Float Fest to return in 2020; Early bird tickets on sale now
Roughly six months after organizers of the music and tubing summer fest canceled the 2019 edition, citing “several recent roadblocks outside of our control” and “an effort to do right by our fans,” a date has been set for the event’s 2020 return and a limited amount of $99 two-day passes are on sale now.
No lineup has been released for the 2020 festival which is scheduled to take place July 25-26. Major Lazer, Portugal the Man and Gucci Mane were headliners for the canceled 2019 event.
It’s been a rocky year for one of the few independently promoted music festivals that remain in Central Texas. In January, Guadalupe County officials denied Float Fest a permit to expand at the New Braunfels site where it began. Festival organizers then decided to move the summer event to a private ranch in Gonzales a site that they said was three times larger than the old space and would give the event room to grow. The festival was canceled on June 21.
“Over the last year, we’ve been working on major improvements to the property to provide the best experience,” festival founder Marcus Federman said in a press release.
Organizers shared a video of the new festival site with panoramic views of Guadalupe River and a sprawling property which they say includes “over 450 acres of pecan trees creating natural shade canopies.”
The $99 passes on sale now are for music access only. Tubing, camping, and parking passes will be available at a later date.
