(AllHipHop News) The sixth annual Float Fest will feature performances by rap, alternative, indie rock, and EDM acts. Hip Hop stars Gucci Mane, Ice Cube, and Big Boi are part of the lineup. With two main stages, attendees will have access to a range of musical choices without worrying about overlapping sets.
“We’re excited to bring back Float Fest for its sixth year and host some of the nation’s most talented artists to produce a unique experience in Gonzales,” says Marcus Federman, Float Fest founder.
Federman continues, “We’re thrilled to be moving to a new city and keep the tradition of our fest going. Gonzales is known as the birthplace of Texas independence and we can't think of a better place to celebrate a festival rich in Texas traditions such as live music, floating the river, and camping.”
The music festival also organizes the Keep The River Clean initiative. The cleanup project includes the Float Fest crew clearing up the river before, during, and after the festival with divers and boats to ensure a safe and fresh zone.
"Floating the beautiful river is a Texas tradition that we’d like to keep, but with respect. Festival-goers will be able to enjoy in doing so while listening to their favorite artists,” explains Federman.
He adds, “Each year, we work hard in maintaining the river clean by offering resources for visitors like providing biodegradable bags for disposal items, having our team out there collecting items from floaters, and having divers do a deep cleaning after the fest. We partner with local community members that share our same vision.”
Float Fest 2019 is scheduled for July 20 and 21 in Gonzales, Texas. Weekend tickets, day tickets, and a limited amount of VIP tickets are now available for purchase. For more information visit floatfest.net.
