Untapped Festival, which has expanded to five Texas cities overall, returns to Fort Worth June 11 at Panther Island Pavilion.

In its fourth year in Fort Worth, the annual craft beer and music-oriented event will feature eight bands across two stages.

The music kicks off at 3:30 p.m., with Built to Spill, Hayes Carll, Grupo Fantasma, David Ramirez, Rayland Baxter, White Reaper, Bummer Vacation and the Hendersons scheduled to perform.

Organizers promise 70 breweries represented on-site with over 300 beers available for sampling.

New to the Fort Worth edition for 2016 is what organizers call the VIP “Stout Package,” which provides early access to festival attendees, as well as access to the Untapped Clubhouse, side stage access, an open bar featuring food from local restaurants and more.

“Untapped Fort Worth marks the first time we expanded the festival outside of Dallas back in 2013, and the response was tremendous,” said Spune Productions’ Matthew Harber, an Untapped co-founder, in a statement. “The wonderful folks of Fort Worth surprised us all by giving our second sold-out event and have continued to support the festival in a special way.”

Pre-sale tickets for the 2016 Fort Worth Untapped Festival are on sale now, through March 16.

The general public on-sale begins March 17.

General admission to Fort Worth’s Untapped is $29 during the pre-sale (it will rise to $35 for the public on-sale), with the “Beer Package” running $35 pre-sale ($42 public on-sale); the VIP package running $55 pre-sale ($65 public on-sale) and the “Stout Package” setting you back $99 pre-sale ($119 public on-sale).

Additionally, in honor of Untapped’s five-year anniversary, attendees will have the option of purchasing a “season pass,” which grants admission to the Fort Worth Untapped, as well as the Untapped Festivals in Austin (May 14), San Antonio (Sept. 17), Houston (Oct. 22) and Dallas (Nov. 12). Details about purchasing the “season pass” have yet to be revealed.
