Euphoria music festival is returning for the 7th year on May 11-12, 2018 to downtown venues in Austin, TX. #FindYourEuphoria

Finding Euphoria 411

Finding Euphoria is almost here! We’re bringing you the 411 so you know what to expect, where to be, and how to have the best Euphoria experience this weekend.

Venue Locations

Finding Euphoria is taking place at three (walkable!) venues in Downtown Austin’s Red River Cultural District. Red River is the epicenter of live music in Austin, filled with venues, bars, artists and energy.

We are taking over Empire Control Room and Garage, Mohawk, and Barracuda for the festival on May 12, and an additional night at Empire on Friday for the Pre-Party. To make it a three day party, meet us at Vulcan Gas Company nearby on 6th street for Phutureprimitive Thursday.

Empire Control Room and Garage (May 11 and 12)

606 E 7th St, Austin, TX 78701

Mohawk (May 12)

912 Red River St, Austin, TX 78701

Barracuda (May 12)

611 E 7th St, Austin, TX 78701

The best part - You can bounce between these venues on foot. It’s a 5 minutes walk between Empire and Mohawk, a 1 minute walk (across the street!) from between Empire and Barracuda, and a 5 minute walk between Mohawk and Barracuda.

Red River Street is well-lit and active, but it’s always best to walk with friends late at night!

Getting Here

We recommend taking a rideshare or public transit to your first venue stop. Austin offers Uber, Lyft and RideAustin. You can also use www.capmetro.org to plan a bus route from any location.

There are multiple parking options if you choose to drive. Street parking is $1.25 per hour until midnight on Friday and Saturday. There is a public parking lot at 707 East 7th Street, a 1 minute walk from Empire and Barracuda, at the rate of $6.00 per 2 hours. (Parking would have been $20 per day at the Ranch, so you’re saving some $$ here!)

 

Schedule

Check out the schedule! Doors for all venues are at 5:00 p.m.

Hop around between the three venues, or hang out at your favorite! We are capping passes below venue capacity. This should keep lines manageable and make it as easy as possible for you to leave and re-enter venues. Plan accordingly if there is a particular artist you really want to see.

Update on Finding Euphoria 2018

Late yesterday the Euphoria team made the difficult decision to change the venue of Finding Euphoria from our home at Carson Creek Ranch. We are rescheduling the artists from our lineup to venues in Downtown Austin including Mohawk, Barracuda, and Empire Control Room and Garage over the weekend of May 11-12, and in addition to these shows, ticket holders will receive free passes to our next event at Carson Creek Ranch.

We have been working tirelessly to secure the necessary permits to hold Finding Euphoria at Carson Creek Ranch this May, but unfortunately we have not yet obtained the provisional permit that Euphoria Fest has previously been granted every year at the Ranch. While we were initially confident that the permitting issues would be resolved, it is simply not feasible for us to wait any longer.

You have been with us through it all, and we are working to ensure this weekend is an amazing experience for the Euphoria family. Hippie Sabotage, k?d, Medasin, graves, Boogie T, ATLiens and 20+ more artists from the original lineup are confirmed to play, and a full schedule will be released shortly.

Your Finding Euphoria ticket gets you into every show on Saturday May 12, and ticket holders who purchased a Camping Pass also get access to the relocated Camping Pre-Party at Empire Garage on Friday May 11. Campers will receive their Friday ticket via email automatically. Non-campers can RSVP on a first-come, first-served basis to attend the Friday event for free. Refunds will be available for any ticket holder who cannot attend these shows, and the refund request form is available here: bit.ly/FERefundRequest.

Tickets are still on sale for Finding Euphoria, but are nearly sold out due to the capacity of these venues. Purchase your pass soon if you want to be a part of the multi-venue experience next weekend and receive a ticket to our next Carson Creek Ranch event. Those who originally purchased camping will receive an upgraded camping experience at our next event.

We are grateful to the county staff for their work with us on this event, and we are incredibly thankful to the Austin and Euphoria community for your support of our festival every year. Despite the unanticipated changes, we are excited to offer more events and continue to fulfill our vision for Finding Euphoria: creating year-round connections through community and music for the Euphoria family.

 

Thank you for standing by us on this journey.

-The Euphoria Team

FAQ

Why is this happening?

The next opportunity for Finding Euphoria to be granted the necessary permit is on May 8. It is not feasible to take the chance that we will not have the permit at that time - three days before the event.

What are the new events and venues?

The artists on the original lineup will be rebooked at venues in Downtown Austin on May 11-12. The venues include Mohawk, Barracuda, and Empire Control Room and Garage. All ticket holders will be able to access the shows on May 12, and ticket holders who also purchased Camping Passes will be able to access shows on May 11 as well, the rescheduled Camping Pre-Party. Details for our next event at Carson Creek Ranch will be available soon, and all Finding Euphoria ticket holders will be granted free admission to this event.

Will all artists from the lineup perform May 11-12?

We have worked to reschedule as many artists as possible from the original lineup, and are working to release a final schedule shortly.

I have my ticket - what do I do?

No action is necessary at this time. If you purchased a GA, VIP, or Finding Euphoria Series Pass, your ticket will allow you to enter all shows in Downtown Austin May 11-12. You will also receive a complimentary ticket to our next event at Carson Creek Ranch.

I don’t have a ticket - what do I do?

The capacity of the new venues is limited, so tickets are expected to sell out soon. If you purchase before they sell out, your ticket will be good for all shows on May 12 as well as a complimentary ticket to our next event at Carson Creek Ranch.

Are refunds available?

Yes, please fill out this form to request a refund on your purchase: bit.ly/FERefundRequest. Refunds will be available for one week, until 5pm on Thursday May 10, after which time your ticket will grant you access to the shows May 11-12.

Refunds on camping passes will be available until seven days after we announce our next music and camping event. If you do not request a refund, you will receive a comparable or better camping ticket to our next event.

Should I request a refund?

We are trying to create the best possible options for all situations. We think Finding Euphoria in Downtown Austin will be a great experience, with the original lineup in great venues, but camping will not be available. Hold on to your ticket if you would like to attend these shows and our next event, which will provide a camping option for those who originally purchased a camping pass. If you will not be able to attend these shows May 11-12 or would prefer not to wait for details on our next festival, please contact us.

What about Series Pass holders?

You are our most loyal and dedicated Finding Euphoria participants, and we are so glad you are with us. Your Series Pass will continue giving you access to all Euphoria events throughout 2018. Contact us with questions.

Who can I contact with questions?

Please contact hello@euphoriafest.com with general inquiries.

 

Life Under The Wheel

Life’s journey is not linear. The experiences we live and the people we meet all contribute to who we are as a person. Each year at Euphoria, our lives are changed by the community that gathers at our festival. 

Screen Shot 2018-04-27 at 10.44.52 AM.png

Last year one of our very special guests, Chris, got to meet his hero Alan Walker and share a life changing moment together, showing us the meaning of strength. In 2016, another member of our family, Jessica, was able to “push the button” during Above & Beyond after winning her battle with cancer.

This year, we want to continue our tradition and grow with our community by making dreams come true. Please nominate someone in your life who wants to live in the moment and find their Euphoria, despite their life-threatening illness. We love our family, and we excitedly welcome our future guest.
