Last year’s edition of the event took place at Cool River Ranch in Martindale, TX, along the San Marcos RiverThe 2019 edition of Float Fest will feature performances by Major Lazer, Portugal.

Gonzales is known as the birthplace of Texas independence and we can’t think of a better place to celebrate a festival rich in Texas traditions such as live music, floating the river, and camping.”Gates to float the river will open at 8 a.m. and tubing tickets can be purchased separately online (you must have a concert ticket to float the river). Held on the sprawling Guadalupe River on a private ranch (2855 South US Highway 183. Gonzales, TX 78629) the festival grounds are quintessential to Central Texas. The festival features ample on-site parking and immediate access to the Guadalupe River. Float Fest will also have over 35 local unique food vendors for attendees to enjoy – stay tuned for more details.Float Fest will still include all the amenities of floating the river, camping, and live music, with the property being three times larger than past festivals. With river access to float being on-site at this year’s festival, no more shuttles are needed, which means immediate access to the water upon arrival. The campgrounds are on a pecan orchard, with beautiful 200-year-old trees that provide tons of shade right by the Guadalupe River as well as larger camping sites with 20×20 spaces available.“Floating the beautiful river is a Texas tradition that we’d like to keep, but with respect. Festival-goers will be able to enjoy in doing so while listening to their favorite artists,” explains Federman. “Each year, we work hard in maintaining the river clean by offering resources for visitors like providing biodegradable bags for disposal items, having our team out there collecting items from floaters, and having divers do a deep cleaning after the fest. We partner with local community members that share our same vision.”For more details and ticketing information, head to the Float Fest website here.last_img read more
