Fortress Festival planned for Fort Worth in 2017

The evocative, brief trailer first materialized this morning, just after 8 a.m.

So, what on earth is Fortress Festival? (And, secondary to that question, can North Texas sustain yet another festival addition to the calendar?)

For now, organizers are remaining tight-lipped ahead of their planned Oct. 18 reveal, declining to elaborate beyond confirming that the event will be “a brand new music and arts festival coming to Fort Worth next spring.”

The Dallas arm of promotion/booking/marketing outfit Margin Walker Presents is seemingly aligned with Fortress Festival, which bodes well, as it is responsible for many of the more forward-thinking shows that stop through DFW.

We’ll have more on this story in the coming days.
