The Red White & Blue Ball

After SXSW this year I sat down with a few friends to talk about doing a summer event together. The goal was simply to do something fun, and bring in a group of artists and businesses from the Austin community that we wanted to showcase. The result is The Red White & Blue Ball, a miniature camping and music festival taking place on Saturday, June 30th.

We are producing the event at a cool spot just outside Austin called The Ball Farm, which will be decked out with multiple stages, plenty of room to roam around, and a nice campground where we can all get together and hang out after the show. If you know where the F1 track is, the farm is just a few minutes past that location.

We are really excited about the bands that have agreed to come out and provide the entertainment. On the main stage we will have the five-piece folk-rock band Wheeler Brothers, one of Austin's most exciting new bands. These guys are a lot of fun and recently took home the award for Best New Band at the Austin Music Awards. Complementing the Wheeler Brothers will be Shakey Graves, Those Nights, Hello Wheels and some other special guests. After the main attractions we will convene in the campground and have a late night dance party.

We want you to come out with a few friends and family and have a good time with us. It's BYOB, and you can bring a picnic, but we will also have some food vendors on-site for you to choose from. To help you cool down we will have a gigantic water slide and other water-related activities. Being that it's the weekend before July 4th, we'll also light up the sky with some fireworks.

An important thing to highlight is that a portion of the proceeds from The Red, White and Blue Ball will go to the Groundwork Music Project, a great local non-profit organization whose mission is to provide free and low cost music lessons to children with limited means. Groundwork is currently raising funds for their summer programs. Find out more at
