Take me to the river: Float Fest lineup is hotter than July

UPDATE: Cold War Kids replaced Glass Animals on the bill after the British indie band’s drummer suffered a serious injury.

Tame Impala, Snoop Dogg, Bassnectar, Run the Jewels, Glass Animals and Modest Mouse are among nearly two dozen acts set for Float Fest, taking place July 21-22 along the San Marcos River just east of San Marcos.

The festival, which pairs modern music with river activities and outdoor camping, also will feature a handful of area bands, including A Giant Dog, White Denim, the Wild Now and Blackillac, the new collaboration between Austin hip-hop luminaries Phranchyze and Zeale plus blues great Gary Clark Jr.
