Lower Keys Underwater Music Festival Rescheduled to Sept. 18
Pool Concert Set for July 10 at Looe Key Reef Resort
LOOE KEY, Florida Keys — The Lower Keys Underwater Music Festival planned for Saturday, July 10, has been rescheduled because of poor visibility following the center of Tropical Storm Elsa’s July 6 passage west of Key West.
Now set for Saturday, Sept. 18, the annual festival draws divers and snorkelers to Looe Key Reef, off Big Pine Key, to listen to music and coral reef protection messages broadcast by Keys radio station US1 104.1 FM.
Meanwhile, event organizers are planning a “pool party” version of the popular annual event at Looe Key Reef Resort, mile marker 27.5, to create a Saturday, July 10, activity for residents and visitors who intended to participate. The radio station’s broadcast is to be carried in the pool by underwater speakers.
As a part of the festival, a 6-8 p.m. gathering is still set for tonight (Friday, July 9) at Mote Marine Laboratory’s Summerland Key location. Attendees can learn about reef preservation and Mote’s coral restoration efforts.
