Koe Wetzel’s Incredible Music Festival 2019

Koe Wetzel brought the party to Panther Island Pavilion on September 14, 2019

The first Koe Wetzel’s Incredible Music Festival at Panther Island Pavilion was a sell-out event! Koe partied along with Parker McCollum, Cody Canada & the Departed, and Chris Colston. Attendees enjoyed a large 50-foot water slide, Ferris wheel, mustache rides and the more. The night ended with a BANG, a large fireworks show was viewed by many!

Koe Wetzel Announced Next Incredible Music Festival

Koe Wetzel is bringing his second Incredible Music Festival to Panther Island Pavilion on  September 14. Joining him will be Park McCollum, Cody Canada & The Departed, and Chris Colston for an all day party!

Catch what RADIO TEXAS,LIVE! has to say about the Koe and his festival!

“After he doubled the population of Lindale, Texas earlier this year with the first one, Koe Wetzel has announced his next Incredible Music Festival. On September 14th, Koe and the boys are heading to Panther Island Pavilion in Fort Worth — and as billed this show promises to be nothing short of incredible.

In June, Koe surprised fans and released his highly anticipated followup to Noise Complaint. Without presales, major label help, or really any outside promotion, Harold Saul High see-sawed back and forth between No. 1 and No. 2 for most of release week. A giant accomplishment for the independent Texan.

One big question many fans had regarding the album, where did the title come from? Koe told us, “Since ‘Noise Complaint’ I’ve lost my best friend and my uncle. They were both huge fans and never got to see where we are today. So I made up a high school with their names in it. The album as a whole is a high school themed album.”

Ranch Bash Returns!

Ranch Bash returns to Panther Island Pavilion on October 19! Check out what Visit Fort Worth has to say about the great event.

“95.9 FM The Ranch has defiantly rejected mainstream country while supporting Texas, red dirt and Americana music. The station has a loyal fan base, and every fall hosts a celebration of sorts for them called Ranch Bash. This year’s 10 bands for $15 bucks lineup includes Casey Donahew, Shane Smith & The Saints, Sam Riggs, Josh Weathers, Copper Chief, Kolby Cooper, Vincent Neil Emerson, Ross Shifflett, James Cook and one more act to be announced.”
