More than 10,000 country music fans flocked to Surfers Point in Ventura, California, on October 14th for the Boots & Brews Festival. Western attire, including boots and hats, was the norm in the festive crowd. Country music superstar Tim McGraw headlined a lineup of 4 country music bands drenched in rock overtones. The festival had more of a county fair feel than just an ordinary concert. A large variety of gourmet food trucks greeted festival goers, as well as multiple beverages stands.

The third day of Austin City Limits brought a lineup of heavy hitters to Zilker Park. With a stacked program of artists, some known throughout the decades, some up and coming, and a couple with something to prove, little was left to be desired as the festival was sent off in style.

The Texas sun beat down heavily for Day two of Austin City Limits, but nothing could stop the masses from flooding Zilker Park with high hopes for a stacked Saturday lineup. A diverse and eclectic bill of artists for the day, the list of artists had something for everyone and an array of genres that were far from what you would expect at a typical festival.

In a summer that signified to many that large music festivals have truly come back, the first Friday of this year’s Austin City Limits festival marked the end of a successful summer across the board in live entertainment. The overcast in Austin that day could not put a damper on the crowd’s spirits as thousands upon thousands rushed in early to celebrate the first weekend of the most monumental musical occasion of the year in the Lone Star State.

We love keeping it fresh and pulling off sweet music in gorgeous locations. It only seemed natural to host a little gathering south of the border where we can defrost from the snow season!

This year we pulled off what many have said was the best festival yet. It takes a lot of talented people and entities in both the foreground and background to produce the John Hartford Memorial Festival, and we'd like to publicly acknowledge the folks who used their talents to make the event run as smooth as a steam powered aero-plane. We would like to thank everyone who helped out including; John Hotze for his vision of founding the festival, we miss him very much.
