Hold on to your asses, because it’s going to get loud, heavy, twangy, country, and crunchy when Cody Jinks circles the wagons in his native Ft. Worth and puts on one hell of a party he’s dubbing the Loud and Heavy Fest on Saturday, August 18th at the Panther Island Pavilion.
Featuring Southern rockers Whiskey Myers, metal band Corrosion of Conformity, Austin metal Gods The Sword, hard country crooners Whitey Morgan, Ward Davis, Paul Cauthen, reigning Saving Country Music Song of the Year winner Sunny Sweeney, throwback Highway Queen Nikki Lane, and modern day folk hero Colter Wall, there will be a little something for everyone.
And this will not be your typical festival at your typical venue. Texas is balls hot in August ladies and gentlemen, and the Panther Island Pavilion is positioned in the heart of Ft. Worth, right on the banks of the Trinity River, with the city skyline flanking it in the back. This means there’s an option for you to go for a soak, or straight up hang out in the river all day as your choice of seating while bands play. There is also hilltop seating and plenty of open space for folks who don’t want to get their toes wet.
Personally curated by Cody Jinks himself, the event is meant to be the premier gathering point of his dedicated fans known as the Flockers. There will also be plenty of food beverages, kids activities, and artisan vendors available.
Cody Jinks recently announced that he’s signed with independent music juggernaut Rounder Records, and will be releasing his latest album Lifers on July 27. The album release will serve as a good backdrop for Loud and Heavy Fest. A new Cody Jinks single “Must Be The Whiskey” will be out June 15th.
