Back at you for round 2 – Sound on Sound Festival (aka SOS Fest) holds steady at being a truly one-of-a-kind gathering that breaks the mold of the modern music festival. Curators behind the festival recently announced the full SOS Fest lineup for the second coming of this epic party in the heart of Central Texas, and it is beyond for the books! Hosting, yet again, a vast array of musical acts; SOS’s eclectic lineup is accompanied by a variety of comedic acts, panel sessions and environmental aesthetic matching activities.
For the weekend of November 10th -12th, Sherwood Forest, a 23-acre permanent renaissance village in the Lost Pine Forest will be the very integral part of this festival experience. Just 35 miles from downtown Austin, this unique location has everything festie-goers could need, from killer VIP packages that include dedicated lounges and facilities, expanded shuttle and transportation options, on-site camping and amenities throughout.
The bad-ass-ness of the location and hard work behind this festival is evenly matched in this year's lineup. SOS-goers will get to see the beloved indie act, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, after the groups 4-year hiatus. Another notable, do-not-miss headliner is punk rock godfather Iggy Pop, going super hard after last year's Grammy-nominated album, Post Pop Depression.
Fellow Grammy nominated sextet, The Shins, are also set to rock the stage, sharing with festie-goers tracks from their recent album, Heartworms, that was released in March after the bands 5-year recording hiatus.
