Rockin’ the River has a whole new atti-TUBE!

Saturdays at Panther Island Pavilion just got a lot cooler this summer, July 1-August 5.

FORT WORTH, TX – Rockin’ the River is back and ready to ramp up your summer! The popular music and tubing series, in its seventh year, is back at Panther Island Pavilion and is making the switch from an extended happy hour on Thursday to an all-day Saturday party. With five bands and a fireworks show each week, it will be a fist-full of festivals live on the Trinity River that can be enjoyed from a tube or the shaded shore. “We are pleased to deliver what our fans have been asking – to rock the river on the weekend,” said Trinity River Vision Authority Executive Director, J.D. Granger.

Each week, the gates will open at 1:00pm with five different bands playing back-to-back sets beginning around 2:15pm on the Coors Light Waterfront Stage. After the headlining band finishes at 8:15pm, we will clear the water and bring the party to the shore with the fifth and final band playing until 9:15pm on the Pacifico Stage. In addition live music on two stages; food and beverage options will be available for purchase, as well as tube and watersport rentals. Vendors will also be on-site selling cool ‘must-have’ stuff. Rain or shine, we rock the river. In the event of inclement weather, the party does not stop. We simply move the fun over to The Shack. Nightcap? You bet. Each event ends with a fireworks show right on the banks of the Trinity River.

Thirty bands over the six-week music series will perform at Rockin’ the River, including top Texas Country artists with a little rock and soul sprinkled in the mix. Kicking off the festival series on July 1 is headliner Zane Williams. Other acts throughout the summer include Prophets and Outlaws, Shane Smith and the Saints, Zac Wilkerson and more. Check out the full band line-up and other details on our website at: rockintheriverfw.com.

 

Rockin’ the River is presented by Andrews Distributing Company and Coors Light. It is generously sponsored by North Texas Marine, Backwoods Fort Worth, Margaritaville, 95.9 The Ranch and produced by the Trinity River Vision Authority.
