Fortress Fest 2017

“Um. Woah…”



…is what we said when we saw the lineup for the inaugural Fortress Festivalcoming to Fort Worth’s Cultural District this spring. Without further ado, let us shed some light on the spring festival that’s going to make Funkytown just a little more funkier:


What’s this now?

Fortress Festival is a brand new music festival for North Texas. Two outdoor stages will feature internationally-acclaimed headliners alongside sought after up-and-coming acts and a variety of local bands and boundary-testing musical pioneers.
