Superfly is making a "music/games/culinary/arts" fest in phoenix in AZ.
The festival promises to bring more than 40 musical acts, ranging from known A-listers to up-and-coming talent. There will also be other selected offerings of arts and entertainment, as well as culinary and beverage offerings.
"We were inspired by the energy and creative shift that is happening in the Phoenix metro area to create a festival experience that represents the Valley's culture," Superfly co-founder Rick Farman said in a press release.
"Our residents and visitors haven't seen anything like the Lost Lake Festival yet," Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton said.
"The culinary part of this is going to be huge," Farman said.
Many other organizations from Phoenix will help with the festival, including Stateside Presents, Walter Productions, Starr Hill, Phoenix Lights, and A Beautiful Perspective.
You can find more information about the event at lostlakefestival.com.
"This is something we are going to do every year," Farman said.
since Kalliope comes from PHX, you gotta think they will show up.
MFN: Anything exciting you want to tell us regarding the collaboration with Superfly and the new Lost Lake Festival in Arizona, where Big Red and Kalliope were born?
Anna Warble: YES! We are ecstatic that Phoenix has been chosen as the next city for Superfly to call home. Walter Productions is a creative partner in the festival, so you’re definitely going to see a presence from us there. I am personally so excited for Phoenix at the moment. The arts scene here is exploding with creative energy. We have a really special thing going on that I’m excited to share with my extended festival family. And the weather in October is beautiful.
Definitely intrigued at this new festival. Only a 6hr drive away and being in October when it doesn't feel like an oven outside as much anymore.
2017 Shows Sam Roberts Band, Wilco, Local Natives, Ryan Adams(!), Mac DeMarco, Chance the Rapper, Future Islands, Frightened Rabbit, TOOL, Field Trip Music Festival, Gary Clark Jr., Arkells w/July Talk, Gorillaz, Tom Petty, Metallica, Muse, Incubus, Lollapalooza (!!!),Kings of Leon, Deep Purple & Alice Cooper, Father John Misty
Tier One pricing started at $194 and Tier Two at $224. I think it's priced fairly and accordingly.
Nothing spectacular but a relatively safe lineup for the first year with a few interesting and unique acts rare to the festival circuit. Also says "more to be announced" so perhaps there will be a few more solid acts added.
They sold out of the 164 almost instantly (I tried on my phone, laptop, and tablet). I'll see what Craigslist or stub hub will have, not really ready to shell out $400+ for the roommate and I for this.
Picked up some Mac DeMarco/FLips and son volt/Justin Townes Earle tix instead.
