Upcoming Music Festival in Huntsville, TX
It’s Bigger than Texas!
Spring is in the air in Texas and the line-up for this year’s Huntsville Music Festival looks hotter than ever before!
This free event takes place in Rather Park on April the 21st and the 28th from 5 pm to 10 pm. Reviews from last year’s festival were overwhelmingly positive and the event organizers are going all out to make 2016’s event even bigger and better.
The Huntsville Music Festival is an annual event hosted by the City of Huntsville Main Street Program. It features up and coming local artists from Walker County and surrounding areas. This year’s acts include Huntsville’s John Slaughter, Houston musician Kenna Danielle, Austin’s Sam Riggs, and many more talented acoustic artists.
The festival runs on two consecutive Thursdays (the last two in April) so you can choose a night to suit you. The first night finishes with JB and the Moonshine Band in what promises to be a spectacular big band jam and the second night’s grand finale is a song swap between double headliners Zane Williams and Adam Hood.
It’s a wonderful opportunity to showcase all the wonderful talent that Walker County has to offer and for families and friends to enjoy a relaxed evening out. And, the best part is that it’s a completely free community event. The sponsors; including Huntsville’s Downtown Business Alliance, Shenanigans and Confetti’s Beach Club, KSAM 101.7 and Texas Music Pickers are passionate about local talent and want the community to be able to enjoy the very best country music that Walker County and the surrounding areas have to offer.
Rather park, on the corner of 13th and University Avenue, is a beautiful setting for the festival. Relax on the grassy field among vibrant spring blossoms as the talented and creative artists entertain you as only Texas can!
Beginning at 5 pm, festival goers can enjoy the last of the evening’s sunshine before settling down to take in the music under a vast expanse of stars. The festival has an authentic, grass-roots atmosphere and a friendly vibe.
The entertainment doesn’t stop at just music, either!
There is a wide range of food trucks and beverage outlets so festival goers can enjoy a bite to eat and an ice cold brew or two as they listen to the artists. Prize drawings and raffles also add to the vibrant atmosphere.
All you’ll need is a lawn chair or picnic blanket, good friends and the right attitude for a good time.
It’s easy to get to Huntsville to enjoy the festival: you can be there in just under 3 hours from Austin or less than an hour and a half from Houston. Why not get some friends together and plan a long weekend road trip full of beautiful scenery, warm spring weather and fabulous music under a starry sky?
