Stargayzer 2015

Published

on

ACL is finally over and the clean up has just begun, but the music never really stops in Austin. This weekend, the Stargayzer Festival returns to Austin as it hosts 3 days and 3 nights of music and performances by LGBTQIA musicians, deejays, emcees, drag performers, visual artists, comedians and performance artists. This year, the main stages will be held at three downtown venues — Elysium (7th & Red River), North Door (5th & Brushy) and Cheer Up Charlie‘s (9th & Red River).

Featured artists include San Francisco-based Double Duchess, Austin’s own Christeene, who is stopping back home in the middle of her America’s Moist Wanted Tour, and Brooklyn-based Big Dipper. One of the most anticipated acts of the festival is Erase Errata, as this will be one of their final shows … ever.

Three-Day Passes are available in advanced online for $35 or at the door for $40. Day passes are available at the door for each event for $15.
