Ramblin’ Roads Fest promises three days (October 1 to 3) filled with country, Latin, rock, pop, electronica, Americana, jazz/blues, bluegrass and more. In fact, there will be more than 60 events in all with 50-plus bands taking the stage at 18 different venues throughout Arlington. Talk about a special live music weekend.

Dan Cavanaugh and Remy Le Boeuf, William Clark Green, Mike Ryan, Bobby Pulido, La Original Sonora Dinamita, Jamestown Revival, Monica Saldivar, Gene Watson, Grupo Control, Shaker Hymns, Big Ass Brass Band, Tatiana Mayfield, Grupo Feroz, Catie Offerman and Jesse Stratton are some of the acts that already have been revealed.

Texas Live!,  Arlington Music Hall and Levitt Pavilion are just some of the Arlington venues that will be prominently used during the Ramblin’ Roads Music Festival.
