Finding Euphoria is almost here! We’re bringing you the 411 so you know what to expect, where to be, and how to have the best Euphoria experience this weekend.
Finding Euphoria is taking place at three (walkable!) venues in Downtown Austin’s Red River Cultural District. Red River is the epicenter of live music in Austin, filled with venues, bars, artists and energy.
We are taking over Empire Control Room and Garage, Mohawk, and Barracuda for the festival on May 12, and an additional night at Empire on Friday for the Pre-Party. To make it a three day party, meet us at Vulcan Gas Company nearby on 6th street for Phutureprimitive Thursday.
Empire Control Room and Garage (May 11 and 12)
606 E 7th St, Austin, TX 78701
Mohawk (May 12)
912 Red River St, Austin, TX 78701
Barracuda (May 12)
611 E 7th St, Austin, TX 78701
The best part - You can bounce between these venues on foot. It’s a 5 minutes walk between Empire and Mohawk, a 1 minute walk (across the street!) from between Empire and Barracuda, and a 5 minute walk between Mohawk and Barracuda.
Red River Street is well-lit and active, but it’s always best to walk with friends late at night!
We recommend taking a rideshare or public transit to your first venue stop. Austin offers Uber, Lyft and RideAustin. You can also use www.capmetro.org to plan a bus route from any location.
There are multiple parking options if you choose to drive. Street parking is $1.25 per hour until midnight on Friday and Saturday. There is a public parking lot at 707 East 7th Street, a 1 minute walk from Empire and Barracuda, at the rate of $6.00 per 2 hours. (Parking would have been $20 per day at the Ranch, so you’re saving some $$ here!)
Check out the schedule! Doors for all venues are at 5:00 p.m.
Hop around between the three venues, or hang out at your favorite! We are capping passes below venue capacity. This should keep lines manageable and make it as easy as possible for you to leave and re-enter venues. Plan accordingly if there is a particular artist you really want to see.
