In Austin for ACL weekend(s) but stuck without a wristband? Don’t fret, Raw Paw has you covered with their fifth anniversary of Ditch the Fest! As an alternative to the hustle and bustle (not to mention hefty price tags) of Austin City Limits, Ditch the Fest guarantees the best of what the city has to offer in terms of local music talent. With a wide range of genres and tastes to experience, Ditch the Fest will be happening today until 2AM as well as next Saturday, October 10th from 2PM until 2AM. Utilizing both indoor and outdoor stages, you can catch 25 live acts today as well as another 25 acts next Saturday at Empire Control Room & Garage. The festival will be all ages and $10 for a ticket. On top of music, you can also catch local vendors in tow from WitchxxDoctor, BossBabesATX, CogDut and more. Check out set times and more about Ditch the Fest on their Facebook event page. You can also sample bands on the lineup below on their SoundCloud mix.
