Thanks to all the dub music fans from across the US and around the world who came to Auditorium Shores for the 2015 Austin Reggae Festival. Thanks as well to all these dub fans for helping raise funds to help the Capital Area Food Bank conquer hunger in our community (we will have more exact figures on moneys raised shortly). We apologize that the weather at this year’s event was so un-cooperative. For 2016, we expect bluer skies and greener grass. Please plan now for next year’s dates: Friday, April 15 through Sunday, April 17. Stay tuned to this website for more information!
Unfortunately, the 2015 Austin Reggae Festival has been canceled for Sunday, April 19. The severe storm that pounded Central Texas at about 9:00 pm last night simply dumped too much water on Auditorium Shores — and various areas of flooding have not yet dried out. After an extensive morning assessment of the premises, the City of Austin’s mandate is that we cannot open the park today without severely damaging the newly re-sodded grass at our community’s premiere outdoor venue. We apologize for today’s inconvenience, we thank you for your support of the Capital Area Food Bank, and we look forward to seeing you at next year’s Austin Reggae Festival (April 15-17, 2016).
We are thankful that we were able to evacuate Auditorium Shores before the epic storm on Saturday evening. However the intensity of last night’s rain requires significant cleanup at Auditorium Shores. Please stay tuned to this website for updates on opening time for the Austin Reggae Festival on Sunday, April 19.
