With seven stages to choose from, there’s sure to be music happening all weekend long. Check out the full lineup below to see everyone performing, as there are far too many amazing artists to list here.

The Workshops

Festivals where you can not only party but learn about fascinating topics are top-tier, and Texas Eclipse is certainly delivering in this category. You can listen to speakers and attend seminars that include astronauts, scientists, professors, yoga teachers, and health and wellness experts.

Topics will include sustainability, psychedelics, culture, AI, space travel, the economy, indigenous experiences, and inner healing.

Some of the most notable names in this category include the legendary Paul Stamets, Dr. Bruce Damer, Hannah Muse, David Casey, Ron Garan, and more. You can have your mind blown by presentations from the Multidisciplinary Association of Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) or attend the massive global meditation, Unify, that will be held during the eclipse.

The Art and Experiences

What’s a music festival without art to gaze at when you’re not dancing at one of the stages or engaging in a seminar? Texas Eclipse will have plenty of exhibits for you and your crew to marvel at, whether it’s live painters or more expansive, interactional pieces.

You can see works from skilled creators like Android Jones, Alex and Allyson Grey, and Chris Dyer, among others. There will also be experiences from collaborations such as Meow Wolf, Grand Artique, and the Black Rock Observatory. Adding to the aesthetic will be LED installations, circus collectives, flow artists spinning fire, and aerial artists performing around the event.

The Venue and Camping

Reveille Peak Ranch is a 1,200-acre paradise with forests, fields, creeks, lakes, and more than 60 miles of trails to explore. This beautiful, diverse landscape will make a perfect backdrop for the four minutes of totality and the festival at large.

Since it’s located away from major cities, the views of the stars at night should be stunning. During the day, you can swim, hike, and romp around the grounds to catch glimpses of the wild animals that roam these lands year-round.

Camping passes are still available, with options and packages for car camping, group camping, RVs, family camping, quiet camping, glamping, and more.

If you’re flying in, you can catch shuttles from the Austin airport and the city itself to make your trip a breeze.

No matter how you spend your time at Reveille Peak Ranch, you certainly won’t be bored. With so much to see, do, and experience, this unique, mesmerizing festival will be reminisced on for years.
