Untapped Festival organizers are excited to announce that on March 8, 2014 Untapped Fest will return to Panther Island Pavilion in Fort Worth for the second year in a row. Untapped is also pleased to announce line-up additions of Lucius, “old school” hip hop act, People Under the Stairs and a special collaboration between Dallas hip hop newcomers, Sam Lao and –topic. “It is very important to Untapped Fest organizers to continue to introduce emerging national and local acts while bringing back old favorites that we all know and love,” says marketing manager, Annette Marin.
In the next couple of weeks, the Untapped Beer list will be released with the aim of living up to the standard set with previous events. “We’re hard at work on this year’s beer list and expect it’ll continue to set the bar for Texas Beer Festivals. We’re especially excited to welcome a few new breweries to the event this year, including Odell, Southern Tier and Jester King,” says beer guru and Untapped organizer, Corey Pond.
The ongoing goal of Untapped Fest is to introduce new beers to casual craft beer drinkers, bring rare and unique brews to the more seasoned beer connoisseur and curate an equally interesting lineup of national and local artists. We experience the most amazing mingling of beer and music crowds at each of our festivals and continue to find strong correlations between these groups and the manner in which they choose the things they like. Untapped festivalgoers are tastemakers and we are lucky to have the opportunity to bridge the gap between beer and music lovers while continuing to grow craft beer awareness.
