This Week In Festival News (March 7-11)
Ubbi Dubbi Festival Location Change Announcement
With just over a month until the festival ignites in full force, Ubbi Dubbi Festival organizer Disco Donnie Presents announced that the highly-anticipated festival will move back to its old Panther Island grounds in Fort Worth, Texas. Although this might be a controversial decision for many, duty calls and the festival has to go ahead and do what’s best to ensure that attendees have the top-notch festival experience that they deserve. Sadly, this does mean that the debut camping aspect of this year’s edition will not be happening. However, refunds will be provided for those who purchased tickets with a camping option.
On a positive note, from April 23-25, festival-goers will get the opportunity to dance their worries away to some of the most standout artists in dance music at the original venue that the festival has always called home. After gaining tremendous recognition as the “first festival back” following last year’s exhilarating production, we can’t wait to discover what this upcoming 2022 edition of Ubbi Dubbi Festival has to offer despite these last-minute changes. After all, everything happens for a reason.
Tickets to Ubbi Dubbi Festival are still available.
