Fusebox Festival brings Elvis, pandrogynous drag queen pop divas, tent revivals and more to Austin
While most people in Austin are too busy standing in bars listening to bands they probably don’t care for, some of the world’s most progressive and forward-thinking individuals in the performing arts are making history in our own city. The annual Fusebox Festival is the best place to experience some of the most dynamic and inspiring action in the contemporary scene. From avant garde food tastings and video installations to a talking artificial intelligence William Shatner—take that, ACL—the Fest no doubt has something that will satisfy anyone’s artistic palette. Fusebox wrangles vanguard talent from all corners of the globe, including Austin, into a two-week smorgasbord that offers a diversified spectrum of the contemporary performance and installation art scene. Below are some highlights of this massive event, giving you a peek into some of the engaging and provocative shows that the festival has to offer.
