HONK!TX Festival of Community Street Bands is a FREE music festival that builds community in public spaces through the power of music. HONK!TX is excited to return to Austin for our fifth fantastic year and we will be taking marching band madness to the streets from March 27th-29th! For more information on this year's events visit honktx.org.
This year, scores of musician will descend once more on the city of Austin to bring you the big, bold and brassy musical mayhem HONK!TX is famous for. Three days of music, free and open to the public, from Friday through Sunday. HONK!TX is a nonprofit, community-driven festival that brings brass bands from around the country to perform absolutely free in the public spaces of Austin, TX.
Performing an array of genres ranging from European Klezmer and Balkan, to New Orleans second-line brass music, spectacular bands will come from far and wide this year to transform everyday locations around Austin into organic stages, where the line between crowd and performers dissolves and music, mirth and mayhem are born. Harking back to a time when festivities and entertainment were not something created for the enjoyment of a passive audience, but rather an experience created through the participation of each and every person involved, HONK!TX is more than just a music festival; it is a celebration of community, collaboration, individuality, and creative expression. Come HONK! with us!!!
