With the announcement of Oscar winner and former rodeo cowboy Ryan Bingham being added to this fall's Index Festival having been made today, we now know that this is the year the three year old Deep Ellum-located fest grew up into a major regional force. The three night affair taking place September 26 - 28 will not only be massive in sheer scope, but the range of styles represented should please a great many.
Oh, and the list of which bands will play on which days has been unleashed.
The staggered nature of the lineup announcement hasn't been typical, but its been fun. Now that it's more or less complete, it's time to get out a few differently colored highlighters and start strategizing on how you will make the most of what looks to be an exciting weekend of hopping around Elm, Main and Commerce streets.
As of today, one can purchase single-day passes for $40 on Friday, and $45 for either Saturday or Sunday. Also, as of today, prices for three day passes have gone up just a slight bit. But at $99 for a three day pass and $199 to be a VIP all weekend, the prices are still pretty solid, we think.
