With headliners Willie Nelson and Don McLean, the Space Coast Seafood and Music Festival in Viera expects to draw crowds of 25,000 to the four-day event, Feb. 15 to 18.

Giles Malone, the organizer of the event, and his business partner Tom Palermo prefer the new venue. It was in Cocoa Beach last year.

“We needed a bigger venue with more and bigger parking,’’ Malone said. “This venue is ideal. It is centrally located in Brevard County.”

Malone said Space Coast Daily Park is 30 acres just off I-95.

There will be arts and crafts shows, marketplace and seafood vendors and activities for children. The festival also will feature fair midway games.

The performances are: The Space Coast Symphony Orchestra, Don McLean, Willie Nelson and The Wailers.

Tickets, which can be purchased at Walgreens or Ticketmaster, range from $8 for a festival daily ticket to $49 for a multi-day pass. Children younger than 10 are not charged an admission fee. Parking is $5 and VIP parking is $10.

The park is located at 6091 Stadium Parkway in Viera.

Reserved concert tickets are only available at Ticketmaster at 1-800-745-3000. For further information such as performance times, search online for Space Coast Seafood and Music Festival.
