While the sun was unforgiving and pierced through even the thickest clouds, Float Fest 2016 saw hundreds of patrons from San Marcos and surrounding areas scurry onto one of many of Don’s Fish Camp’s dusty shuttles to be escorted to the starting point of the 2-hour journey down San Marcos river. Upon their return, festival goers had the opportunity to enter the gates and be greeted by the live sounds of many Austin artists, free Ben & Jerry’s ice cream and a whole carnival setup that included a murderously fast ferris wheel (or maybe I’m afraid of heights, whatever).
With only days left until San Marcos’s immersive music festival, Float Fest, river sirens and frat boys state-wide are rushing to their corner liquor store and sharpening their finest shotgun keys to rock out to headliners Chromeo, Rick Ross, Big Gigantic, Bleachers and Bones-Thugz-N-Harmony, just to name a few.
San Marcos’ annual music festival–Float Fest (July 16-17)–is just a few months away. Not only is this year’s lineup packed with great artists, like Chromeo, Santigold, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony and Austin locals Riders Against the Storm (to name just a few) but tubing and camping are included when you purchase a ticket. Need I say more? Here’s everything you need to know about the self described “raddest, loudest, floatest fest in Texas.”
