Austin Texas


Austin's next great music festival.

General info

Let's be honest, with an overcrowded spring event calendar that barely breaks long enough to sneeze at the cedar pollen, a new festival in Austin is about as welcome as a double-decker bus full of out-of-state emigrees scrambling to snap up our "affordable" housing. But based on the turnout and the scene at the inaugural Austin Jazz Festival on Sunday, this might be an event that Austin actually needs. Filling a void left vacant since longtime community organizer Harold McMillan stopped programming the Clarksville Jazz and Arts Festival years ago, the day-long event presented a classy program of vocal and instrumental jazz headlined by internationally acclaimed saxophonist Kirk Whalum.

It was refreshing to see a diverse crowd show up for an event that eschewed hype, focusing instead on sheer musicianship and instrumental prowess. 

After attending year one it's easy to get on board. With the festival's core emphasis placed squarely on music, it's an event that everyone who believes in the term "Live Music Capital" should readily embrace.
