About KUTX Music

KUTX is a non-profit, listener-supported music service broadcasting from the University of Texas. We can be heard at 98.9 FM in Austin, Texas, and streamed worldwide here at kutx.org.

Launched as a full-time music service by KUT (Austin’s NPR Station) in 2013, KUTX exists to reflect the spirit and diversity of Austin’s music scene, and to provide a global platform for Austin artists. We amplify the voices of Austin artists – known and emerging – through daily airplay, as well as live broadcasts from our Studio 1A performance space, features like the KUTX Artist of the Month, live events like Rock the Park and partnerships with NPR Music. KUTX features more local music than any station in Austin.

Additionally, we use our air to introduce you to the best new music from around the world. Austin is a destination for live music, and we bring you closer to it through coverage of Austin’s numerous music festivals, our daily Austin Music Minute feature, and events like our annual KUTX Live from the Four Seasons broadcast during SXSW. And we take you deep into the creative process of artists, with our podcast, This Song

From indie rock to hip hop, from electronica to outlaw country, from pop to psych-metal, KUTX plays more than 30,000 different songs and host nearly 300 live music performances every year. At KUTX, music matters to us – Austin music most of all.

Over 85% of KUTX’s operational funding comes from listeners and businesses in our community. We couldn’t be Austin music’s loudest champion without you; thank you for helping us thrive and grow.
