The Austin Festival Scene

Austin is famously touted as the Live Music Capital of the World, but the Austin music festival scene is just the tip of a festival iceberg that can go toe-to-toe with any city in the world. It is a big (and rapidly growing) city that somehow still manages to feel small when you want it to, and its festivals follow suit. Most will know the mega festivals like SXSW, Austin City Limits and the Texas Book Festival, but nearly every week is packed to the brim with smaller events of all kinds. The diverse community, latent nostalgia and laid-back culture of weird converge in a festival calendar that will always give you something new to discover.

Top Austin Festivals

Austin City Limits
Inspired by the long-running live music program on PBS, this behemoth features two weekends’ worth of music across eight stages in Zilker Metropolitan Park. It’s the city’s largest annual event, bringing in approximately 75,000 people each day.

South By Southwest
Speaking of behemoths, SXSW combines hundreds of music acts, feature films, technology showcases and speakers from all corners of the world every March. This is where new ideas and entertainment collide.

Texas Book Festival
One of the most prestigious book festivals in the United States, the Texas Book Festival is a top destination for literary lovers. Over 300 authors from around the globe and tens of thousands of people come to Austin to bury their nose in a good book, attend panel discussions and listen to live music.

Pecan Street Festival
Downtown Austin’s Sixth Street Historic District comes alive twice a year during one of the finest juried art fairs in the country. Hundreds of exceptionally talented local and national artists come to share their wondrous creations, including paintings, sculptures, clothing and more.
