Looking for a “greatest hits” music and arts experience? Then be in Dallas April 13 and help celebrate ten (that’s right — 10!) years of the Homegrown Music Festival.

The festival began in 2009 solely featuring regional music and arts. Acts such as Johnathan Tyler and Northern Lights, Telegraph Canyon and many others gathered crowds in downtown Dallas for what has become known as a can’t-miss event. Following the inaugural year’s success, the festival continued to host the likes of Spoon, Explosions In The Sky, Shakey Graves, and more. Joshua Florence, festival founder, is eager to continue to bring unforgettable moments to the city Homegrown calls home.

This year, Florence and his team curated a lineup of their greatest hits by bringing back some of their favorite bands to partner with the best up and coming artists from across Texas. On Saturday, April 13, at Main Street Garden Park come out to experience a mile long list of live performances including Toadies, Tripping Daisy and, for one time only, Seryn.

“Seeing the Toadies and Tripping Daisy together in I don’t know how long is something I’m definitely looking forward to,” said Florence. More artists are being announced as the April 13 concert date approaches for what is sure to be the best Homegrown Music and Arts Festival yet.

Tickets for the 10th annual event can be purchased here.

General Admission passes are $54; VIP $99. Dogs and children have free admission.
