Welcome to urbanmusicblog.net – My blog dedicated to urban music. On this post I would like to talk about the annual Auburn Urban Music Festival that will be happening March 29-30, 2013. The upcoming festival (http://www.prlog.org/11996524-lifelock-promo-code-20-off-coupon.html) will be the eighth annual and there have been some big names in previous years.
The Auburn Urban Music Festival is an outdoor music festival (http://www.prlog.org/11996518-bh-cosmetics-coupon-codes-save-30.html) with a family-friendly atmosphere. It is held in Austin Texas along the banks of Town Lake at Auditorium Shores. This festival is a venue for big-name acts and local performers alike.
At the 2012 Festival Babyface and Boyz II Men were a couple of the big acts that performed. Boyz II Men had a string of hits in the early 90s, when I was in high school, and I have fond memories of that time. Songs like The End of the Road (http://www.prlog.org/11996370-green-smoke-coupon-code-latest-working-coupons.html), which coincidentally was written by Babyface and It's so Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday were some of my favorite songs at the time. And of course everyone knows that Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds is responsible for a number of hits not only as a performer but also as a writer and producer. Other big-name acts that have performed at the festival in the past include Chaka Khan, Ray J, Jeffrey Osborne, Cameo, and Trey Songz to name a few.
Each year this festival is scheduled to coincide with the Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays which is an annual relay event (http://www.prlog.org/11998277-tigerdirect-coupon-code-20-off.html) featuring track and field athletes from Texas high schools and universities as well as professional athletes. At the 2012 event that occurred at the end of March there were over 6000 athletes participating. It is the largest relay event in the Southwest and attracts an audience of approximately 40,000 to 60,000 people each year.
The lineup of artists for the 2013 Festival has not been announced yet but on the official website for the festival (http://www.prlog.org/11996509-checks-unlimited-offer-code-50-off-coupon.html) they are taking a poll of artists that their visitors would like to see. On the poll you can vote for. SWV, Isley Brothers, Keith Sweat, En Vogue, Next, Kool & The Gang, Angie Stone, Raheem Devaughn, Charlie Wilsonn, Anthony Hamilton, or Bootsy Collins.
I am already making plans to attend next year's festival. Because I am planning many months in advance I was able to easily secure some inexpensive airline tickets and I have found a hotels.com coupon that will give me a great price on a room. The event is sponsored by State Farm (http://www.prlog.org/11996528-sittercity-promo-code-25-off-coupon.html) and ticket prices range from $25 to $75. If you are interested in attending but would like a little more information or a better idea of what the festival is all about, you can find a lot of videos on YouTube, posted by people that attended the event in years past.
