The new Fortify Music Festival will converge on Fort DuPont and Delaware City on 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 and the great outdoors.
The festival will showcase eight artists, merging the music from some of the biggest names in the business 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 No. 1 Led Zeppelin tribute show, will headline the festival. Joey DiTullio, an emerging all-original, riff-oriented rock band out of Philadelphia, will also perform.
Other acts include Your Peach, an Allman Brothers and Grateful Dead mashup; Montana Wildaxe, a psychedelic rock and jam band and with 30 years of history playing to Delaware audiences; Spokey Speaky, a tribute to Bob Marley; and Nappy Riddem, Washington, D.C., roots reggae. To kick off the show, two Philadelphia based bands, June Divided and Soraia, will dedicate the first half of their performance paying tribute to The Police, Joan Jett and David Bowie, before their original material.
In addition, festival-goers will also enjoy food trucks and a beer garden.
