HOCO FEST 2018 is held on August 29 – September 2, 2018 at Hotel Congress, 311 E Congress St., Tucson, AZ.

A rising cultural hub and longtime artistic oasis, Tucson, Arizona’s historic Hotel Congress is once again hosting the annual HOCO Fest, a distinctively curated festival combining tastemaking musical acts, Tucson’s best venues and locations, and the vibrant, inspiring spirit of the desert community. HOCO Fest strives to encapsulate more than just the typical music festival, hosting sunrise after-parties, daytime pool parties, vintage clothing and vinyl fairs, yoga classes, workshops, and of course, unparalleled tastings from the UNESCO City of Gastronomy.

Boasting an eclectic, carefully curated selection of artists for this year’s festivities, Tucson, Arizona’s HOCO Fest will host over 50 musical acts. The lineup spans cult heroes and legends of their own right Andrew W.K. and Lil B, up-and-comers Boy Harsher and Black Marble, desert-grown heavy hitters Destruction Unit and Spirit Adrift, the hottest in overseas imports, Dean Blunt and Bad Gyal, and many more. Tickets are now on sale for the five-day extravaganza, and day passes will be available for individual performances. For the full lineup, please see below.
