Save the dates: Summer Cut and Index music festivals return in 2014
They are just two of many more coming this year.
DALLAS The ice has thawed and spring is a not-so-distant reality, which means festival season is on its way. Both KXT Summer Cut and Index music festivals announced respective dates for 2014 this week.
Summer Cut music fest will return on Friday, August 15. The three-year old festival is hosted annually by radio station 91.7 KXT and has previously featured indie sensations like The Flaming Lips, St. Vincent, The Avett Brothers and Grace Potter and the Nocturnals. The festival has been hosted at Fair Park's Gexa Energy Pavilion the last two years, though the venue for 2014 has not been officially announced.
The slightly more obscure Index festival is slated for the weekend of September 26-28, three weeks earlier than last year. This, too, is a third-year party that in 2012 included more than 100 bands across nine venues in Deep Ellum. We loved the fact Index provided an incubator for local talent and businesses, although crowds seemed thin with so many bands performing in so many different places.
Summer Cut and Index are just the latest in a slew of festivals dominating Dallas-Fort Worth in 2014. Click the links below for info about other upcoming events.
Homegrown Music Festival, May 10: The Toadies will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of their breakthrough record Rubberneck all year, including a headlining performance at Dallas' 5th annual Homegrown Fest at Main Street Garden. More info.
