Get Gobsmacked At The AT&T Performing Arts Center, Watch JFK Documentaries At Texas Theatre And Drop The Beat With Lil Pump At South Side Music Hall.
So Oaktopia 2017 was last weekend and while the music was popping, there maybe could have been a bit more of a festival vibe to it.
As we wrote about yesterday in our coverage about the former Denton festival, most of the action on Friday was concentrated at The Bomb Factory. It was there that 21 Savage and Lil Yachty got the crowds going, while the next door Canton Hall was a a bit light on a crowd.
It was clear the second night that the lower temperatures and strong winds were going to play a role in keeping the crowds where they were. The trek to Trees from Bomb Factory or Canton Hall wasn’t really worth it because the big acts on the night were set to play at the Factory.
And while Oaktopia was cool, it definitely could have used a bit more of a festival feel, and we’re hoping that the festival organizers manage to build that at some point come future festivals in Dallas. But until then, there’s plenty to do like the list of things below going on in town tonight. — Obed Manuel
