Euphoria Music + Camping Festival, a three-day music and camping festival returning to Austin, Texas this April 10-12th, has announced its first round of artists. Featuring both DJ and live sets, Euphoria is continuing its mission of remaining true to its electronic roots, while showcasing the genres foray into live performance. After a surprise Christmas Day announcement of Electro Hip-Hop Soul innovator Pretty Lights, the festival has added four additional headliners to the bill.
Following a brief hiatus, Austin-based Ghostland Observatory will be making its first live appearance at Euphoria; Canadian dance music duo, Adventure Club brings its slick EDM and floor-rumbling dubstep; music festival stalwarts and electro-fusion pioneers, STS9 add EMCF to their list and the genre melding Thievery Corporation rounds out the first round of headliners. Also included are Break Science, Emancipator Ensemble, Grandtheft, Herobust, Kap Slap, Manic Focus, Paper Diamond and many more to come. Added artists and details about the fourth annual festival will be announced in the coming weeks.
“Expanding to a full three days of camping, coupled with our diverse lineup has allowed us to create an immersive festival experience unique not just to Texas, but to most festivals out there," says Euphoria creative director Mitch Morales. “We really want to emphasize our culture and show fans what sets us apart from the rest."
The three-day camping festival will be held at Carson Creek Ranch, one of the oldest existing ranches in Texas, consisting of two 20-acre pastures separated by Carson Creek on the banks of the Colorado River. Conveniently located just minutes from Downtown Austin, the grounds provide a picturesque camping setting while still being close to the comforts of the city. Continuing its pledge to provide the concertgoer with a unique overall festival experience, Euphoria will be building upon previous years, including cutting edge visuals, innovative stage design, workshops featuring a diverse range of artists, interactive experiential installations and special late night music on all three days. Additionally, the festival has expanded its camping options, which will provide campers with early access to the venue, morning yoga, meditation, food truck vendors, and enhanced venue facilities.
A very limited number of General Admission passes are still available for $119, but will rise to the next price level within the week. Multiple VIP passes, with preferred main stage viewing area, a private bar, restrooms and separate entrance are available, starting at $269. Camping options are available for both General Admission and VIP. Tickets will be available online HERE. Euphoria Music Festival is an 18 and over event.
