As you know, BrooklynVegan is taking over ALL THREE STAGES at connecting Austin venues Hotel Vegas & Volstead for FOUR DAYS STRAIGHT this week, and it's all 100% FREE (no RSVP or badges either). There's a big outdoor stage, and smaller stages inside Hotel Vegas & Volstead. Collectively we're calling the four day long party "Hotel Vegan" (located at 1500 E. 6th St, Austin, TX).

Friday's party is presented with HobNob Wines, our official wine partner of all four days of Hotel Vegan, and The Original Moonshine, our official spirit partner on Friday and Saturday.

We announced Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday in full.

ME what trend is served by all the so called tastemakers having all the exact same bands play at their parties? so no one gets left out? aren't there so many bands everyone could have a completely unique line up and the festival goers have that much more of a chance to discover something new and good? truly pathetic that every blog, radio station, brand has the exact same 25 artists playing them!!!

if the festival goer wants to "discover something good and new" they should troll the hundreds of shitty shows in lame venues with no name bands. good luck!

Awesome curator bringing awesome bands to an awesome venue in an awesome city at an awesome event.

If you wrote a negative comment, you are a probably a douchebag.

Congratulations for posting such a useful weblog. Your blog isn’t only informative but also very artistic too. There normally are very couple of individuals who can write not so simple articles that creatively. Keep up the great work !!
