Kashmir, a Led Zeppelin tribute band, will headline the festival at Ft. Dupont.
Fortify Music Fest is converging on Fort Dupont and Delaware City Saturday, Sept. 29.
Hosted by Fort Dupont Redevelopment & Preservation Corporation, Fortify Fest is a day-long music festival bringing local bands and national-touring tribute acts together on two stages for a day of outdoor music. The event will take place on the grounds of Fort Dupont, a historical and mixed-use destination community designed around the water.
The festival will showcase eight artists, merging the music from national acts with local and regional talent. The live music has been curated by Delaware’s own Gable Music Ventures, creators of the award-winning Ladybug Festival.
Kashmir, the nation’s top Led Zeppelin tribute show, will headline the festival.
Joey DiTullio, an emerging all original, riff-oriented rock band out of Philadelphia, will be blasting their fresh new sound in a performance that is both unpredictable and unforgettable.
The rest of the performers include:
Steal Your Peach – Allman Brothers and Grateful Dead mashup;
Montana Wildaxe – psychedelic rock / jam band with 30 years of experience playing for Delaware audiences;
Spokey Speaky – tribute to Bob Marley;
Nappy Riddem – Washington, D.C. roots reggae;
June Divided and Soraia – tribute to David Bowie, The Police and Joan Jett along with original material.
In addition to the musical experience, festival-goers will enjoy a variety of culinary offerings from multiple food trucks as well as local craft beers from the beer garden including a special production of the festival’s own Fortify IPA.
Boasting an 18-acre parade ground as the setting for the event, guests will enjoy on-site parking, with just a short walk to the stages. Once a military installation, Fort Dupont is now being developed with plans for a marina, hotel, restaurants, new homes, retail stores, conference center and office space, all on the waterfront.
