Thirteenth Annual Fusebox Festival: April 12-16, 2017

Join us in beautiful Austin, TX for the 13th Fusebox Festival. Fusebox is a hybrid arts festival that champions adventurous works of art in theater, dance, film, music, literature, visual and culinary arts.

The 2017 festival will take place over 5 action-packed days in dozens of venues and locations all over the city. Hundreds of local, national, and international artists in all disciplines converge for one of the most unique cultural events in the country that reaches 20,000+ people annually.

Thanks to the support of our generous community, we will continue our Free Range Art initiative and make the 2017 Fusebox Festival completely free to attend.

We expect to post the full line-up and schedule in January 2017. Follow us on Facebooktwitter, and join our email list for the latest updates.
