Fire Fest heats up Austin

May 21, 2012 by  

Austin is not only home to the capital building and several other important landmarks important to Texan history, it also harbors what most would find as some of the strangest attractions and people you will see.

Austin is well-known for this and even takes pride in it, especially with the slogan “keep Austin weird” continuously printed on T-shirts from several different printing companies. Austin always holds true to is its ability to enable new events and festivals to grow and Fire Fest is one of the many festivals that have kindled in the heart of Texas.

For just one day, in the middle of the hot Texas summer, Austin will be host to this new music festival. Said to be revolutionary for the city of Austin, it is known to be the only event in the city to allow the public to shoot off fireworks. The exciting event is bound to bring locals from areas on the outskirts, such as Georgetown and Round Rock, into Austin.

Once the sun begins to go down, a host of bands will occupy the stage one-by-one and play until late into the night. These include electro outfit Gobi, funk trio Achachay, and California’s very eclectic Trees. After every band has played, several DJs will play a variety of different kinds of music for the late-night partying attendees.

Fire Fest is a 24-hour event that is scheduled to start on June 30 at 3:00 pm, end on July 1 at 3:00 pm, and be held at 7000 South Highway 183 in Austin, Texas. Tickets are currently on sale under a Spring Special for $15 per ticket.
