To celebrate AUMF’s move to the next level, an evening of live music, fun, games, drink and food special and free prizes will be extended to Austin’s hottest people ready to celebrate the festival’s seventh year of bringing good and clean for the entire family to the City of Austin. Tickets for both days’ events will available for purchase throughout the evening. AUMF will also be a raffling away two sets of two-day passes for two people for 2012’s festival on Auditorium Shores in downtown Austin. This year’s Urban Music Fest will be held on March 30-31, 2012.
AUMF is excited to present the Ticket Release Party to get the excitement rolling for this year’s festival for the hottest urban concert series to hit Austin during the nationally attended Clyde Littlefield Texas Relay’s Weekend. 2012 has taken the festival to the next level featuring a two-day fun-filled event for the entire family. This year’s two-day festival will include national recording artists; Kenneth “BabyFace” Edmonds, Boys II Men, Miguel, Melanie Fiona, V.I.C “The King of Wobble” and others.
On February 1, 2012, tickets will be available to purchase. Tickets for the Friday portion of the festival will be $20 presale, and $25 at the gate. Tickets for the Saturday events will be $25 presale and $30 at the gate. Additionally, tickets for both nights can be purchased for $30 as a combination package at the Ticket Release Happy Hour on February 1, 2012.
The Festival has consistently provided a venue for local performers as well as presented top national R&B acts that provide family-friendly entertainment. To ensure the continued growth and success of the Festival, in 2009 State Farm announced their three-year sponsorship of both the Festival and the Relays. “State Farm has a long and demonstrated history of supporting the African-American community in the markets that we serve and these events offer a great opportunity to encourage community growth,” noted Mike Hargis, Texas Zone Agency Vice President for State Farm.
More than 15,000 music revelers annually converge on Auditorium Shores to enjoy Austin’s only music festival focused on R&B, neo-soul and hip hop music. Annually, more than 40,000 visitors from the state of Texas and the southwestern region of the United States flock to Austin during Texas Relays weekend to enjoy athletic competition and cultural connections.
