Oaktopia Fest Annouces Lineup & New Location
Five years ago, Denton’s inaugural Oaktopia festival was launched. Since its launch, the festival has hosted a variety of acts, including Aesop Rock, XXYYXX, Baths, Thundercat, and much more. It is a fairly inexpensive gathering for lovers of indie and electronic music and has proven to be a hit among North Texas college students.
On its fifth anniversary, the acclaimed Oaktopia festival will see many changes. The festival will now take place on November 17th-18th, rather than its usual late September slot. Also, the festival will be moving from Denton to Dallas’s Deep Ellum neighborhood. While many Dentonites are upset about the new festival location, this is the best move for Oaktopia to make as the festival continues to grow in popularity.
Tickets and passes are still relatively inexpensive, with general admission beginning at $49.50. This is a great deal, considering the acts that will be on the bill.
This year’s lineup consists of huge names, including A-Trak, Phantogram, 21 Savage, Baauer, and much more to be announced. The artists on the roster will be performing at various venues around Dallas’s Deep Ellum neighborhood, including Bomb Factory, Trees, and Canton Hall.
Parking in the Deep Ellum neighborhood will be limited, however, festival attendees have the luxury of arriving to and leaving from Oaktopia via Dallas Area Rapid Transit’s green line, which will be running on both Friday and Saturday of that week.
Overall, the changes being made to this year’s Oaktopia will make for a better festival experience. Deep Ellum is a lot more spacious than Denton, which will allow for festival goers to move more freely about sets and performances.
More performers are set to be announced in the weeks to come, however, you can follow our Oaktopia playlist on Spotify for a taste of what to expect at this year’s fifth Oaktopia festival. More tracks will be added as more artists are announced.
