It was announced Feb. 6, 2017 that known local music fest 35 Denton will not be taking place this year.
Few details were provided and other than a post on Facebook, officials haven’t had any other comments. In the post it is only mentioned that the festival simply won’t be happening this year but leaves a rather ambiguous feeling that it may return in the future.
If this isn’t the end but only a hiatus, it would be the spring festival’s second extended break. 35 Denton, which has been known by several other names, got its start as a showcase for Denton performers at SXSW around 2005 before becoming a weekend event back in North Texas in 2009. The festival peaked sometime in between 2010 and 2013 before its biggest investors and creative team left.
After taking a break back in 2014, it came back to life for 2015 and last year 2016.
