    About

    Hot Summer Nights is an FREE district-wide music festival returning to downtown Austin July 18 - July 20, hosted by the Red River Cultural District.

    Founded in 2017, the fest provides revenue to local music venues and restaurants in the traditionally slower summer months. And although every performance is free for the audience, it's a paid gig for the local artist on stage!

    Here's the rundown:

    WHERE? In the Red River Cultural District located in the heart of Downtown Austin! You'll get free entry into 12+ music venues downtown like Stubbs, Mohawk, Cheer Up Charlies, Empire, and many more.

    WHO'S PLAYING? 140+ local Austin musicians!

    FOOD? Plenty. Red River is crawling with amazing spots to pop in and grab a drink or a bite, many of which are providing special Hot Summer Nights discounts & deals exclusive to the festival weekend.

    Plus, RSVP and make a small donation to your hosts (Red River Cultural District) via the link attached for the chance to win tickets to local concerts & 2 VIP passes to Hot Summer Nights.
