DreamFest 2024

This year’s festival begins on Friday, April 26th at 7:30 p.m., headlined by DFW-based Motown band “Memphis Soul” at 8:30 p.m. Memphis Soul is a high-energy 8-piece group featuring a solid rhythm section, fiery horns, and male and female vocalists inspired by icons such as Earth, Wind and Fire, Otis Redding, Al Green, Sam Cooke, and Aretha Franklin. Friday’s concert opens at 7:30 p.m. with hip-hop artist Chef Dee, a professionally trained chef, rapper, and singer with a skill for uplifting people through all art forms.

Day 2 of DreamFest is Saturday, April 27th starting at 5:00 p.m. and featuring a variety of music from indie to Latin to funk to country/folk! The four-act concerts include Dallas-based, independent artist Chloe Jobin at 5:00 p.m., “Pugh Funk,” a family-operated band dedicated to faith and funk, at 6:00 p.m., up-and-coming Latina singer-songwriter Marrissa Chibli at 7:00 p.m., and Saturday’s headliner, the original Tex-Mex Honky Tonk band “The Tejas Brothers” at 8:00 p.m.

Be sure to arrive early, not only to secure a spot close to the stage, but also to enjoy all the family-friendly activities available on the lawn. Make it an all-day outing and head to Downtown Arlington before the show to check out any of the bars, breweries, restaurants, and entertainment located within walking distance of the Levitt.
