Fan Fest Invades Rainey St.

Rainey-Street-Fan-Fest-2015It is Formula One weekend. Do not get scared and stay home; go out and party among the race fans. Put on a fake accent and pretend you are Dutch, yesh? Make some new friends for when you travel to Mexico, Brazil, Germany or the UK. Apologize about the weather as the last few races at COTA have been blessed by perfect sunshiny goodness.

Here is a quick rundown of the Rainey St. Bud Light stage headliners…

8:20 p.m. Elle King
9:45 p.m. Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue

7:00 p.m. Money Chicha
8:30 p.m. Ozomatli
10:30 p.m. Mayer Hawthorne

7:00 p.m. Holiday Mountain
8:30 p.m. A-Trak
10:30 p.m. Public Enemy

There is also a show at ACL Live for you willing to shell some jack to have an evening with Lionel Richie on Saturday and plenty more shows and offers tied to Fan Fest at venues you know and love; for instance Dan Falconberry at Mohawk or Gang of Four at The Parish on Friday. You’ll notice there is nothing planned for Sunday. If you get a Sunday F1 ticket, you can see Elton John post-race. They are using the Super Stage set up Metallica and Nicki Manaj had during the X Games. I’ll be there wearing big sunglasses.


  • Public Enemy is playing Austin this weekend?

  • They are quietly playing on Rainey St. Weird right?

  • Man that site for Fan Fest is really god damn confusing. I had to find this out by reading the comments section on some old news posting on Austin 360….

    1. The shows on the Bud Light Rainey St. stage are completely free. Shit show?

    2. No one seems to know where on Rainey St. this stage is located.

    3. Some of the other shows on Rainey may or may not have a cover.

    Sooooo you’re on your own folks.

  • I just looked at the PE website and they are in Europe right now. I’m guessing that Chuck D and the boyz will not be there. I saw them with Anthrax at Brixton Academy in 1992 and it was cool.
    I would be interested to see what PE shows up on Saturday, can you keep us posted?

  • PE site has their next date in November. Allegedly, the real deal…
