Mile 0 Fest was founded in 2017, with it’s first year of production being 2018. It was created on the principal of producing a festival that checked all of the boxes:
- Fantastic Line-Up – that has repeat and fan favorites back every year, but also brings in new faces, and fresh talent. The best in Red Dirt Americana
- Location, Location, Location – A destination that was enjoyable for everyone! Key West has everything, beaches, fishing, water-sports, history, shopping, dining, dancing, its the perfect vacation.
- Fan Bliss – A festival that puts the fans first. No overcrowding here, we are a boutique festival with an attendance cap. Over a short period of time our attendees have become family. With almost every state represented, music fans from all over the country come together once a year to celebrate the common thread that binds them. The Love of great music.
- Flexibility – You want to come VIP and have all of your lodging, passes and extras taken care of with a one-stop shop? You got it! We have an incredible concierge staff that can make that happen. You want to book everything yourself and just get a pass to the festival? We can do that too! (Check out the Packages and Passes page for more detailed information)
