The city of Richardson announced Feb. 17 the initial lineup for the 2023 Wildflower Arts & Music Festival.

Headlining acts are X Ambassadors, Joan Jett and The Blackhearts, and Jimmie Vaughan and The Tilt-A-Whirl Band.

The festival is scheduled for May 19-21 at Galatyn Park Urban Center, which is located just north of Galatyn Parkway on the east side of US 75. The three-day festival, which is organized by the city, features live concerts from local, regional and national acts. Other festival highlights include street performers, a battle of the bands, a songwriting competition, a marketplace filled with local and regional goods, kids activities, and more.

Tickets for the festival can be purchased online. Pricing for 2023 festival tickets is $35 for a single day and $75 for a three-day pass. City officials said there will be a “wild sale” Feb. 17-24 with $10 off a single-day admission ticket and $15 off the three-day weekend pass. A VIP package for $400 is available and will include access to complimentary food, beverages, exclusive seating and premier parking. Children age 12 and under will receive free admission all weekend.

City residents may also purchase discounted tickets at soon-to-be-announced participating city of Richardson locations beginning April 3.

Complimentary parking will be available for the festival within the nearby surrounding area. Residents are encouraged to take advantage of the Dallas Area Rapid Transit Red Line light rail, which stops at the Galatyn Park Station, located immediately adjacent to the west side of the festival grounds, according to city officials.
