Just this past April, the Party Guru Press team had the opportunity to hit up Ubbi Dubbi Festival at the Panther Island Pavillion, in good ole’ Fort Worth, Texas. The festival was on the smaller scale, but great things come in small packages! The festival lived up to it’s unusual dubbing by supporting their “out of this world” origin story. The tale starts with two seemingly virtual creatures named Ubbi and Dubbi, who were set to travel the vast universe and find the perfect place to party. The dynamic duo ended up stumbling upon a portal, and once they reached the other side they discovered Panther Island! The partners in crime found small, strange creatures, spectacular stages, and mind melding music unlike anything they have ever heard before. Ubbi and Dubbi knew they had reached their final party destination. With a line up including artists like Zeds Dead, Boombox Cartel, and Illenium, Ubbi Dubbi was sure to bring us all a good time.

The Ubbi Dubbi Festival grounds was set up across a long stretch of land right on the water, and nestled right under the Dallas, Texas city skyline. Once the Party Guru Press team received our wristbands, we walked across a small bridge to be greeted by a large LED Ubbi Dubbi sign, with Ubbi and Dubbi on either side. As we explored the festival grounds, we discovered LED trees and a disco ball pyrotechnic structure, surrounded by geodomes perfectly paired with hammocks inside. The festival added some flare into their production with live performances from stilt walking Ubbis and Dubbis all through the grounds. You could smell the food in the air, you could hear the music traveling across the festivals, and you could see the happiness on everyone’s faces.

The stage production at Ubbi Dubbi Festival was nothing short of exemplary. The DeadBeats main stage, otherwise called Dubbi’s stage, was set up right in front of raised train tracks. The press team even had the pleasure of watching a train slowly make it’s way behind the stage, as Peekaboo was rocking the stage against the back drop of a beautiful Texan sunset. The stage itself had three large LED screens, multiple light rigs, stellar lasers, and pyrotechnics. The house stage, under the alias “The Zoom Room,” was set under a circus tent-like structure. The stage was seamlessly paired with the Team-EZ crew providing entertainment. Last, but definitely not least, the third stage, named Ubbi’s stage, was the most impressive. The Ubbi stage featured 20 long, thin LED panels crowning the stage. A single large, visual LED screen was right in the middle, pyrotechnics, and even firework rigs! Illenuim dominated the stage with an absolutely flawless headlining set, accented with perfectly timed fireworks. Over all the production was an absolute 10 out of 10 in our book.

The best part of the weekend was the music! Day one featured big time names like Galantis, Nghtmre, Joyryde, Space Jesus, Keys N Krates, and so many more. Unfortunately, during the day one headliner’s sets, an unexpected lightning storm hit Panther Island and the festival was forced to evacuate. So Zeds Dead’s, Galantis’, and Claptone’s sets were cut by about half an hour. Luckily, on day two Ubbi Dubbi Festival made one hell of a come back! Day two featured artists like Illenium, Tchami, Borgore, Ganja White Night, Slander, Decadon, and so many more! The Party Guru Press team is so grateful to have had the opportunity to share such an amazing experience with the Ubbi Dubbi crowd.
