Nash was scheduled to be the first performer of the day on the festival’s C Stage, scheduled from 12:15 to 12:45. He lived in nearby Daytona Beach, according to festival organizers, but was involved with a music scene that spans both Flagler and Volusia counties.

It continues a rough stretch for the Nash family; Kevin’s longtime friend and fellow NWO member, Scott Hall, also passed away in March. Tristen’s passing falls on Hall’s birthday.

It’s uncertain how Flo.wav Fest might change its event to honor Nash, but the young artist’s passing will loom large over the day. Many of the performers and organizers knew Nash personally.

In 1996, Kevin Nash left the then WWF (Now WWE) for WCW. Along with Hall, they appeared as The Outsiders ushering in a new era of wrestling. Nash had seemek an easier schedule upon learning that his wife was pregnant with Tristen and found it with WCW.

The father and son still had a close relationship until the end, with Tristen helping work on his father’s podcast. He’s also survived by his fiancée, Savanna.

Flo.wav Fest will start at 12:00 at the Palm Coast Arts Foundation stage.
