Hold on to your flower crowns, there’s a new festival in town. Bulladora Music Experience debuts this weekend, June 3-5, at Reverchon Park in the heart of Dallas, and promises a festival experience like none you’ve encountered in Dallas before.
“The type of event we were craving didn’t exist here, so we set out to create it,” said Bulladora co-founder Zac Miller. “Something with great music, but also imagination and whimsy. We’re dressing pugs in wings and horns for a Pugasus Petting Zoo… this isn’t your average festival.”
With headliners Yeasayer and AlunaGeorge, the indie-pop lineup also includes Washed Out, Cheat Codes, MOTHXR, JR JR, Shamir, POWERS, XYLØ, Great Good Fine Ok, Paperwhite, and Lostboycrow.
“We had a definite focus when curating the lineup — is the act relevant, and will their energy and creativity rub off on people?” -Josh Harris
“We had a definite focus when curating the lineup — is the act relevant, and will their energy and creativity rub off on people? There are challenges in crafting a progressive lineup like ours, but the ride we’re going to take attendees on each day is totally worth it,” Bulladora co-founder and talent director Josh Harris said.
The Bulladora team reached out to Kimber Westphall at Ruthie’s Marketing & Events to assist with promotion of the event. The RME team thought it was a seamless partnership that focused on community togetherness.
While founded on musical entertainment, Bulladora offers an overall experience of excitement and adventure with a variety of sense-stimulating activities. Organized by a group of Dallasites aiming to unite and propel their city’s thriving cultural scene, Bulladora is focused on the details and quality of every aspect of the event.
To execute this vision, Bulladora has also partnered with Event Southwest, the production company behind the Dallas Marathon and many other high profile events in Texas, as well as talent buyer and coordinator Kris Norvet of Norvet Creative.
