Lipton is synonymous with all things tea-related and it has been for more than 100 years. To celebrate the world’s No. 1 tea brand’s 125th anniversary, the first-ever Be More Tea Festival has been announced and it will be blessed by a performance from the Legendary Roots Crew among others.

On Oct. 24, 2015, North Charleston, South Carolina’s Riverfront Park at Naval Yard will be buzzing with live music, food, games, attractions and of course, tea, to commemorate the event.

“The epic Be More Tea Festival will help bring fans together for an exceptional celebration with music, food, fun and a few surprises – everything a festival should be about,” Melanie Watts, Director of Marketing at Pepsi Lipton Partnership, says in a statement. “The festival will bring to life exactly what it means to Be More Tea, and we can’t wait for our fans to celebrate our 125th anniversary right along with us.”

In addition to The Roots, Passion Pit, Walk the Moon and St. Lucia will also be gracing the Be More Tea Festival stage.

From now until September 19, fans will get the chance win tickets to the Be More Festival stage through a social media contest outlined at the event’s official website.
