Florida Strawberry Festival's Nostalgic 2020 Line Up Will Take You Back To The Early 2000s

Skillet, 98 Degrees, Lynard Skynard — did we just time travel?
Florida Strawberry Festival's 2020 Musical Line Up Is Super Nostalgic

There's no denying that the music of the 2000s was iconic, from poppy ballads to sensual seductive tones, we were rockin' those tunes that shaped today's music scene. We'll get to jam out to them again with the Florida Strawberry Festival's 2020 music line up — and it's giving us some serious nostalgia.

The Strawberry Festival announced its entertainment line up today and it's featuring a lot of faces of the past. You'll definitely get the smooth moves of the early 2000s with bands like the hot & steamy 98 Degrees. Is it sweat season over here or is it just us?

Alongside 98 Degrees we'll be seeing other popular faces of the 2000s age like country twang Kings and Queen, Rascal Flatts & Reba McEntire. Christian rock group Skillet will also take the stage to rock the Sunshine State with those nostalgic vibes.

Just when we thought that we'd already traveled back in time enough, Lynard Skynard will take us all the way back to the 60s & 70s — and we know they know how to put on a show. Better whip out that light and the ol' band tees & be prepared to belt to Freebird. Talk about a major throwback.
