Fortress Festival’s inaugural event is scheduled this April 29-30 in Fort Worth’s Cultural District. Two-day and single-day general admission and VIP tickets are available for purchase at www.FortressFestival.com.
The inaugural Fortress Festival features 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 organization said in a news release.
in partnership with the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, the festival featured 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 beloved indie-electro darlings Purity Ring on Sunday night – the band’s only currently scheduled performance worldwide in 2017.
At the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, 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.
Single-day general admission passes to the fest are just $65, while single-day VIP passes cost $145. Additionally, GA weekend passes are still available for $105 as well as two-day VIP weekend passes, which are on sale for $275. Both GA and VIP passes offer free access to the Modern’s galleries during the festival with extended gallery hours exclusively for Fortress audiences.
