HONK!TX is a different kind of festival that will present music to Austin in an unprecedented fashion. 
Twenty community street bands will participate in transforming everyday locations into organic stages where the line between crowd and performers dissolves. HONK!TX's unique format will demonstrate the potential for creative use of our public spaces without the need for amplification or artificial stages.
