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. This year marks the fourth year that HONK!TX will invade the streets of Austin, with festivities happening over three days from March 21-23. For scheduling and more information visit honktx.org. We hope to see you there!
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!!!
