masks, brand new music you haven’t heard us play before (including new album-originals and special Halloween songs!), and special guests! If you’ve never seen us in this special venue in our home town, then we’d love for you to join us to see how we shine when we are surrounded by the people we love in this intimate world-class setting.
Opening the show will be Ann Arbor’s own blazing Balkan brass band Rhyta!
All ages are welcome at The Ark and costumes are encouraged, though we will be giving out masks for those who don’t bring their own. (while supplies last)”
