35 Denton Announces A New, End-of-Summer Bash.
Just when you thought it was safe to stop talking about 35 Denton, the folks behind the four-day March music festival went ahead and made a move to remain in our collective consciousness today by announcing the unveiling of a new, one-day, end-of-summer event called The Hot Wet Mess.
The event, scheduled to take place on Saturday, September 1, at the North Texas State Fairgrounds in Denton, will feature four bands and a whole lot of debauchery, promises 35 Denton creative director Kyle La Valley.
“We wanted something that was kind of a deviation from the festival,” she says. “We're going to be getting more into event production in the future, and this is the first of these events. It's just going to be an awesome party.”
It'll be a wet one, too, she says, although she's mum on how, exactly, she means.
“It's not going to just be a straightforward thing with band playing after band,” she says. “There will be more going on, especially in terms of wetness.”
At the moment, that's pretty much all she's willing to reveal, on matters of wetness or otherwise — except to say that the event is all-ages, that the bands on the bill will mostly be touring acts, and that one of the confirmed performers has performed at a previous 35 Denton festival.
Oh, and this: “There will definitely be some local flavor, too,” La Valley says, while again choosing not to get any more detailed in the matter.
Starting next week, she says, the performers for The Hot Wet Mess will be introduced one at a time, each through video promos.
By the end of June, La Valley promises, the lineup should be fully revealed.
As of today, however, blind pre-sale tickets are already on sale at a discounted $10 rate. Get them right here.
“It's kind of a perfect time for an event like this since that's right when school gets back in session,” La Valley says. “We'd like to turn this into an annual thing. That's the plan.”
