Downtown San Marcos will be filled with music, fun and happy music lovers on Saturday, April 27 as KTSW Radio presents the 6th annual My Radio Fest, or MR Fest, as it is affectionately known. The festival gives fans, the community and Texas State students the opportunity to see the music usually heard on the college radio station.

The event is free, is hosted by many local venues and makes the square the hippest place in town (pun intended). Mr. Fest’s motto? “No Cash//No Wristbands//No Problem.” Mr. Fest is sponsored by Dakota Ranch Homes, Honest Tea, Kind Healthy Snacks, San Marvelous, Texas Music Water, Montgomery Machine Company and Paranoid Magazine.

MR Fest kicks off today with pool parties at Dakota Ranch and The Black and White Years, Act Rights, The Couch and Roger Sellers playing at Texas Music Theater. Saturday features a full range of music genres. A full listing of bands and venues follows. The Foodstock stage at Tantra Coffeehouse benefits the Hays County Food Bank.
