Lineup

WHO IS PERFORMING AT THE FESTIVAL?

You can find the lineup here.

CAN MY BAND PLAY?

2024 is already booked, however if you are interested in playing 2025, please direct all inquiries to Steve Said at doseydoeinc@gmail.com our enter our Throwdown; a competition to win a slot at the festival!

I am concerned my two favorite bands might be playing at the same time?

The goal of any talent buyer is to ensure a festival program full of ‚Äėmust see‚Äô acts. If there are two acts,you love that are playing at the same time, then we have done our job correctly! That said, we do our best to allow mitigated overlap of band playing against each other so you can see a little bit of everything.

The name of the festival is ‚ÄėBig As Texas‚Äô. Why isn't every artist from Texas?

We have created a place setting for the best of Texas as well as beyond Texas. We celebrate this genre of music, as well as its cultural overlaps into other genres. We have fun, we book what we like, and this is going to be an amazing party. Of course, Texas is the best but we just love music.
