LIVE MUSIC DAY AND NIGHT IN HISTORIC DOWNTOWN BASTROP
Featuring over 30 bands and 40 performances, the Bastrop Music Festival is set to take center stage May 17 - 20, 2018 in the heart of Historic Downtown Bastrop. This inaugural music festival features performances by bands of numerous genres in venues along the lower Colorado River, with a mixture of wristband-only nighttime performance as well as free daytime events including shows for children. Regular and VIP tickets are on sale now, HERE!
Bastrop Music Festival is produced by the staff at Texas Music Magazine. "Bastrop is a terrific place to host an event like this. The local community is supportive of live music and it's a destination that will attract out of towners," says Stewart Ramser, producer of Bastrop Music Festival and publisher of Texas Music Magazine. "We're working closely with city, business and community leaders to make Bastrop the capital of Texas music for four days in May."
The festival will showcase music in a variety of intimate venues, such as:
- Neighbor's Kitchen and Yard
- The 602 on Main
- The Kleinart Building at Viejo's Tacos y Tequila
- The Old Town Restaurant & Bar
- The Grace Miller "Gracie's"
- The Sugar Shack
- The 1832 Bastrop Farmer's Market
- Copper Shot Distillery

- Bastrop Museum and Visitor Center
Free daytime concerts including show's for kids will take place during this four-day festival. Check out the lineup, HERE!
