The third annual festival is scheduled for May 23-26 this year, which of course is during Austin’s best season for hanging out with several hundred very close friends at multiple venues across the city. While specific details have not yet been released, these tickets will sell out in a hurry.

The Whole Enchilada weekend pass lands you access to all of the main events, the specialty pop-ups, and the music shows. The fest was created by James Beard Award-winner Aaron Franklin, Guerilla Suit principal and Mohawk owner James Moody, and Mike Thelin, co-founder of Feast Portland, and those dudes make it their mission to pair up with all-star chefs and bartenders with skills that make Tom Cruise in Cocktail look like a kindergarten act. The food and drinks are bound to be fantastic, but large doses of killer headlining music acts adds up to a recipe for a helluva good time.

The festival donates a portion of proceeds to the SAFE Alliance, and the 2019 talent and programming will be announced in February. Check the Hot Luck Fest website for more information.
