From 5 t0 10pm on Sunday, we hope to see your smiling faces and bobbing heads at the 2018 Fort Worth Weekly Music Awards Festival (#MAF18). This is the 17th iteration of our festival, and this year we’ve gone back to our roots: one day, one neighborhood, eight venues, 40 bands, no cover. All of the action will take place in the Near Southside, and there will be complimentary Texas Silver Star Whiskey shuttles zooming around the area to ferry you from club to club.

Since you’re not paying anything to see the bands and being chauffeured around for free, we would appreciate it if you’d drop $5 to purchase a digital download of our annual compilation, Frequencies Vol. 9, featuring some of the best up-and-coming bands the 817 has to offer. Sales from the album will benefit the United Way of Tarrant County. Thanks to everyone who supports local music all year round. Here is the lineup:
