Mix 94.7’s West of the Fest Concert, Presented by Visit Lauderdale, Returns March 15

Performances to Feature Phillip Phillips, Sam Nelson, Sarah Reeves, Knox and Cecilia Castleman at Buford’s in Austin, TX

Audacy Austin returns with its annual free music discovery showcase, West of the Fest, presented by Visit Lauderdale, Everyone Under the Sun. The event will feature performances by American Idol winner Phillip Phillips, Sam Nelson of X Ambassadors, Sarah Reeves, Knox and Cecilia Castleman on Friday, March 15, at Buford’s in Austin, TX. Hosted by Mix 94.7 (KAMX-FM), attendees will experience artists they love and explore sounds from emerging talent without cover charges, long lines or RSVPs attached.  

“Austin is known internationally as the ‘Live Music Capital of the World,’ and this time of the year in the city, we really prove why,” said Brad Booker, Morning Show Co-Host, Mix 94.7. “It’s so fun for listeners to see tomorrow’s superstars today, and they can do it without a badge or wristband at West of the Fest.”

Last year, West of the Fest brought fans up close and personal to artists including Brent Smith and Zach Myers of Shinedown, American Authors, and Charlotte Sands. In the past, the showcase has offered free access to stars who have risen to the top of the music industry, such as Ed Sheeran and Hanson. 

Doors will open at 11:00 a.m., and live music starts at 12:00 p.m. CT. The event is 21+ and free to attend with no RSVP required. Visit here for more information on this year’s event. 

Listeners can tune in to Mix 94.7 (KAMX-FM) in Austin on air and nationwide on the Audacy app and website. Fans can also connect with the station on social media via X, Facebook and Instagram.
