Euphoria Music and Camping Festival
Since its debut 2012, Euphoria Music Festival has become a well-known fun zone in Texas and throughout the Southwest. Each year the festival builds upon the last, making improvements to every aspect of the experience. At the same time, Euphoria Music Festival successfully maintains a welcoming, grassroots feel.
On April 10-12, the Euphoria experience took place at Carson Creek Ranch–just minutes from downtown Austin, Texas. The spacious grounds run along the tree lined Colorado River and welcomed over 10,000 people with plenty of room to spare.

The 55-acre Carson Creek Ranch was established as a Spanish land grant in 1851 and is one of the oldest existing ranches in Texas. The scene practically beckoned festival goers to relax among the trees along the serene waters.

Hammocks and hammock tents swayed in the distance as a picturesque camp bustled with mingling people and acoustic jams. The campgrounds were bejeweled with substantial amounts Texas bluebonnets and other wildflowers.
