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.).
VIP ticketholders are privy to sweet perks that add icing to the festival’s cake, including private, air-conditioned restrooms, a cash bar, access to shaded outdoor lounge furniture, and theatrical seating with sightline views ideal for catching the license-plate numbers of runaway jams. General-admission ticketholders are invited to bring along their favorite chair, protective blanket, or housetrained ottoman. Between the amazing feats of musical dexterity, festival-goers can indulge in cooking classes from area chefs or treat their eyes to an assembly of dazzling artwork, featuring expressionist paintings, sculptures, and jewelry made from bullets.
