The Levi’s/FADER FORT Returns To Texas

It’s that time of year again, when we pack up the chuckwagon and head south to the Lone Star State for four days of music, parties, hopefully sun and definitely fun. We’re once again joining with Levi’s to build a refuge for all revelers, known defensively as The FORT. The Levi’s/FADER Fort has built a reputation in Austin over the years that we don’t intend to tarnish in 2008, so we’re bringing global talent this year, from Alabama’s Hood Headlinaz to Mexico’s Chikita Violenta to Sweden’s Lykke Li to South Africa’s BLK JKS and all the way back ’round to New York City’s Lou Reed and Thurston Moore, plus a whole cavalry of other great bands. Check the lineup and flyer after the jump, and if you’re going to be down there, try to come by.
