Burnet, TX — "I kind of imagine like, you know, a bit of a Burning Man meets South by Southwest. I'm trying to take the best of both of those worlds and create this kind of amazing space for people to be able to explore you know, of all ages." - Mitch Morales, Texas Eclipse Festival Founder.
We are 4 months away from the total solar eclipse. Central Texas will be right in the path of totality.
Mitch Morales and his team at Texas Eclipse are getting ready to go big for the once-in-a-lifetime event on April 8th 2024. From the 5th through the 8th, part of Burnet, Texas will transform into a hub of art, music, food, space, and technology for the whole family, which Mitch hopes will inspire curiosity and discovery. Get tickets here.
Award-winning global promoter Disco Donnie Presents (DDP) and experiential event company Probably Nothing are thrilled to reveal the first phase of musical talent and highlights from some of the interactive experiences for the immersive music, art and technology festival Texas Eclipse 2024.
From April 5-9, up to 50K+ attendees composed of festival lovers and eclipse enthusiasts from all over the world will flock to central Texas for five days of creative expression, consciousness exploration, and cosmic curiosity for an experience millions of years in the making.
Today’s First Contact talent announcement boasts a roster of renowned artists crossing genres and borders who will perform across six distinct stages, each a vivid world of its own. Among the highlights are jam band STS9 - known for their desire to forge universal connections, transforming each performance as a transcendent celebration of humanity. Trance-fusion band Disco Biscuits, who consistently employ emerging tech into their music, will grace the festival with a fun and futuristic sound, not entirely of this earth. There’s plenty of funk to go around, from R&B soul maestros Vulfpeck, to famed funk-tronic acts such as Big Gigantic, who have rallied behind their “Better Future” ethos in pioneering a fusion of jazz, funk, and dubstep, led by a mélange of impressive instrumentation, and, of course, triumphant saxophone.
Spearheading the world music and bass movement is Clozee - who will conjure her spiritual and evolutionary sound at Texas Eclipse. Grammy-nominated artist Tycho promises to transcend the typical festival experience by seamlessly blending his captivating ambient electronic sound with his own stunning visual creations. Meanwhile, the auditory genius Tipper will bring a mesmerizing glitchy, trip-hop vibe, while Billboard-charting artist Subtronics is poised to deliver a mind-bending, all-encompassing psychedelic DJ set. Of course, it’s not a true party without the globetrotting house and techno party brigade Desert Hearts, along with femme house icon LP Giobbi - who each have ignited the likes of Burning Man with their irresistibly fun performances. For those craving a mix of vibrant bass and cutting-edge sounds, look no further mainstays such as Zeds Dead, Boogie T & Barclay Crenshaw (alias of Claude VonStroke/founder of Dirtybird).
"We’re excited to share today's “First Contact Announcement” the Texas Eclipse Festival's musical lineup. We've curated an incredible mix of artists from around the world, representing diverse genres and styles, all coming together under the captivating backdrop of the 2024 total solar eclipse. This promises to be an extraordinary experience where music, art, and technology and space converge in a truly unique way.” - Disco Donnie
