UPDATED: Kessler Theater hosts first-ever Oak Cliff Music Festival
It moved to Lake Cliff Park.
OAK CLIFF The Kessler Theater will host its first North Oak Cliff Music Festival on November 3, 2012. The neighborhood, home to the late Stevie Ray Vaughan, plus Erykah Badu and Edie Brickell, "has a rich musical heritage," said Edwin Cabaniss, owner of the Kessler Theater, in a statement.
Bands so far announced for the festival are Carolyn Wonderland, Alejandro Escovedo, and Joe Ely Band.
[UPDATE: Lucky Peterson, Bobby Patterson, Yells at Eels, and Nick Waterhouse have been added to the bill.]
Tickets are $12 in advance or $20 the day of, with VIP tickets also available. Kids 10 and under are free.
Proceeds will help the Winnetka Heights Neighborhood Association.
UPDATE x2: The festival is moving to Lake Cliff Park, located at 300 East Colorado Blvd. in Dallas.
- Lake Cliff Park
1200 North Zang Boulevard
- $12 - $20
“We thought that the festival would one day out grow the neighborhood, we just did not think it would be the first year,” said Cabaniss. “Lake Cliff Park has a great history of providing entertainment and amusement dating back for Dallas residents for over 100 years. We anticipate this location to be home to the North Oak Cliff Music Festival for many years to come.”
The outdoor stages will be set up on the lawn south of the lake, west of the baseball field, and east of the playground. The entrance is at the southeast corner of the park. Parking is free. Bring a lawn chair!
