The best things in life are free, and the good folks at Bacardi want to show off their new line of pre-mixed cocktails in a way that you won't find obnoxious.
So they've announced the Bacardi Plus Fest, a nationwide booze-and-tuneage event. On May 4, there will be a free show for 21-and-older partiers in Miami. And because we're living in an age of utter connectivity, they'll also be hosting sister shows in party cities all across the country that very same night.
Just RSVP via facebook.com/BacardiPlus. 'Cause who can say no to free stuff!
This "tour" features ten free concerts, featuring more than 40 acts at secret locations in cities including Chicago, Austin, and New York. The headliners are MSTRKRFT, Kendrick Lamar, and Big Gigantic. But we don't get any of those guys.
The show in Miami will feature performances by local stunners Bonnie Beats and Beats Bailey as well as a DJ set from Rob Garza of Thievery Corporation.
So get pumped. But don't get too pumped. There's no mention of free drinks.
