On August 21st, Columbia South Carolina will be the site of a historic event – the 2017 Solar Eclipse. Columbia has the distinct honor of being the only capital city on the eastern seaboard where the full extent of the Solar Eclipse can be observed, in the form of over two minutes of pitch black. To celebrate this once in a lifetime experience, hotels, restaurants, venues, and even the city of Columbia itself are preparing for a full weekend of special events to welcome the expected ONE MILLION tourists and visitors migrating to Soda City.
On Saturday, August 19th, at 8 pm The Music Farm in Columbia will host ECLIPSEFEST 2017, a night of tributes to your favorite rock and roll bands! For just $10, you can experience the best tribute acts Columbia has to offer. The night starts with Synchronicity, a note perfect tribute to The Police. Following that, Hey Johnny Park! will storm the stage and rock hits from the twenty plus years of The Foo Fighters.
To close the night, these two groups will be joined by some of Columbia’s most talented musicians to deliver a performance suiting the occasion – a complete performance of Pink Floyd’s groundbreaking album Dark Side of the Moon. What better way to prepare for a total solar eclipse?
EclipseFest 2017 is sponsored in part by Caroline Guitar Company, The Jam Room Recording Studio, Burnstein von Seelen, and Firefly Toys and Games. Tickets will be available to the public starting May 6th via TicketFly and the Music Farm box office. Make your plans NOW to attend an unforgettable night of live music, in celebration of a truly amazing event – ECLIPSEFEST 2017!
