35 Conferette Announces Performance Schedule
Well, it finally came to pass: Just before noon today, the folks at Denton's upcoming four-day music festival the 35 Conferette (formerly the NX35 Conferette) posted the full schedule of events for their deal -- or, well, at least the night-time goings-on for its third year of existence.
No word at the moment on the day-time panel and events, but, indeed, 35 Conferette today announced the dates and venue locations for each of the 224 bands it has booked to play its fest.
They've also opened up the sales on single-day wristbands -- which ain't exactly cheap, coming in at no less than $50 per day (and up to $65 for Saturday or Sunday passes). That's a significant increase over the $85 cost for four-day wristbands, which, almost inexplicably, are still available, although we doubt for too much longer at that rate.
At first glance of the schedule, our immediate reaction is that Sunday night in particular is quite stacked -- so much so that it might just overshadow the other three days combined.
Yeah, Sunday boasts a whole slew of big names at various venues, including Big Boi,
Gayngs, !!!, Dan Deacon, Portugal. The Man, Damien Jurado, Miami
Horror, A Place to Bury Strangers and Jessica Lea Mayfield on top of many others.
But each night does boast a nice main outdoor stage headliner: On Thursday, it's Mavis Staples; on Friday, it's Dr. Dog; Saturday, it's Local Natives; and Sunday, as we already mentioned, it's Big Boi.
Peruse the whole schedule here, then let us know your picks for strongest day, strongest single-venue bill, etc., in the comments.
