RedGorilla Music Fest launched eight years ago as the DreamScapers Artist Showcase and grew each year under that name. In 2007, the showcase was branded as RedGorilla Music Fest, and over 200 artists participated in shows at venues on 6th Street in Austin, Texas. In 2008, RedGorilla hosted 300 bands, solo artists, and DJs and expanded the event to eight stages. The 2009 festival boasted over 500 artists on 11 stages, and the mission remains the same: To promote up-and-coming independent music in all genres and help independent artists further their careers.
