A grassroots movement is spreading around the globe, cities are bringing in the Summer Solstice - the longest day of the year and the first day of the summer - with celebrations of music, peace, love and art.

Solstice Festival is Austin's rendition of the world wide festival. Brought to you by Solstice, and Special Events Live. Special Events Live organizes the Pecan Street Festival - amongst many other events - and Solstice produces concerts at over 30 venues around the city throughout the year. They are the creators of the booking technology - - which booked 1,500 concerts in Austin last year and 38 cities around the world.

Solstice Festival is all about celebrating local culture. We highlight primarily Austin artists, local food trucks, performers, art vendors, and art installations created in town. Please join us for this incredible celebration, taking place at venues around the city with a main event at Pan Am Park in the heart of the East Side.
