  • Overview

    Organizers of 515 Alive Music Festival, a two-day electronic and hip-hop event in its 16th year, announced plans to return August 17 & August 18 to Water Works Park, its second year at the location. 

    Following years of bouncing between downtown, Western Gateway Park and East Village venues, the festival turned to Water Works to host the 2017 edition, adding overnight camping to event amenities. The festival brought five stages and about 80 acts to the park last August. 

    Past acts to appear at the festival include Excision, Machine Gun Kelly, Waka Flocka Flame, Gucci Mane, Tech N9ne, Zeds Dead and more. 

    Camping, for attendees age 18 and up, plans to be offering again in 2018, a 515 Alive Facebook post said. 

    A lineup for the 2018 festival is yet to be announced.
