Saturnalia Music Festival marks the end of Austin’s music festival season by presenting a genre-defying, multi-stage event. The festival brings together an array of Austin’s subcultures and tastemakers to share in merrymaking and artistic exchange. It’s an immersive experience featuring a diverse lineup of local, regional, and national bands. Saturnalia's historic origin as an ancient Roman festival honoring Saturn and celebrating the coming winter featured a carnival atmosphere of arts, feasting and revelry. In the spirit of its name, Saturnalia 2018 proudly promotes music, community, and creative exploration in Austin, Texas, the Live Music Capital of the World.
