The Sloss Fest lineup is out and we finally know what we’re in for, aside from sweltering hot temps and a music-filled weekend in Birmingham, Alabama.
The Sloss Music & Arts Festival lineup dropped at 7:30 a.m. this morning, and I am not a morning person, but I kind of had to be today. Fellow non-morning people, no worries! I suffered through the morning hours to hear that sweet, sweet lineup of talent coming to us this summer. More specifically, July 14th & 15th.
In its 4th year, Sloss Fest has shown no signs of slowing down. The festival takes place at historic Sloss Furnaces right in the heart of Birmingham’s beginnings.
Okay, you came for the lineup.
As in the past, the 40ish acts listed above will play on four different stages on the campus of Sloss Furnaces. Shed, Blast, Steam and Seasick Stage (this is where most of the local talent will be!).
Some hints of this year’s acts were dropped along the way the past two weeks.
If you’re a music trivia whiz and actually like the guessing game, you might have picked up on a few of these before today. Did you guess any of them correctly?
Neon lights. Red. Hot. = “Red Hot Lights”, a song by Moon Taxi. Easy! On to the next.
Fun fact: Two of the founding members of Moon Taxi (Trevor Terndrup and Tommy Putnam) are natives of Vestavia Hills.
The #SlossSecret was prefaced with the word ‘surprise’. Rainbow colors. 7 tick marks. = Rainbow Kitten Surprise. They have a song called “Seven”.
Literally, no pets allowed. No wolves especially. This one took some sleuthing. = Jai Wolf. He used to go by the stage name of No Pets Allowed.
La tour Eiffel. Paris. Sky and fire. Heaven and Hell. Upside down? = PVRIS. Their newest album is called All We Know Of Heaven, All We Need Of Hell.
Bounce house. Mardi Gras colors. = Big Freedia. She’s the queen of the New Orleans bounce genre.
Tickets go on sale Friday, January 19th at 10 a.m.
The official countdown clock is at the bottom of the Sloss Fest website. Not like we weren’t counting down to July 14th and 15th already.
