One of the Spring’s most highly anticipated festivals, Euphoria, has announced the artists-by-day lineup for the annual Austin event this April 7-10, 2016. Kicking off the things a day early this year, campers are invited to enter the grounds beginning at Noon on Thursday, April 7th. With the added day comes the Thursday night New Moon Pre-Party in celebration of the first phase of the Euphoria family’s return back to Carson Creek Ranch. The New Moon Pre-Party will be exclusive to all four-day campers and will feature performances by Bass Physics, who recently released the aptly named track “Euphoria”; Austin livetronica act, Blunt Force; and a special set by The Polish Ambassador. The New Moon celebration will include a communal bonfire, fire dancers, drum circles and more.
With Euphoria's first full day of music and festivities beginning on Friday, April 8th, festival goers will be hard pressed to tag which day is biggest and best; however, for fans looking to come out for just the day, single day passes are now available for $54, plus fees.

In conjunction with the 5th anniversary of the festival, Euphoria has broadened its efforts to give back and build a community that goes beyond the music including a partnership with Keep Austin Beautiful. Formed to provide resources and education to engage citizens in building more beautiful communities, the two-year alliance will kick off in April and will include the adoption of Carson Creek that runs along the Ranch, five river cleanups to be held throughout the year, and additional participation and support for Keep Austin Beautiful events. The first of these events will be held April 2nd, when Euphoria will call upon its local family to join in a pre-festival river cleanup at Carson Creek Ranch. Additionally, Euphoria will be active in the organization's Clean Sweep event on the morning of April 9th, inviting campers to take part in leaving Austin in better shape than when they first arrived. Held every April, Clean Sweep is a city-wide service day spanning 130+ sites in 31 zip codes throughout Austin, resulting in over 29 tons of trash removed by more than 4,000 volunteers who contribute 8,700 combined service hours. More information, from how to get involved to river cleanup details, will be announced in the coming weeks.
“The partnership with Keep Austin Beautiful is an incredible opportunity to show how involved the Euphoria Family can be," says festival producer Mitch Morales. “This amazing organization will allow Euphoria to give back throughout the year."
