Austin’s New Year celebration presented by Fasten!
Bring in the New Year with a free, fun and family-friendly celebration.
Austin’s New Year will transform Vic Mathias Shores into a wonderland of music, art, special performances and of course, Austin’s legendary food favorites, as the community closes out 2016.
The New Year’s Eve event, hosted by the City of Austin, kicks off at 3 p.m. Dec. 31, culminating with a fireworks extravaganza at 10 p.m. Event ends at 10:30p.m.
This year’s event will be bigger than ever with four stages, 22 local and regional bands, food trucks, kid’s activities and multiple art installations.
Co-headliners Shinyribs, an American country-soul, swamp funk band; and legendary Texas singer-songwriter Ray Wylie Hubbard are featured on the Lake Stage, along with the acclaimed young bluesmen The Peterson Brothers.
Get ready to jump up and down with a CAPYAC dance party headlining at the Oak stage; Harvest Thieves bringing Americana and folk-rock; and Roxy Roca, an Austin-based, six-piece, southern soul band driven by a horn section and powerful vocals.
The Community Stage includes 11 acts featuring recording artist Wendy Colonna and Kalu James with his group The Electric Joint.
