On August 29, award-winning artists Riders Against the Storm (RAS) will host the 2nd Annual RAS Day, presented by Loudmouth Rentals. The all day, family-friendly festival seeks to cultivate community, inspire unity and encourage rejuvenation with an eclectic lineup of performances, health-minded food vendors, and interactive activities for all to enjoy. We interviewed Chaka and Qi Dada last year, in anticipation of their performance at the Austin City Limits Music Festival. RAS fans also have a chance to hear the band on Wednesday, August 19th at the wrap up of 2015 KGSR’s Blues on the Green outdoor concert series.
The annual festival was created in 2014 to give the ATX a way to come together and get down all in the name of community. Using the platform afforded them by winning Band of the Year for the second year in a row at the 2015 Austin Music Awards, RAS is looking to bring the good times to Central Texas.
With her international following, electric sound, and unique hip-hop expression, Jean Grae will headline the all-day festival.
The full 2015 lineup includes:
- Hardproof Afrobeat
- Mindz of A Different Kind
- Keyzstreet Band w/ Alesia Lani and Brenden Foster
- Lady Shacklin
- La Vida Buena
- Charlie Belle
- The Finest Kind
