Bullstock Music Festival
Bullstock is the annual spring music festival put on by CAB. It began in 1997 as a concert for local performers and has grown into a music festival with top shelf bands/performers like All American Rejects, Andy Grammer, Young the Giant, and X Ambassadors. The event is usually held in April and, in 2012, Bullstock became the Friday event to close out USF Week www.usf.edu/usfweek. Don't be surprised to see inflatables, zip lines, and rock climbing walls--plus great food from local restaurants and food trucks, this concert event is not one to miss! This event is free and open to the public.
