A Festival for Fort Worth
Fortress Festival spotlights hot up-and-coming music acts in 2nd edition
Fortress Festival has announced the full music lineup for its second annual event, which will take place on April 28 and 29 in the Cultural District of Fort Worth. Headlining the two-day event will be Father John Misty, Courtney Barnett, and The Voidz, an experimental punk rock band formed by Julian Casablancas of The Strokes.
The lineup, designed to feature hot up-and-coming music acts as well as a variety of local artists, will also include De La Soul, RZA (featuring Stone Mecca), Chicano Batman, Tune-Yards, Rapsody, Shabazz Palaces, Lee Fields & The Expressions, Hurray for the Riff Raff, Waxahatchee, Jay Som, The Texas Gentlemen, Bedouine, Vandoliers, Ronnie Heart, Cure for Paranoia, Henry the Archer, Andy Pickett, Midnight Opera, and Pearl Earl.
The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth will once again serve as one of the venues for the festival. Both general admission and VIP passes offer free access to the Modern’s galleries during the festival.
The Will Rogers Memorial Center and nearby park will also be utilized as venues. Organizers say they have listened to attendees’ concerns about the distance and overall entry process between the main stages; a new, unified layout to alleviate those issues will be announced soon.
Weekend general admission and VIP passes are available now for purchase at FortressFestival.com/tickets. A limited supply of early bird two-day general admission tickets are $89, while VIP passes are $225. VIP passes include perks like exclusive events, preferred viewing areas, free parking, expedited entry, exclusive food and drink offerings, and more. Ticket prices for both levels will increase as the festival date approaches.
