The Levi’s®/FADER Fort Returns To Texas

It’s that time of year again! We’re heading to Austin for four days of heavy jams, good times and complimentary dranks. Just like previous years, we’ve linked up with Levi’s® to bring you The Levi’s®/FADER Fort (this year located at 1101 E. 5th Street between San Marcos & Waller), also known as the best way you can spend four days in Texas. We’re playing host to everyone from Wavves to Rick Ross, Abe Vigoda to Little Boots and Blank Dogs to Peter Bjorn & John. Trust us when we tell you that those are just a few highlights from the packed solid lineup. While in Austin, text FORT to FADER (32337) to get Levi’s®/FADER Fort updates on your mobile device, RSVP here if you haven’t already and check the full (and fully awesome) lineup after the jump.

This year’s Levi’s®/FADER fort is made possible by East Village Radio, Guitar Center, Skull Candy, Xbox, Ray-Ban, Shockhound, Budweiser, Budweiser American Ale, Southern Comfort, Pepsi and the Ace Hotel
