Old Settler's Music Festival Announces Schedule for 25th Annual Event April 19-22


AUSTIN, Texas — An exceptional lineup of roots, bluegrass and Americana artists will perform at the 25th annual Old Settler’s Music Festival Thursday, April 19, through Sunday, April 22, at the Salt Lick BBQ Pavilion and Camp Ben McCulloch in the Texas Hill Country, just south of Austin on FM 1826.

Four-day wristbands with campground access, three-day wristbands with and without campground access, single-day wristbands and all-inclusive platinum passes are available at a discount through April 6 via oldsettlersmusicfest.org or frontgatetickets.com. Prices will increase after April 6. Single-day wristbands for Friday and Saturday, April 20 and 21, will be available at the gate for $65 per day.  Sunday tickets are also available for $30. Children 12 and younger are admitted free. Camping access always sells out, so early purchasing is recommended for those planning to enjoy the full experience.

The festival’s slogan is “real music done right,” but that’s not all Old Settler’s offers. Attractions include workshops, sing-alongs, campground-stage jam sessions, kids’ activities, a market area full of unique arts and crafts, specialty foods and brews and of course, the Youth Talent Competition, where the headliners of tomorrow might gain early recognition.
