Music Festival Fever Hits Fort Worth and Leon Bridges is All in — Your Fortress Festival Guide

When Texas Stars Take Centerstage

BY // 02.03.19

It’s still cold outside — well, by Texas standards anyways — but it’s time to start gearing up for festival season. Many lineups for the hottest music festivals in Texas already have been revealed.

One of the highest-anticipated festivals this year takes place in Fort Worth. The third annual Fortress Festival shakes up the city from April 27th to 28th in partnership with the Modern Art Museum of Forth Worth.

Since its first festival in 2016, Fortress Festival has highlighted Fort Worth’s hottest musical talents alongside nationally popular groups. Now, it is giving music lovers a boutique music festival experience celebrating music, art and culture.

The weekend festival heats up the Cultural District of Fort Worth, housed entirely within the spacious lawn adjacent to the Will Rogers Coliseum Memorial Center, with two outdoor main stages to show off the state’s buzziest music acts.

Some of the most anticipated acts include the Scottish synth-pop trio CHVRCHES, who released their third album, Love Is Dead, in May, alongside the rap duo Rae Sremmurd, pop and R&B singer Tinashe, and Texas favorite Leon Bridges.

Bridges hails from Fort Worth and has long been a music darling, wooing audiences with his sweet croons that have earned him Grammy Award nominations the past three years.
