Sol Fest Drops an Insanely Bass-Heavy Lineup for 2023
Guess what…Sol Fest just dropped phase one of its long-awaited lineup for 2023! The second-ever edition of this independently owned music festival will take place from May 5th – 7th at Bama Slam Waterpark and Campground, located in New Brockton, Alabama.
This 1,600-acre venue can host over 90,000 people. It’s complete with luxury camping, a general store, a saloon (its own bar, restaurant, and venue), beach volleyball, zip lines, waterslides, and so much more. And don’t forget the insane production and lighting, live painting, interactive installations, and 3D holographic water shows.
We can’t think of a better way to kick off summer. Keep reading for more details about Sol Fest!

But wait, there’s more. We promise getting to the festival early for the pre-party will be worth it. Flux Pavilion, Tripp St., A Hundred Drums, Marvel Years, Evaluation, PHLIP, and Deathpact kick off the festival.
All that and there are still more artists to be announced…can we get a SHEESH!
Mind. Body. Sol.
According to Sol Fest, anyone that enters the festival grounds will discover a mind-altering wonderland. Interactive activities, live painters, spiritual workshops, and even a 3D holographic water show will keep you totally immersed in your world.
During the day, keep the energy high at the 2-acre spring-fed waterpark. A rope swing, zipline, floating trampoline, waterslides, sandy beach volleyball, and more can all be enjoyed while DJs drop some beats at the body stage.
Attendees can also keep their tummies happy throughout the weekend with food from a wide assortment of vendors. The 2023 vendors haven’t been announced yet. However, last year brought well-known favorites including Grilled Cheese Incident, Asian Sensation, and Festi Bowl.
To conclude the weekend, Sol Sunday presents a time of remembrance during a memorial show. “Sol, meaning sun, originates from our dear friend Quentin ‘Sol’ Rupp, who passed away in a tragic car accident at 26 years old,” says Sol Fest. After this loss, the festival was created as a sanctuary. Anyone attending Sol Fest can submit photos of loved ones for Sol Sunday by clicking here.
