BP Fallon is to host Austin’s Fire Fest which takes place on Saturday June 30th.
The Texas event – with the slogan ‘Your Town, Your Bands, Your Festival’ – gathers together the hottest and most happening new bands from the town known as The Music Capitol Of The World.
Appearing on three stages are Black Pistol Fire, White White Lights, Leopold And His Fiction, The Sweet Nuthin, Wild Child, Black & White Years, Eric Tessmer Band, Eagle Claw, Scorpion Child, Peter & The Wolf, Holiday, La Migra, Gobi, The Docs, Purple, The Wolf, Burning Avalanche and Human The Claw.
BP – always with an ear cocked for vibey new bands – has featured many of these combos on his fabled weekly web radio show BP Fallon’s Wang Dang Doodle.
Says our Mr Fallon “You have things like the Austin City Limits festival in October with Jack White and Neil Young And Crazy Horse and The Stooges, brilliant lineup. Fire Fest is great too but different in that it’s a summer celebration of local Austin bands all on the up and all collected together for one day only. Everyone knows everyone, it’s very communal, the young bands in the Austin music scene. And it’s only $25”.
There will also be an area for people to let off fireworks and a pyrotechnic performance by DJ Swamp plus a late night dance party with Talk To Strangers, DJ Bomber and DJ Swager. Plus free all night camping.
