The time has come to go out, soak in the blazing Texas rays and enjoy the benefits of living in the live music capital of the world and one of the liveliest cities on earth. Whether you are a broke college student looking to have a good time, or are simply not interested in the more pricy festivals the city has to offer, there is good news. Austin has something to do for everyone this summer, and best of all it’s FREE!



Beginning June 9 at 8 p.m., KGSR radio will be honoring the city’s musical fame by putting on the annual Unplugged at the Grove concert series.

Also presented by KGSR will be the annual Blues on the Green festival on June 22nd. The fest is sure to give everyone a chance to rock out to local favorite indie bands!

However, if your music taste is on the mellower side, make sure to go check out the Oscar Winners concert series featuring melodies from top prized movie soundtracks, such as Star Wars and Frozen.

For the art connoisseurs there will be the Blanton’s Third Thursday event on June 16. The event will include a full schedule of relaxing, activities such as yoga, concerts, movies and even a romantic evening art tour.

If you are looking to do something for the greater good of fellow Austinites, there will also be the Arts from the Streets fundraiser which benefits local, homeless artists while showcasing the hidden art of Austin.



The Colorado River Ramble and the Deep Eddy Splash Park Movie Nights will also prove to be memorable times. These events are perfect for those looking for a way to stay active and enjoy the outdoors under the beautiful Austin skyline. Whether you are looking for a movie date under the stars or an adventurous outing with friends, both events will be a good idea to keep in mind.

Summer is here and that means it is time make memories with loved ones, pursue guilty pleasures and embark on adventures worth telling in the fall.
