“We anticipate this location to be home to the North Oak Cliff Music Festival for many years to come,” Kessler owner Edwin Cabaniss stated in a media release.
This is the first North Oak Cliff Music Festival, and Cabaniss says he wants the festival eventually to become as big as Austin City Limits Festival, which draws as many as 75,000 people over three days to Zilker Park in Austin.
In addition to music from Alejandro Escovedo, Joe Ely, Carolyn Wonderland, Bobby Patterson, Lucky Peterson and others, the festival will feature food trucks, adult beverages and a children’s area.
There will be two stages at the park, one just south of the lake and one just west of the baseball diamond. Lawn chairs are encouraged, and no outside food or drinks will be allowed.
Advance tickets to the one-day festival are just $12 for general admission and $25 for VIP. On the day of the fest, those prices go up to $20 and $35, respectively.
