AD: AMP Fest Returns for an all-new BACKSTAGE experience!


Raising funds for Arts Education programs at Walton Arts Center, AMP Fest returns for the ultimate “thirsty Thursday” on Thursday, October 3 from 6-10 p.m. – taking the party completely backstage for a night of craft beer sampling, games and tech demos, live music, food and more!

Each year, AMP Fest highlights some of the best breweries and beer distributors from around the country, giving Northwest Arkansas beer lovers the chance to sample hundreds of styles and flavors. This year, the list of participating breweries includes Bike Rack Brewing Co., Black Apple Crossing, Boston Mountain Brewing, Core Brewing Co., Flyaway Brewing, Founders Brewing, Great Raft Brewing, Lagunitas Brewing Company, Lazy Magnolia Brewery, Lost Forty Brewing, Natural State Beer, New Holland Brewing, Ozark Beer, Revolver Brewing, Samuel Adams, Shiner, Yuengling and more!

In addition to beer sampling, AMP Fest also has live music by fan-favorite local artists Goose – returning for the third year to AMP Fest – and Jukeboxx, an eight-piece, high-energy party band who perform an exciting mix of funk, R&B and top 40 songs.

If you’ve been to AMP Fest before, you know a huge component of the event is technology. Samsung and VMLY&R will be on site with one-on-one, interactive, cutting edge tech demos, including a foldable smart phone! Test your skills and go head-to-head with outdoor video games at the Monster and PlayStation booths. Plus, the Magic Mirror photo booth returns alongside a brand new Raspberry Pi Tetris Tournament. If you’re looking for fun, we’ve got it!

Coming to AMP Fest straight from work? Don’t worry about eating ahead of time – we’ll have local food trucks, Purple Banana and Hickory Hollow Smokehouse serving up delicious tacos and BBQ for purchase to the general public. For VIP ticket buyers, BITE NWA will be bringing four local restaurants for food sampling in the on-stage VIP Lounge. At AMP Fest, you’re guaranteed to get your fill!
