The hand wringing really kicked in after the In Bloom lineup was released and as we welcomed the new year with zero details of San Antonio's newest festival. Without any of the usual Student Discounts or heavy promotion, we have been anticipating a cancellation, especially with Houston's new festival exploding out of the gate.
Botanica Fest has been reduced to a single day event, with Deftones, Logic, Lil Yachty, Alessia Cara, San Antonio's Femina-X and Carlton Zeus. It also appears to have a new component that features Fiesta TX itself. They will be using park to host the fest. The stages, concessions, restrooms, food, security, all will be existing park infrastructure. The fest will bring in extra lighting, screens and and sound. Tickets start at $90 (fees included) for GA, parking and VIP will cost you extra. From the festival's website:
The inaugural Botanica Music Festival takes place March 3, 2018 at Six Flags Fiesta Texas in San Antonio. Botanica is a family friendly event that features over 20 performers on multiple stages, from international touring acts to local favorites, as well as fun activities, amazing local food, signature beverages, and more. In addition, we are excited to announce that all attendees will have full and exclusive access to the rides of Six Flags Fiestaas part of the event ticket. PLUS, the park will be debuting its new Wonder Woman Golden Lasso roller coaster that weekend just for us!
This event is brought to you by a team of local San Antonio music lovers, including professionals in the concert industry. We hope to make the Botanica Music Festival an annual event that will build on the excitement we all feel for our amazing city!
