Texas Indie Fest’s actual beginning was in 2011 as part of the Abolitionist Tour to Austin, TX from various locations throughout the United States. In 2012 it was known as the Ascension Tour. In 2013 the event was re-branded by Indie on Air Records and Match 1 Entertainment as Texas Indie Fest.
The event, presented every March in Austin during music week, has organically grown into a 4 day 44 band multi genre showcase. In 2019, all four days will be broadcast live by Fish Creek Radio with other radio support provided by the syndicated radio show New Music Food Truck. Production is handled by Kingdom Sound.
Now entering its 9th consecutive year, Texas Indie Fest moves to a new venue (Texas Mist) and will showcase 20 Reverbnation artists and 24 emerging artists from across the US and internationally as selected by Indie on Air Records.
