The BMI stage is returning to Zilker Park at the Austin City Limits Music Festival on Oct. 1-3 and 8-10 with a diverse lineup of rising pop, rock, country, Latin, Americana, hip-hop and R&B recording artists.
Grunge-rock band Bexley will kick off the first weekend, followed by performances from Austin-based Latin Grammy nominee Gina Chavez, surf rock band Sun Room, Dominican-Italian X Factor contestant Yendry, and more. 2021 CMA New Artist of the Year nominee Hardy will wrap up the weekend.
Weekend two at the BMI Stage will see performances from Austin-locals, including Columbian funk band Superfónicos, DIY rapper The Teeta, and Americana singer-songwriter David Ramirez. Rising pop singer-songwriter Leyla Blue, Jack White-championed pop-rock band Mattiel, Spanish-Cuban pop artist Samantha Sanchez, and more will round out the weekend.
“BMI is grateful for our continued partnership with C3 to provide a new generation of songwriters the opportunity to play at one of the most unique music events in the world,” says Clay Bradley, VP Creative, Nashville. “We’re always proud to develop up-and-coming talent and this year we’re happy to be back on festival grounds and showcase twenty-two incredible BMI acts.”
