Art Outside; The Festival Awaits

The festivities are about to begin! Art Outside is next weekend folks, October 22nd-25th. A four day camping festival just one hour outside of Austin. This festival includes music, performances, visual art and workshops to stimulate all of your senses. This is the 11th year and it is not cooling down! Well, the weather will be but nothing else! The fest has a close intimate feeling with guests and artists, and that’s something you just don’t get at other festivals here in ATX.

There are 4 stages with 83 sets starting Thursday and isn’t stopping till Sunday at midnight. The acts vary from electronic to rock n’ roll, folk to DJ sets to live performance art . Lettuce, Holding Space, Bonobo DJ set, Sangre Del Sol, Elephant Revival, Transcontinental Trip, Greensky Bluegrass, Golden Dawn Arkestra, Rising Appalachia and Papasido are just a few to start with! The list just doesn’t stop on the amazing acts that are about to happen. AOS fest has an amazing schedule set with music going on every day and every night till sunrise.

Live art is in the making all day. You can watch artists create their master pieces from start to finish as the weekend rolls through. The artists are set up all throughout the festival grounds surrounding stages, under trees and vending set up with pieces ready! You have the chance to meet artists personally and see their passion and creativity from hand to canvas. Featured Guests Artists include Michael & Violet Divine, Randal Roberts & Morgan Mandela, DELA, Zach Johnson, Andy Reed, Kengo, Ian Spencer, Bild, Norm4eva , Molly Gardner and Olive Love are going to be in the gallery with more TBA! Art Installations will be covering Apache Pass fest grounds by Christina Sporrong, Shrines, Christian Ristow, The Wooden Nickel Carnival, James Peterson and Michael Christian.

THERE IS A DIDGERIDOO WORKSHOP. How cool is that?! Who doesn’t want to learn the didgeridoo?! Just the name of it is something to spark interest. There is also acro yoga, essential oil mixing, permaculture 101 and a galactic portrait art class w/ DELA and more. There has been some talk of “laughing concentration circles” too. Hmmm.

You can think of it as “Austins’ Burning Man” without the harsh weather conditions. The festival is stimulating and interactive, there are so many things going on to see, do and experience. The music, art, food, workshops, interactive art pieces, camping, and vending are all kid-friendly and totally catered to the people and the artists. Those are just a few of the things to anticipate the experience of true expression.  TICKETS STILL ON SALE. Who knows what else is going to happen that they haven’t told us, —> hinting to you AOS! Can’t wait!!
