The 2019 RedGorilla Music Festival will take place From Monday, March 11th to Saturday, March 16th in venues in the heart of downtown Austin. The event is free to attend and open to the general public. RedGorilla has helped many artists gain large scale followings early in their careers and has showcased some of the best up and coming acts over the years, including Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Kendrick Lamar, Imagine Dragons, The National, Foster the People, Cage the Elephant, Ryan Bingham, and more. The RedGorilla Music Festival launched nearly fifteen years ago as the DreamScapers Artist Showcase and grew each year under that name.
In 2007, the founders re-branded the event as the RedGorilla Music Fest showcasing over 200 artists. Since then the festival has grown to showcase well over 500 artists every year.
Through all of the growth, the festival continues to be a "No Badge Required" event and RedGorilla's mission still remains the same: to promote up and coming artists and new music, in all genres while helping independent artists further their careers. The festival takes place during one of the most important music weeks of the year. The city of Austin, TX hosts the music industry's premier destination, and thousands of fans and industry professionals descend upon Austin to network and check out new talent.
The Festival has been an overwhelming success and continues to uphold its reputation as the youthful, rebel showcase that caters to talented artists from all parts of the world! RedGorilla offers performance slots to bands, solo artists, and DJs so they can take advantage of this excellent opportunity. RedGorilla also prides itself on making these showcases the best experience possible for participating artists, as well as for their fans.
