Hundreds of bands, thousands of fans and free and open to the public, RedGorilla Music Fest is the premier music festival for up-and-coming independent artists.

"Everyone’s a VIP at RedGorilla," says RedGorilla co-founder Brian Waymire. "When you step in to a RedGorilla show we want it to be a discovery point for new artists that otherwise might not have an opportunity to showcase."

Submissions are now open for RedGorilla Music Festival! Held annually in the heart of downtown Austin during the music industry’s most significant week of the year, RedGorilla Music Fest is the premier music festival for up-and-coming independent artists and has showcased some of music’s hottest rising acts, including Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Kendrick Lamar, Andrew W.K., Cage the Elephant, Talib Kwelli, Colt Ford, Nappy Roots, Robert Fortune Band, Space Capone, The Delta Saints, Andy Davis and many more!

Launched in 2001 with only four bands as the DreamScapers Showcase, the event quickly grew and was eventually branded in 2007 as the RedGorilla Music Fest. Each year since then, the festival has hosted 300-500 bands, DJs and solo artists of all genres on up to 11 different stages located right on 6th street, and continues to remain free and open to the public! As a result, RedGorilla has received international media attention and garnered a reputation as one of the top festivals for the discovery of new music.

This year, the event will take place from Tuesday, March 11 through Saturday, March 15, 2014 in downtown Austin, TX and the application process is easier than ever. Visit the RedGorilla website (, Facebook page (, ReverbNation, and or send the application via snail mail. Just $25 to apply, but the opportunity is priceless!
