The annual tattoo & music festival returns for it's sixth year in 2015 on July 17-19th in El Paso, Texas at the County Coliseum and promises to be so jam packed with music and activity for all, that you'll barely have time to check your Snapchat. When George Galindo, the festival organizer and tattoo entrepreneur, announced this year's incredible lineup and available on-site activities early on in the year, there was no doubt that this year's festival would be one of the most anticipated festivals of 2015 complete with carnival rides, BMX stunt shows and so much more.
The music lineup consists of an excellent mix of genres that includes artists such as Ice Cube, Limp Bizkit, The Offspring, Yelawolf, Buckcherry, Hollywood Undead and even DJ Starscream which is Sid Wilson or #0 from Slipknot to name just a few. The schedule is loaded with live music from the minute the gates open on Friday, July 17th at 12pm clear up until The Offspring closes out the festival on Sunday, July 19th. The lineup definitely has something for everyone especially considering it's an all ages show.
The music isn't the only thing that will appeal to your senses, especially considering vendors such as the Clasico Kitchen Bar will be serving their famous Micheladas in the Outdoor Bar at the festival. Twin Peaks will also be on site and the Twin Peaks' ladies will be serving food and beverages from 12pm-12am daily. American Born Moonshine will also be available at the Outdoor Bar on site.
With over 300 confirmed well-known tattoo artists at the festival, you will have plenty of visual stimulation and inspiration to get that first, second, tenth or thousandth tattoo at this year's Texas Showdown Festival. Check out the hundreds of artists that will be on site here.
There will also be daily BMX stunt shows at 3pm and 5pm at the BMX/Motorcross course on site.
