Accompanying the visual artists, the entertainment at ArtsGoggle heavily features local musicians and offers performances from a variety of cultures and styles. In addition, the event partners with arts organizations across Fort Worth to draw attention to their programs. In years past, ArtsGoggle has hosted: The Cliburn for pop-up concerts; showcased Ballet Folklorico de Azteca for a colorful dance performances; presented a raucous concert from the Flying Balalaika Brothers, a Russian Romani rock trio that utilizes classical instruments with a modern sound; and hosted a stellar headliner performance from indie rocker Sarah Jaffe.
When booking, ArtsGoggle shows strong preference to artists with a personal connection to the Near Southside and Fort Worth and prefer to book acts with original music, not cover or tribute performances. ArtsGoggle strives to host a diverse lineup of regional artists across genres. In that effort, we are working to curate entertainment that reaches a broad audience and offers opportunity to lesser know artists as well as regionally acclaimed artists.
ArtsGoggle performances start every hour on the hour on two official ArtsGoggle stages main stages. Entertainers are asked to perform 40-45 minute sets.
