HONK!TX is an annual, free, springtime, nonprofit, street music fest in Austin, and it runs for three days (March 31 – April 2, 2023).
On the second day this year, April 1, there will be five stages in the Mueller neighborhood, with music throughout the day at each one.
HONK!TX is a nonprofit, community-driven festival that brings street and brass bands from around the country to perform for free in the public spaces of Austin.
Mobile and unamplified, HONK! bands transform everyday locations into organic stages, dissolving the line between crowd and performers and inviting everyone to celebrate the joys of music and community.
HONK! is a celebration of community, collaboration, and creative expression.
A range of genres will be represented: New Orleans second-line brass, European Klezmer and Balkan, Brazilian, West African, and more.
HONK!TX annually showcases a different band lineup, featuring local favorites, various bands from around the country, and the occasional international band.
