The Urban Music Festival 2019 celebrates its 14th year with high energy performances on Friday-Saturday, March 29-30. This year’s festival promises to be another fun-filled weekend full of great entertainment and community participation.
Friday’s lineup features Blackstreet, Syleena Johnson, Paul Rogers & Natural Change, Kyle Turner & Michael Ward, Fingerprints ft. Toni Redd, Don Diego, Blue Mist Band, and DJ Casanova. Saturday’s lineup will include Stokely, Calvin Richardson, The Ohio Players, Certified Slim, Shakespeare, Bavu Blakes, Rose Short, Suzann Christine, and Soultree Collective.
More than 9,000 music revelers will converge on Auditorium Shores at Lady Bird Lake to enjoy Austin’s only music festival focused on R&B, neo-soul, hip hop and soul music. Today, UMF is a landmark event and a testament to a committed joint effort by music fans and producers.
From its start, UMF has played a significant role in the community as a part of the Austin Quality of Life Initiative. It is arguably Austin’s signature event highlighting African-American cultural contributions to the city. UMF has managed this feat by focusing on breaking new boundaries each year and continues to reach the hearts of urban music lovers during Texas Relays weekend.
Tickets for UMF range from $40 to $230. Friday, March 29 gates open at 3 p.m. and the night’s events end at 10:30 p.m. Saturday, March 30, gates open at noon with the show ending at 10:30 p.m.
