"RedGorilla Music Fest was seriously one of my most enjoyable in Austin. Great acts and production with everything running on time (which, if you're familiar with SXSW, is no small feat). I look forward to many more in the future!"

RedGorilla Music Fest launched six years ago as the DreamScapers Artist Showcase and grew each year under that name. In 2007, the showcase branded the event RedGorilla Music Fest, and over 200 artists participated in shows at venues on 6th Street in Austin, Texas. In 2008, RedGorilla hosted 300 bands, solo artists, and DJs and expanded the event to eight stages. The 2009 festival will boast even more artists and venues, and its mission still remains the same: to promote up-and-coming independent music in all genres and help independent artists further their careers.
The 2009 RedGorilla showcases will take place from Wednesday, March 18 to Saturday, March 21 in venues on 6th Street, right in the heart of all the action. The event continues to be a “No Badge Required” event, it is free to attend and is open to the general public.

"If you are looking for a professional and very responsive experience, then look no further than RedGorilla. Working with RedGorilla meant things could and did happen for one our acts, The Colour. They made it pleasurable and profitable experience. One that we wish to revisit time and time again- of course with their permission!! If you have this opportunity to work with these guys, you'd be a fool to turn it down."
