Panther Island Pavilion

Located in the heart of Fort Worth, along the banks of the Trinity River, there’s no other venue in Texas that’s better suited for Loud and Heavy’s debut than the beautiful Panther Island Pavilion. Guests at the very first Loud & Heavy Festival will enjoy numerous acres of festival space and 2 stages of music featuring 10 hand-picked artists by Cody himself. Local food vendors, space for childrens activities, art, exclusive merchandise, and exciting sponsors are also on tap for this special celebration. Access to the beach, riverfront tubing and water activities are available until 7PM outside the festival gates for an additional fee (visit Backwoods Paddlesports for more details), all with a view of DFW’s downtown skyline.

After you park your car, you will cross the Trinity River via the walking bridge that drops you directly into the venue for Loud and Heavy. The main entrance, Box Office, and VIP entrances will all be on the venue side of the walking bridge. Panther Island Pavilion is connected to 72 miles of beautiful trails via the Trinity Trails network and offers easy access to Sundance Square, with world-class shopping, restaurants and bars. With the highest decibel levels in the city, PIP will allow us to stay true to our name as we go Loud & Heavy all afternoon and evening on August 18th!
