Big IV Productions has announced the initial line-up for the eighth installment of the Bear Creek Music & Art Festival taking place November 13th – 16th, 2014 at Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park (SOSMP) in Live Oak, FL.

Steeped in the tradition of New Orleans and New York funk music, each year just before Thanksgiving fans of powerful big band music descend upon the hallowed grounds of SOSMP for four days. Bear Creek’s exceptional line-up also showcases the eclectic nature of the scene; encompassing genre-defining performers in world and roots music, live electronic, rock, and everything in between. As is tradition at Bear Creek, many of the bands perform on two separate dates during the weekend and several talented instrumentalists act as artists-at-large, creating memorable surprise sit-ins and inspired performances.
Recognized as one of the most beautiful live music venues in the country, Bear Creek goers can enjoy music on three outdoor stages and one indoor stage including the famed Amphitheater Stage, set in the midst of towering pine and oak trees decorated with Spanish moss. The park also offers guest comforts including a general store, full-service restaurant, showers and water stations.
