Set in the heart of downtown Tucson, Jacome Plaza is set to host the fifth annual Dusk Music Festival. Dusk is one of Arizona’s most unique festivals, bringing together a spectrum of musical artists, a dazzling lineup of food options, and one of the best interactive art exhibits Arizona has to offer. Prepare yourself, because this is one weekend that you won’t want to miss.
The lineup for Dusk makes a statement. The organizers brought together a range of artists for both days of the festival to accommodate almost any music taste. The lineup on Saturday is stacked, bringing together the likes of Diplo, Jimmy Eat World, Duke Dumont, and many more incredible talents. Sunday affirms what a final day festival lineup should look like, as Porter Robinson, Grouplove, SG Lewis, and John Summit are just a few of the acts set to take the stage.
Dusk put together an array of choices for food this year. Teaming up with Tucson Foodie, they are able to bring in the culinary likes of Gastronomic Union of Tucson, Dante’s Fire, Culinary Dropout, and Zinburger as well as local favorites like Empire Pizza, Rollies Mexican Patio, and Jake’s Donuts & Treat Trolley.
The art this year will also be eye-catching. Tucson ARTS will feature a wide variety of displays this year, including live art, larger-than-life sculptures, digital art, video production, and lighting displays throughout downtown Tucson and the Jacome Plaza festival grounds. Also exciting this year, Tucson PLAYS and Tucson SHOPS have been activated. Tucson PLAYS features a variety of backyard games and classic arcade games from Cobra Arcade Tucson. The Tucson SHOPS market provides a means for all of your shopping needs. Finally, the GREENROOM returns this year, providing a professional, positive, fun, and interactive space for festival attendees to learn about the Arizona medical and adult-use cannabis programs.
Dusk has been part of Tucson for five years now and it keeps getting better each year. Come prepared, because Dusk has put together an unforgettable experience for this weekend. And if you haven’t acquired tickets yet and still want to go, visit www.DUSKmusicfestival.com.
