Austin lives up to its name as the live music capital of the world yet again, with the Austin Reggae Festival right around the corner. This year, the festival celebrates 25 years of bringing reggae and anything in between dub and dance hall to Austin. The there-day festival takes over Auditorium Shores Friday, April 19 through Sunday, April 21.
In addition to exposing people from all over to local and national reggae acts, the festival embraces the belief that music can and should improve the lives of people who are in need. That's why the festival continues to fight hunger in Central Texas by benefitting the Central Texas Food Bank. This is one of the Food Bank’s largest fundraisers and in the last decade it has helped raise more than $1 million to help feed families facing hunger in Central Texas.
This year’s lineup includes Don Carlos, Jah9, The Late Ones, Cocoa Tea, Hempress Sativa and many more. Stay tuned for more artist announcements!
Tickets for the festival are now on sale. For more information on ticket prices visit the festival’s website.
Festival goers are encouraged to use CapMetro, rideshare or ride their bikes. To make it easier to get to the festival, a free shuttle bus will run from the TX DOT Riverside Campus at 150 East Riverside Drive to Vic Mathias Shores on Saturday, April 20, only.
Come out to celebrate the reggae spirit while fighting hunger in your community!
