Info & History

My Radio Festival was created in San Marcos, Texas in 2008 and takes place in the city’s downtown area, The Square. The festival was created to give local and regional artists the opportunity to display their musical talents to the fans and locals in San Marcos. The amount of fans and entertainers that attend the festival continues to increase every year.

MR Fest was originally a one-day and one venue event that  has since expanded into two days on The Square. The event always takes place on the last weekend in April. MR Fest is hosted by KTSW-FM 89.9, the Texas State University student-run radio station.

MR Fest has increased the number of people entertained from 200 fans in 2008 to almost 5,000 in 2012. The festival has earned two awards for “Best Community Involvement.”

The 9th Annual MR Fest included Seattle-based headliners La Luz and Night Beats. Previous headliners have included many known artists from the Austin and San Marcos area such as: White Denim, Quiet Company and Black Joe Lewis and The Honey Bears. As the festival continues to gain recognition with fans, it also gains recognition from new and upcoming local artists and entertainers. 

The public is allowed to attend all performances free of charge and no type of wristbands or tickets are needed for entry.
