Fort Worth-based Clearfork Music Festival set for Sept. 21

Posted 8:54am on Tuesday, Aug. 06, 2013

Festivals are fast becoming fixtures around North Texas.

What were once occasional happenings — 35 Denton; Fort Worth Music Festival; Mayfest, etc. — have become monthly, if not weekly occurrences. The gathering of several bands at once makes financial sense, not only for promoters, but fans as well. And done well, these single- and multi-day events can provide a lot of entertainment bang for the buck.

But festival fatigue has yet to set in, because promoters keep putting them together and people keep showing up.

The latest of these, the Clearfork Music Festival, mounted by the music blog Keep Texas Live, will make its maiden voyage Sept. 21 at the Heart of the Ranch at Clearfork in southwest Fort Worth.

Headlined by buzzy folk-rock band He’s My Brother, She’s My Sister, the rest of the line-up skews heavily local (and almost entirely Fort Worthian): Whiskey Folk Ramblers, the Birds of Night, Foxtrot Uniform, We’rewolves, the Effinays, the Longshots and Animal Spirit have been announced thus far.

Tickets (available now via presale) run from $15 for general admission up to $40 for what’s called the “fancy pants VIP” pass, which nets attendees access to several perks, including “preferred parking,” a catered dinner and “free swag,” as well as a private bar and viewing areas.
