KUTX 98.9 and Four Seasons Hotel Austin are partnering to connect music fans to some of the best acts performing at the 2017 Austin City Limits Festival.
This year’s KUTX Live at the Four Seasons concert takes place from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., Friday, Oct. 6, on the beautiful back lawn of Four Seasons Hotel Austin.
New Orleans-based blues-soul-garage-rock musician Benjamin Booker headlines the showcase this year. Also performing are organic moonshine roots musician Valerie June; former frontman for The Walkmen Hamilton Leithauser; and up-and-coming Austin band Annabelle Chairlegs with their Sixties-inspired psych-rock with hints of surf-rock and noir.
This popular event is open to the public on a first-come, first-served basis. Bring cash and a blanket to sit on. Admission is $10 per person (cash only please) and includes a breakfast taco, a KIND bar and bottomless coffee. Kids ages 3-10 are $5, kids 2 and under are free. Proceeds benefit the Seton Shivers Cancer Center.
Limited self-parking is available in the hotel garage on a first-come, first served basis at a discounted rate of $5 per car.
