SOS Fest

Sound on Sound Fest in McDade, Texas

Another weekend of rock and Renaissance is on the books for 2017, organizers of the Austin-area Sound on Sound Fest announced on Monday. The three-day music festival is scheduled for Nov. 10, 11 and 12 at Sherwood Forest Faire, a Renaissance fair site in McDade, Texas.

Despite a powerful thunderstorm and flooding threat that prompted the venue’s evacuation for several hours, the first incarnation of SOS Fest drew an average of 12,000 people a day in November to see than 60 artists, from Phantogram and Beach House to Thursday and Aesop Rock. The event’s unique location provided fest goers with an immersive experience that included camping in the woods and mingling with Renaissance players.

A lineup announcement has yet to be made, but early-bird passes for the festival will go on sale on Thursday. Fans can get a three-day GA pass (not including tax and shipping) for $130.
