The ALL ATX 2017 Showcase will offer this year’s biggest celebration of Austin Music benefitting Austin musicians. Event proceeds will benefit four of Austin’s most beloved music nonprofit organizations, including Health Alliance for Austin Musicians, SIMS Foundation, Austin Music Foundation and Black Fret . In 2016, the event raised $500,000, which was directed to the charities to focus on artist healthcare and development. ALL ATX has partnered with C3 Presents to deliver the largest event in their history, and hope fans will help raise even more money for Austin musicians.
ALL ATX’s primary mission is to protect and develop Austin’s position as the “Live Music Capital of the World” by helping Austin musicians with education and affordability solutions.
ALL ATX 2017 is generously sponsored by Keller Williams Realty, Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Kendra Scott, Baylor Scott & White Health, Keller Capital, Building Image Group, Flieller, Kruger, Skelton & Plyler, PLLC, Mint Title, and more.
