To help fans plan their experience, the artists-by-day schedule is as follows:

SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 14

The local artist’s schedule, including Battle of the Bands winner The Basements, will be announced in the coming week.
Since 2016, DUSK has worked feverishly to create an unforgettable experience combining various music genres, the best food and beverage Arizona offers, and an interactive art experience on the grandest scale for its fans. While plans for this year’s event are still underway, DUSK is excited to be partnering with Tucson Foodie to curate an incredible lineup of restaurants, food trucks, and chefs. Current confirmed participants include Gastronomic Union of Tucson (GUT), Dante’s Fire, Culinary Dropout, and Zinburger to local favorites like Empire Pizza, Rollies Mexican Patio, and Jake’s Donuts & Treat Trolley. In addition, Tucson ARTS, will include live art, larger-than-life sculptures, digital art, video projection, and lighting displays throughout downtown Tucson and the Jácome Plaza festival grounds. Additional activations include Tucson PLAYS featuring a variety of backyard games and classic arcade games from partner, Cobra Arcade Tucson, and the Tucson SHOPS market for all your shipping needs. Finally, the GREENROOM returns, providing a professional, positive, fun, and interactive space for festival attendees to learn about the Arizona medical and adult-use cannabis programs.
Additionally, DUSK Charities 501(c)(3) will be renewing its efforts to develop educational training and career programming to introduce high school and college-aged students to the wide variety of careers and vocations in the music festival industry. Proceeds from this year’s event will go to the Children’s Museum Tucson, the Armory Park Neighborhood Association, The Rialto Theatre, and several other local foundations and organizations yet to be named.
