The Fort Worth Music Festival celebrates Cowtown’s diverse sonic heritage by corralling a herd of national and Texas-size acts that fill the weekend with shuffling genres and sweet harmonies. Friday’s lineup of note peddlers includes the surrealistic sounds of Ween’s Gene Ween and Dave Dreiwitz (5 p.m.), the legendary grunge and marionette work of The Meat Puppets (6:45 p.m.), the heart-tugging country of four-time Grammy nominee Marcia Ball (7:30 p.m.), and the cheek-swelling trumpet virtuosity of Kermit Ruffins (9 p.m.). Saturday’s lineup sizzles like a jukebox with bacon speakers, engaging audiences with more acts, including the dynamic folk-mutation of Denton’s Seryn (3:30 p.m.), the sultry jazz of Tatiana Mayfield (7:30 p.m.), and the wallop of gospel tenor saxophonist Kirk Whalum (9 p.m.).

Bass Gold Medalist.

Thousands upon thousands of wild mustangs roam the public lands in America's West, living independent of humans and their delicious salt licks. However, when herds become overpopulated or threatened, the Bureau of Land Management steps in to save these horses. The untamed mustangs require extensive training and care before they can ride trails. That's where The Supreme Extreme Mustang Makeover's trainers come in. Each year, they adopt these wild horses, train them for only 120 days, and enter them into competitions across the country.
At each Supreme Extreme Mustang Makeover event, judges award hundreds of thousands of dollars to the best trainers and their horses as they ride their mustangs and perform spectacular feats. However, despite the money and the crowd's applause, the primary goal of these events remains mustang preservation; since its founding in 2007, The Supreme Extreme Mustang Makeover has facilitated the adoption of more than 3,300 American mustangs.
