"In another move to support their home town of Winston-Salem, Texas Pete® has announced it will be the title sponsor of the 2014 Phuzz Phest, an annual festival spanning three days and featuring a genre-spanning lineup of musical acts from cities throughout the United States and abroad. The event takes place April 4 to 6 and takes advantage of the many music venues Winston-Salem has to offer.
“Phuzz Phest will take place in the city’s burgeoning downtown area, bringing tons of entertainment to thousands of music fans across the southeast,” said Philip Pledger, founder and director of Phuzz Phest. “The event has built its reputation on keenly curating the region’s best acts for a weekend that offers attendees a rare opportunity to see critically acclaimed artists alongside under-praised locals in an intimate setting and is really one-of-a-kind.”
Phuzz Phest 2014 will feature more than 50 musical acts as well as a variety of parties and programming to supplement the live entertainment. All-access wristbands can be purchased on phuzzphest.com or in person at Reanimator, a Winston-Salem boutique music and entertainment shop.
Texas Pete® recently announced its sponsorship of another upcoming Winston-Salem event , the Texas Pete® Culinary Arts Festival, that will take place in Sept. 2014. Texas Pete® is also the title sponsor of Winston-Salem’s Twin City RibFest.
With all the recent announcements, Glenn Garner, vice president of marketing for Texas Pete®, was asked about the company’s surge in interest in supporting Winston-Salem.
“Because Texas Pete® is an international brand, we travel a tremendous amount and interact with people from all over the world,” Garner said. “But the Triad is home. Phuzz Phest is one of the coolest events in Winston-Salem and we feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to be part of it.”"
