Summertime in Austin begins and ends with KGSR's Blues on the Green. At least that's the way it's been for the past 26 years. KGSR’s Blues on the Green has grown into an essential element of this city’s fabled live music culture: it's a tradition if you're a native to Austin and it's a rite of passage if you're new here.
Each summer, KGSR hosts the longest running FREE concert series in Austin, Blues on the Green – a bona fide Austin institution with endless "best of" lists to prove it. Blues on the Green invites music lovers out to Zilker Park to enjoy a family and pet friendly night of homegrown music in a relaxed atmosphere. Each show pairs two Austin artists with music beginning at 8pm. What started as a celebration of the blues has evolved into an eclectic, diverse showcase for Austin-based artists of all stripes: from country and rock, to singer-songwriters, large Latin music ensembles and yes, good ol’ fashioned blues.
