Float Fest comes to Gonzales County


After several years on hiatus, Float Fest 2022 is finally here and expected to bring community fellowship and some of the biggest names in entertainment to the Gonzales County area for a weekend of fun and activities.

Many artists, including Vampire Weekend, Marshmello, deadmau5, Cage the Elephant, Chance the Rapper, Aly & AJ, Lord Huron, CHVRCHES, Quinn XCII, Pusha T, Tove Lo, Two Feet, Sir Woman, Madeline the Person, and Blossom Aloe, among many others, are set to perform during the festival. Those attending are able to float the water, camp and listen to music from over 25 artists on two stages.

Float Fest will be staged July 23-24 on the Guadalupe River at a 765-acre private ranch on County Road 197, just off US 183 south of the Gonzales city limits. Major activity at the site will actually begin the day before, on Friday, July 22, in what organizers call “load-in day” as the ranch opens up to those who will be camping on-site.

The event is considered one of the Top 50 music festivals in North America by a number of publications. As many as 15,000 individuals are expected to be on site.
