“Imagine yourself transported to a distant realm, where enchanted echoes from days of yore meet breathtaking visions from a world yet unseen! Within these gates, fanciful creatures roam the kingdoms while mesmerizing sounds give forth from futuristic castles. In this festive celebration of epic proportions, imagine rules the land. Welcome to Middlelands- an Adventure for the Ages!”
In case you missed the original announcement, Insomniac Events, aka the creators behind EDC, Electric Forest, Nocturnal Wonderland, and more, are throwing a medieval themed festival this summer. Fully equipped with over 150 artists across five themed stages, the Festival Fair Grounds in Todd Mission, TX, is the place to be May 5-7 this festival season.
There’s been nothing like this festival before, as it features whimsical characters, sword fights, dinner at the king’s table, castles surrounding the grounds, and one of the best lineups of the summer with headliners such as Bassnectar, Big Gigantic, Gramatik, Griz, Marshmello, and more.
A cool feature this festival has in store is the VIP package. With the purchase of a 3-day VIP ticket, you will be treated like the king or queen you are to a dedicated festival entrance at the main castle gates, Royal Court Costume Shop costumes, complimentary carriage rides across the grounds, King’s Court parking, private luxury bathrooms, body art, face paint, henna, and more. If you want to, you can learn to sword fight, embark in a treasure hunt, and sit down in a private banquet hall for a gourmet dinner…are you sold yet?
GA and VIP tickets are for sale on the festival’s website, which you can find here. There are tons of camping options to choose from, displayed on the site for easy navigation. Layaway options are available as well. You can find more information, travel information, and tons of photos on the website. Check it out! It’s going to be a pretty stellar weekend.
