(2:45pm, field stage) Sweet Spirit's album Cokomo is the perfect snapshot of where the band is right now: a confident blend of garage rock, glammy pop, bouncy soul, and Ellis out front, owning every song. Through the evolution of Sweet Spirit she’s learned how to find her own voice while shining in the context of a supremely talented group – or, as Pop Press International put it, “the power of balancing autonomy with cooperation.”
Sweet Spirit headlines the Field Stage and joins Mayor Steve Adler for our Aerial Photo Project.
(1:30pm, field stage) Riders Against the Storm are recipients of ‘Band of the Year’ honors at the 2014 and 2015 Austin Music Awards, and represent a significant first in the ‘Live Music Capital.’ In 32 years, hip hop had never received the top honor. Winning the title twice in a row is an accomplishment shared by only a handful of bands!
