The lineup for the So What?! Music Festival has been announced, and it includes Albany’s State Champs, New York City’s Bayside and Long Island’s Stray From The Path.
So What?! Music Festival (formerly South By So What?!), now in its ninth year, will take place Saturday and Sunday, March 19 and 20, at Quiktrip Park in Grand Prairie, Texas. The initial lineup for the 2016 festival was announced this week: New Found Glory and Underoath will headline the festival on Saturday and Sunday, respectively. State Champs and Bayside will play Saturday, while Stray From The Path will play Sunday. Other artists include Neck Deep, Real Friends, The Devil Wears Prada, Saosin and Beartooth.
From the press release:
Different from other music festivals, So What?! is a “festival made by fans for fans,” stated founder and promoter Mike Ziemer. Opening its doors in 2008, Ziemer and his company Third String Festivals had a vision to create an alternative music festival where fans could get away from the massively growing South by Southwest. The festival was designed for a more intimate ambiance for fans at a reasonable price. Located just a few hours shy of Austin, So What?! Music Festival delivers an array of musical acts including rock, metal, folk, dance, pop, pop-punk, and this year an all new acoustic stage (artists yet to be announced). Previous artists include Asking Alexandria, The Early November, Motion City Soundtrack, G-Eazy, Pierce The Veil, Cartel, Sleeping With Sirens, A Day To Remember, Taking Back Sunday, and more.
Tickets for So What?! Music Festival are available now. Single-day passes can be purchased for $50. Two-day weekend passes are available for $75. VIP packages are also available, starting at $150.
