Guitarist Gary Clark, Jr. is uniting cities and cultures through music!
Clark, in conjunction with The Traffic King of Sound, has announced the first annual Maverick Music Festival featuring Gary Clark, Jr., The Toadies, Girl in a Coma, Arum Rae and Henry + the Invisibles on Saturday, March 23, at Maverick Plaza inside historic La Villita in beautiful, downtown San Antonio. Daytime events are free and open to the public, while tickets for the nighttime lineup are available for purchase in advance for $28 plus fee at www.maverickmusicfestival.com.
Clark, along with his management team and partners in San Antonio, Texas, decided to build the festival to reinvigorate the music scene in San Antonio. An Austin native, Clark sees the event as an opportunity to bridge the gap between the vibrant Live Music Capitol of the World and neighboring San Antonio, Texas, only 80 miles away.
Everything's bigger and better in Texas, right?
This new, all-ages experience includes daytime programming from 10AM to 5PM, which features incredible local musicians who'll provide the soundtrack of San Antonio to residents and tourists alike, followed by a stellar set of national acts from 6PM to midnight to close out a big, bright, and starry night of amazing music. Both segments provide art and food villitas -little villages for all y'all non-Texans- that showcase some of the best local creative and food pioneers of the San Antonio area. There will also be tons of interactive fun to keep festivalgoers engaged all day.
About Maverick Music Fest: In 2013, a group of music lovers born and raised in San Antonio, Texas came together and decided to take their love of quality live concerts to the next level. They combined their prior music industry experiences to organize a music festival right in the heart of their hometown's historic downtown. The first annual Maverick Music Festival was created and, like magic, an amazing lineup of Texan headliners fell into place.
Texans, you going?
