TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Country music singer and East Texas native Koe Wetzel has announced plans for a hometown music festival in March.
Koe Wetzel’s Incredible Music Festival is partnering with Radio Texas, LIVE! With Buddy Logan and 101.5 KNUE on the show, which will include performances from several other bands local to East Texas.
“I am so excited to be doing this. It’s something that I’ve always wanted to do, put on my own music festival,” Wetzel said. “And to do it right here in East Texas, where I grew up, I’m pumped. It’s gonna be fun. It’s gonna be great. It’s gonna be incredible. It’s going to be my incredible music festival and I’m bringing it home to East Texas!”
Wetzel is a Pittsburgh High School graduate and will headline the four-act music lineup. The concert will include performances by Parker McCollum, JB and the Moonshine Band and Chris Colston, concert promoters announced.
Wetzel broke out in the Texas scene after the 2016 release of his album, “Noise Complaint,” and his crowds have never been the same – in Texas and around the United States. Wetzel’s music has more than 300,000 monthly listeners on Spotify and his top 10 songs have been streamed more than 35 million times. Top hits include “Something to Talk About,” “Austin” and “February 28, 2016.” “Austin” was the third-most streamed Texas/Red Dirt song on Spotify in 2018.
“The underground swell of support this East Texas native has tapped into is amazing, it’s a once-in-a-generation phenomenon. The future is here, and it’s putting on a festival in Lindale this March,” said Buddy Logan, host of Radio Texas, LIVE! “We’ll be doing this every year, but there will only ever be one inaugural Koe Wetzel’s Incredible Music Festival, and it’ll be something you tell your kids about. Be there with us. We couldn’t be more proud to team up with the face of the Texas Music’s next generation to bring East Texas one of the biggest festivals it will ever see.”
The inaugural Koe Wetzel’s Incredible Music Festival is coming to Darden Harvest Park next to The Cannery in Lindale on Saturday, March 23. Tickets are available now at the official Koe Wetzel Festival site.
