Gary Clark Jr., in conjunction with The Traffic King of Sound, is excited to announce the 1st Annual Maverick Music Festival featuring Gary Clark Jr., The Toadies, Girl in a Coma, Arum Rae, and Henry + the Invisibles on Saturday, March 23rd, at Maverick Plaza inside historic La Villita in downtown San Antonio. Daytime events are free and open to the public, while tickets for the nighttime lineup are available for purchase in advance at: www.maverickmusicfestival.com.
Clark, along with his management team and partners in San Antonio, TX, 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, TX, only 80 miles away.
This new, all-ages experience includes daytime programming from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., 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 6 p.m. to midnight to close out a big, bright, and starry night of amazing music. Both segments provide art and food villitas (little villages for 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.
