The Lineup For FUSE Fest 2012

Hope you’ll be in town September 6th-8th. It’s going to be a music filled weekend in Fresno. That’s the weekend for the Fresno Urban Sound Experience Festival. It’s the 5th year for FUSE Fest and while it may be a bit bigger, the ideals are the same as year one: Showcase Fresno’s diverse and talented music scene while featuring relevant venues in Downtown Fresno.

So. The big stuff. The reason there is a festival at all. Let’s take a look at the lineup for Fresno Urban Sound Experience #5! Because FUSE Fest has no headliners (it’s how we roll), this is in no particular order:

Lineup is subject to change (such is life). But it’s looking damn special so far and we cant wait to see it all, with you, in Downtown Fresno, Friday and Saturday September 7th and 8th.

Thursday (September 6th): The #Hashtag
This is a free preview night, during Arthop, that will have short sets from artists featured during the main part of the festival and some that aren’t. You will be able to purchase festival passes and FUSE merch.

Friday (September 7th): Iron Bird Lofts, Fulton 55, Fulton 55 “Coffeehouse Stage” (upstairs) and The Lampost.

Saturday (September 8th): CMAC (old Fresno Met building) “Studio Stage”, CMAC “Outdoor Stage”, Fresno Brewing Company, Frank’s Place, Fishbowl Stage (under the Warnors Theatre marquee) and Tokyo Garden.

Make sure to start inviting all your friend’s faces. Follow FUSE Fest on Twitter and check the website for the latest news.

      You know that we love Azazel, Ric, we’ve been proud to have you guys play the past couple years!! Kady! Danger, Your Hero Is A Villain and Dislodic will be doing a fine job of representing the metal community this year. That doesn’t mean we couldn’t use more or that we don’t want more (because we freaking do!), we just have to cut it off somewhere. These are the toughest decisions of putting together this festival every year: What friends of FUSE Fest do we have to leave off the team for a year. We’d be thrilled to have Azazel back ASAP, Mr. May is Fresno’s Shred King!

    Hey, we are the Genetics, we are Punk/Ska band from Fresno, and we were wondering if you had a spot for us on the bill.
    Thank you for your time.

    Nooooooo!!! What happened to Rademacher???

    • FUSE Fest says:

      They were asked but were unable to play. BUT, in case you didn’t notice, College Kids are playing which is Malcolm Sosa’s (Rademacher) other band.

    Azazel fans: provided audio support for last year’s FUSE Festival and we had the honour of running sound for Azazel. They were a fine, professional outfit and they sounded great. You can find pictures and listen to a recording of their entire set at this link:
