Set for 10a.m. to 2p.m., this marine musical event is staged by Keys radio station US1 Radio 104.1 FM. The music is broadcast underwater via Lubell Laboratory speakers suspended beneath boats positioned at the reef.

Divers and snorkelers might encounter “Alice in Waterland”, the “Cheshire Catfish” and their fictional friends beneath the sea during the 26th Annual Underwater Music Festival, set for Saturday, July 10th, in the Lower Florida Keys.

The quirky underwater concert takes place at Looe Key Reef, an area of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary approximately six miles south of Big Pine Key. Each year, the subsea songfest draws as many as 600 divers and snorklers to explore the colorful diversity of marine life that characterizes continental America’s only living coral barrier reef.

The 2010 festival offiers an offbeat salute to the classic children’s tale “Alice in Wonderland” and the 2010 film it inspired, with underwater appearances by divers costumed as Alice, the “Mad Haddock”, “Mock Sea Turtle”, “March Herring” and other take-offs on the story’s memorable characters.
