2016 Featured Texas Music Festival Reviews
Tommy Alverson's 19th Annual Family Gathering Music Festival - held is Mineral Wells at Hog Mountain Resort in early October, the Family Gathering has 3 days of good country music, BYOB, close by camping, and a fun smaller crowd which makes this festival feel like a true family gathering and an opportunity to listen some great music under the stars and oak trees with some close friends.
Larry Joe Taylor's Rhymes & Vines Music Festival - held just outside of Stephenville, Rhymes & Vines is outstanding with camping (several hundred water and electric sites and plenty of dry camping) close to the stage, a great line-up of Texas country singer songwriters, a fun crowd, an intimate stage where you can get close to the artists, and Bloody Mary Morning with live music each day.
Thomas Michael Riley Music Festival - one of favorites because it's in a unique and fun setting, always has a fun line-up, camping is within a two minute walk, the fans are friendly, fun, and outgoing just like Thomas Michael Riley. This year the line-up included Davin James, Cooder Graw, Jason Allen, Tommy Alverson, Buddy Jewel Trio, and more.
Cherokee Creek Music Festival - wow, what a fantastic festival with an unbelievable line-up of everything from Americana to country to blues and rock & roll; free very tasty food on Friday night and all day Saturday - burgers to BBQ to Gumbo or salads and cheesecake; free close by camping; a beautiful setting; and BYOB. Some of the line-up included Bob Schneider, Jimmy LaFave, Dwight Yoakum, John Fogerty, Lyle Lovett and his Large Band, Bruce Hornsby and lots more!
How can you beat 6 days of music with over 50 talented Texas country artists, close by camping, Bloody Mary Mornings with music and Zing Zang Bloody Marys, BYOB and lawn chairs, 3 stages, over 60,000 fun loving party and music fans, and more. Just a few of the artists in the line-up included: Gary P Nunn, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Richard Clark Green, The Tejas Brothers, Roger Creager, Reckless Kelly, Kevin Fowler, Max Stalling, Stoney LaRue, Randy Rogers Band, Walt Wilkins, Davin James, and lots more.
Some of the reasons we keep coming back to Old Settler's Music Festival, this is our 10th or 11th Old Settler's, in Driftwood is because: the camping is a blast and the campground is always alive with music, food, laughter, and good times; the music is outstanding and includes everything from country to reggae to folk to bluegrass; the setting is beautiful; and the fans are great - friendly, outgoing, and true music lovers!
This was our first time to attend the two day Outlaws & Legends Music Festival just north of downtown Abilene and we loved it. A great line-up of music legends outlaws like Dean Dillon, Jerry Jeff Walker, Gary P Nunn, Pat Green, Cory Morrow, Mark Powell, Deana Carter, and lots more. Plus very close to the stage camping under the trees, BYOB, and a fun crowd of music lovers.
If you're into interesting and unique documentary films, a variety of different music, and some beautiful photography then Thin Line Festival is a perfect fit. It's held in Denton and this year it featured 17 feature films ranging from a monkeys struggle to survive to investigating climate change from an Oscar nominated director, 25 short films ranging from 5 to 20 minutes, and hundreds of photos from different photographers, plus music at 4 different venues.
