Jamaican dancehall legend Sean Paul and rock ’n’ rollers Stone Temple Pilots to perform at June 3-4 event
A North Texas legend since 1993, Taste Addison continues to rock out with delicious food and high-energy concerts. The region’s original food and music festival was voted Best in DFW in 2021, and continues to deliver top-notch Addison eateries, national music artists, food and beverage sampling experiences and activities for the whole family. When the festival returns June 3-4, 2022, it will again present an array of musical artists sure to please everyone. Tickets for the festival go on sale at 10 a.m. March 30.
Starting the party on the CBS 11 Main Stage on Friday night is the legendary Jamaican dancehall rapper and singer Sean Paul, best known for his chart-topping Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 singles, “Get Busy,” “Temperature,” “Baby Boy” (with Beyoncé) and “Cheap Thrills” (with Sia). Paul won the Grammy for Best Reggae Album in 2003 for Dutty Rock and has been nominated for another eight Grammys, most recently last year for his reggae album Live N Livin.
The following night, Stone Temple Pilots take over the stage. Coming to prominence with their 1992 debut album, Core, the alternative rock band was among the most successful groups of the decade, spawning singles including “Plush,” “Creep” and “Interstate Love Song.” The band won a Grammy for Best Hard Rock Performance in 1993 for “Plush.” Also performing on Saturday are Living Colour, best known for 1988’s “Cult of Personality,” and Candlebox, whose “Far Behind” spent nearly a year on the Billboard charts in 1993.
A second music stage, the Legends Stage, will feature popular tribute bands and singer-songwriters of various genres both Friday and Saturday, including Havana NRG, Infinite Journey, Def Leggend, the Emerald City Band All Stars, and many more.
“This year’s lineup, highlighted by four great, energetic national artists, will ensure that Taste Addison brings the party vibe that it’s always been known for,” said Jasmine Lee, Addison’s Director of Special Events. “Just as Taste Addison has a bite for every palate, we have bands who will please every music lover.”
All this music comes with a heaping side of food and drink. More than two dozen of Addison’s finest restaurants and food trucks are participating. Each will serve unique, delicious and affordable menu items, with all entrees $10 or less and each offering a Taste Bite that gives you the flavor of the restaurant for $3 or less.
There will also be complimentary wine, beer and spirits sampling from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday and 2 to 7 p.m. Saturday. And fun fact: As all the restaurants at Taste Addison are from Addison, all the alcohol being sampled at Taste Addison is from Texas.
A free family fun lawn with craft activities, a petting zoo, carnival games and tattoos will ensure Taste Addison is fun for all ages. There will even be pony rides (for a fee).
A new, limited VIP ticket package will raise the level of guests’ experience – literally. Guests with VIP tickets will have access to an elevated concert viewing deck in front of the CBS 11 Main Stage. The VIP ticket will also grant guests access to the Orangetheory VIP Lounge, which is air conditioned, has private restrooms and will offer assorted tastings of food and drink from a selection of Addison restaurants and breweries. A Taste VIP+ package adds reserved VIP parking with a special entrance.
