The biggest party of the Spring is happening… and it’s not in Dallas! But their lineup – how does Purity Ring and Run The Jewels sound? – is enough to make any Dallasite make the short drive over to Fort Worth! Happening April 29 & 30 in Fort Worth’s internationally renowned Cultural District, the event is also the perfect opportunity to check out the Modern Art Museum. Two-day and single-day GA and VIP tickets are still available, HERE!
The inaugural Fortress Festival looks to offer both local residents and music-lovers from across the country an incredible music lineup featuring internationally acclaimed headliners alongside some of today’s hottest up-and-coming music acts, as well as a variety of local artists and boundary-testing musical pioneers. The festival will also feature two stages – one on the grounds of the Will Rogers Memorial Center and another on the reflecting pond at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth.
The Will Rogers stage will host the festival’s headlining sets by critically acclaimed rap duo Run the Jewels on Saturday night, as well as from beloved indie-electro darlings Purity Ring on Sunday night, which happens to mark the band’s only currently scheduled performance worldwide in 2017. The stage will face the clearing within Will Rogers Square, just north of the Memorial Center main entrance and east of the Will Rogers bronze statue. Between sets, audiences will be able to sit in the shade of historic trees or walk among the many retail and food vendors.
Meanwhile, at the Modern, British post-punk icon Peter Hook, indie legends Wolf Parade and Stranger Things composers SURVIVE, among others, will perform on an ultra low-profile stage situated on the reflecting pond which will be adorned with a dazzling light and sound system custom designed and programmed for the space. Between sets, audiences will be able to peruse priceless modern art in the museum galleries for free with their Fortress Festival wristbands. Galleries will stay open to Fortress audiences, after they close to the public, until 9:00 PM.
