Festivals

35 Denton Adds 100 Bands, Including Charles Bradley and a Horde of Locals

Hope you took a late lunch, folks, because perusing this list is going to take a while. As is tradition with 35 Denton, the festival's organizers have rolled out the announcements for this year's event — set to take place in less than a month from March 11 to 13 — over the course of a few installments, and early this afternoon they made the third and final one. And boy, are there a lot of bands.

Leading the way of the 100 (yeah, you read that right) new artists announced today is the Screamin' Eagle himself, Charley Bradley. The Gainesville soul man hasn't played North Texas in two years, so his should be a welcome return as he joins Biz Markie and others as one of the main stage headliners for the weekend.

Most interesting in today's announcement — which, if you're short on time, you should probably absorb in video form, which will only take a few minutes (see below) — are the dozens and dozens of North Texas acts who were added. Son of Stan, In Memory of Man, Claire Morales, LEV, Nervous Curtains, Rat Rios, Kaela Sinclair, Abacaba and a boatload of others have all joined the ranks.

Perhaps most interestingly is the appearance of Paul Slavens, who as recently as a couple weeks ago was an outspoken opponent of 35 Denton's association with SonicBids. Ever a supporter of all things Denton, it's nice to see Slavens on the lineup.

That's the last of 35 Denton's official festival lineup, but there are more announcements slated to happen in the coming weeks, including VIP recording session bands as well as programming schedules. In the meantime, tickets, which range from $25 for Friday-only passes up to $100 for weekend fast-track passes, are onsale now at 35denton.com.
