The intimate music and camping festival is still on for March 16-17 at Camp Lucy Resort in Dripping Springs. The event team has reportedly taken precautionary measures onsite to protect attendees, including adding more hand sanitizer stations, and anyone who is symptomatic is asked to stay home.
"We understand that this is a new and fluid situation, and will work to update our ticket purchasers with new information as it becomes available to us," says a release.
As Austin and its surrounding areas reel from the impact of SXSW's cancellation — both economic and emotional — Campfire Gathering is emphasizing its local roots.
"We would like to extend our deepest sympathies to those affected by the recent cancellation of SXSW, especially those in the service, hospitality, and creative industries," the release continues. "As a local independent event producer, we recognize the difficulties this unexpected occurrence brings and empathize with those affected. Now, more than ever, our team feels motivated to support all the local workers, businesses, and artists who are helping to bring the inaugural Campfire Gathering to fruition by moving forward with our own event next week."
Campfire Gathering promises a boutique experience where every ticket-holder is a VIP. The festival was designed to be so intimate that only 500 tickets are being sold, ensuring each guest receives a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
The lineup includes Austin's own Shakey Graves, Nashville star Margo Price, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Delta Spirit (and its frontman, Matthew Logan Vasquez, performing a solo set), White Denim, Colter Wall, Canadian masked singer Orville Peck, rock group Deer Tick, Sir Woman, and Nikki Lane.
Experience up-close-and-personal chapel sessions curated by renowned Austin singer/songwriter/producer Bruce Robison, set against the backdrop of a fully restored, 19th-century French Colonial chapel from Vietnam.
Your ticket not only grants unlimited music access but also complimentary meals from morning to night. Chefs will be sourcing local products to prepare a mix of Texas-inspired dishes and classic camping favorites — think wine tastings, charcuterie boards, campfire s'mores, Frito pies, and more.
