Fortress Festival is a brand new premier music festival for North Texas. The annual two-day festival will have its inaugural event on April 29 & 30, 2017 in Fort Worth’s world renowned Cultural District!
Two outdoor stages, one stage will be positioned at the museum’s reflecting pond & the other at the Will Rogers Memorial Center, will feature internationally acclaimed headliners Run The Jewels & Purity Ring alongside sought after up-and-coming acts and a variety of local bands and boundary-testing musical pioneers.
The Fortress Festival is a partnership between Fortress Presents and the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. In addition to music, festival programming will take advantage of the diversity of venues available to create a cultural experience that will include multiple creative disciplines. Fortress Festival will provide North Texas with a festival comparable to any other major U.S. metropolitan area while pushing the festival experience into new frontiers.
While on festival grounds, Fortress attendees will have the opportunity to eat and drink from a wide variety of high quality vendors and well-known local and national brands, including some of my favorites:
VIP patrons will also be provided with a menu of options from Righteous Foods, Lanny Lancarte’s cultural district health conscious eatery.
Additionally, all patrons will be able to drink and dine inside the Café Modern during its normal operating hours, featuring a menu by Executive Chef Denise Shavandy. The café bar will stay open until the last act finishes their set on the Modern stage. They will also have burgers on the grill on the patio until the headliner starts!
Four different general admission bars and two VIP bars will carry a variety of festive libations. Different bars will feature different varieties from each brewery so attendees should definitely make the rounds. The list includes some of Texas’ top choices:
In addition to the on-site options, the Cultural District and West 7th area offers a large number of eateries + drinkeries to take advantage of before and after the festival. Highlights include:
Many, many others
