High Tide Music & Arts Festival debuts Saturday

CHARLESTON, S.C. (Lowcountry Weekend) - The inaugural High Tide Music & Arts Festival will kick off Saturday at Charleston’s Riverfront Park after the pandemic forced organizers to postpone it twice.

The adults-only event is a boutique music and lifestyle experience curated around Charleston’s high-end lifestyle with the beauty of the Lowcountry as its backdrop, its organizers say.

The one-day festival will feature two stages with over 25 DJs, including international headliners Sam Feldt, Dombresky, Autograf, KREAM, Frank Walker, and Sam Blacky. High Tide will showcase some of the region’s best underground and emerging acts from the Carolinas.

“After having to postpone twice due to the pandemic, we are more than excited to bring this event to life and have the opportunity to create an experience that the region hasn’t seen before,” High Tide Co-Founders Edward Holt and Nick Randise said in a joint statement. “It’s amazing to see people from all over the country signing up for access to presale tickets and making High Tide a part of their trip to Charleston.”

VIP guests will have front-row access to the main stage, and perks that include private bars and luxe restrooms.

Super VIP guests will enjoy an exclusive, shaded, raised lounge area featuring private table service, a locally-curated, top-shelf beverage garden.

High Tide will also host a full itinerary of events throughout the weekend, so attendees can experience the best Charleston has to offer, day and night, land and sea, organizers say.

Tickets are available at the event’s website.
