Originated in 2016, DUSK Music Festival is a music, food, and arts festival held annually in Arizona. Originally, DUSK was held at the historic Rillito Downs in Tucson, Arizona which suited an average of six to nine-thousand attendees. For 2018, however, DUSK is being relocated to Armory Park in Downtown Tucson.
Arts, Feasts, and Entertainment, Galore!
DUSK is known for its live entertainment, feasts, and arts for the entire family. They’re bringing in 30 different local restaurants and food vendors specifically chosen by The Gastronomic Union of Tucson (GUT). GUT has curated a menu with a range of options for attendees so any price range or food item will fit you best. You’ll also be able to see Tucson art crafted by the Monsoon Collective team! There will be sculptures built beyond your wildest imagination, intriguing digital art, creative video projections and gorgeous lighting displays throughout downtown Tucson. DUSK wants to inspire attendees and ensure that your experience is one full of beauty and creativity. Between sets, enjoy some fun playtime over at the Tucson Plays area. You’ll find life-sized lawn games, classic arcade games and outdoor games such as corn hole, ping pong and ladderball.
A Little Piece of DUSK to Take Home
Don’t forget to head on over to the Tucson Shops for a souvenir to look back at and remember all the amazing memories you made the past weekend. These shops will have items ranging from accessories, apparel and artwork to find something for yourself or someone back home! Not only do shops accept cash, credit and debit payments but there will also be ATMS available at the park.
A Taste of DUSK’s Lineup
Now onto the most exciting of all, the stacked diverse lineup! The lineup includes amazing local talent like Mother Tierra and Sur Block. DUSK also includes big names such as Dillon Francis, Phantogram, Big Gigantic, Cold War Kids, Jai Wolf, and Elohim. With a lineup this diverse, we highly recommend you catch a little bit of everyone’s sets. You don’t want to miss out on these artists and their incredible sounds. In order to get a taste of what you’ll be listening to at the festival, DUSK has created an official Spotify playlist which you can check out below!
I, for one, am excited to experience what this festival is all about because to me it sounds like a mix of Air + Style and Coachella mixed into a 2 day rager. Get your tickets now before it sells out! This is an event you don’t want to miss out on.
