Float Fest brings tubing, camping, Passion Pit, MGMT, Weezer & more to Texas
Float Fest, "the only festival in the world to combine the Texas tradition of floating the San Marcos river, live music, camping, and a carnival," returns on July 22 and 23 to the Cool River Ranch in San Marcos, Texas. The fest has two stages with no overlapping sets, and a lineup that includes Passion Pit (who just released a new album), MGMT (who should be releasing one soon), Weezer, Neon Indian, Mike Jones, Mac Miller, Girl Talk, Zedd, Cage the Elephant, and more.
According to Float Fest's own description, "The festival boasts a number of activities so that “festers” have the ability to personalize their own Float Fest adventure. Patrons can enjoy world class performances, roam the grounds, chill at their campsite, float (or swim) in the river, play lawn games, and hop on a multitude of carnival rides including a roller-coaster and ferris-wheel."
Last year, the fest had a permit blocked after "anti-tuber backlash" but it will go on as planned.
Festival passes are on sale now. The "fanatic pass" includes tubing and camping.
