HONK!TX is excited to return to Austin for our third fantastic year!
This year, scores of musician will descend once more on the city of Austin to bring you the biggest, boldest, and brassiest HONK!TX yet!; our parade organizers are working tirelessly to amp Sunday’s spectacle to epic proportions; and for the first time ever, we will be screening films about brass-band culture worldwide! The fun kicks off Thursday evening with a benefit for visiting HONK! bands, followed by three days of music, free and open to the public, from Friday through Sunday.
What Is HONK!TX?
HONK!TX is a nonprofit, community-driven festival that brings brass bands from around the country to perform absolutely free in the public spaces of Austin, TX.
Performing an array of genres ranging from European Klezmer and Balkan, to New Orleans second-line brass music, spectacular bands will come from far and wide this year to transform everyday locations around Austin into organic stages, where the line between crowd and performers dissolves and music, mirth and mayhem are born. Harking back to a time when festivities and entertainment were not something created for the enjoyment of a passive audience, but rather an experience created through the participation of each and every person involved, HONK!TX is more than just a music festival; it is a celebration of community, collaboration, individuality, and creative expression. Come HONK! with us!!!

At the Yellow Bike Project we are contributing to the HONK! festival by building loaner bikes for the musicians to ride while they are here in Austin. YOU can be a part of HONK! by volunteering at the Yellow Bike Project in February or March. Just come on by and tell a Coordinator that you want to volunteer for HONK!, any weeknight, 1216b Webberville Rd.
