Hello Sonicbids artists, The Urban Music Fest is gearing up for the 14th annual festival this year in Austin, Texas. We're currently looking for Local, Regional and National acts for this year's celebration. The Urban Music Fest was derived in response to the African American Quality of Life initiative brought in 2005. The Urban Music Fest is Austin’s largest African American tourist weekend of the year where over 60,000 visitors are expected to participate in all types of activities around Austin. The festival has an assortment of vendors including food, retail, and social services. If you're interested in being apart of one of the biggest African American celebrations in America, this is your chance to get involved!
