Grizzly Fest May 16th in Fresno, CA
“The Fresno Grizzlies announced they will co-present the inaugural Grizzly Music and Arts Festival with Heineken USA on Saturday, May 16th at Chukchansi Park. Fresno native Fashawn, Brooklyn indie-rockers Delta Spirit, Iamsu!, Ty Segall’s FUZZ, and Kool John lead a lineup of over 15 acts in a festival that also features a skate demo, carnival games, vendor booths featuring local artists, and local food trucks.
The current music lineup includes Fashawn, Delta Spirit, Iamsu!, Ty Segall’s FUZZ, Kool John, Strange Vine, Lou Umbra, Omar Aura, Clouded Vision, 40 Watt Hype, Sahab, Exile, The Kid Ryan, Zee Will and Slow Season.
Fashawn, who headlines the inaugural Grizzly Fest says, “I want to give back to the community that’s been so good to me. Fresno has needed a landmark music and arts festival to raise awareness for all the talent that is located in the Central Valley. My thanks to the Grizzlies for taking the lead on putting this festival together.”
VIP tickets are available for purchase at FresnoGrizzlies.com, but fans can pick up a free general admission ticket to the festival by attending any Triple-A Fresno Grizzlies baseball game through May 11th. Fans attending a Grizzlies game can exchange their game ticket for a festival ticket at the courtesy booth after the completion of the sixth inning.
The $30 VIP ticket includes meet-and-greet opportunities with artists in the air-conditioned Phoenix Club, a commemorative artist pin set, and an exclusive viewing area close to the stage.
“For the evolution of the Grizzlies brand, it’s important for us to stretch over to non-baseball events,” stated Sam Hansen, Grizzlies Director of Marketing. “Triple-A Baseball will always be at the core of what this organization is about, but recruiting and hosting an event such as a music and arts festival embodies the direction of where we’re heading. We want to make sure we’re loyal to Fresno in everything we do.”
Gates to Chukchansi Park open at 3:00 p.m. on the day of the event, with parking available in the H Street Lot for $6.
