Outside the City Limits Festival

A Celebration of Local Music, Beer, Food and the Outdoors!

Saturday, September 21

OCL is one-day festival featuring a great lineup of local Texas bands at Vista Brewing’s beautiful 21-acre ranch in Driftwood, just 25 miles southwest of Austin and 1.5 hours north of San Antonio in the Texas Hill Country.

Enjoy fresh air, great tunes and Vista’s award-winning beers, farm-fresh food and the Texas Wine & Cider Garden.  The festival is family & dog friendly.

OCL features non-stop live and local music from 1 – 9 PM with an outstanding lineup of local Austin talent playing Americana, funk, blues, rock, indie folk, bluegrass and country. Under the backdrop of a 350-year-old live oak on the OCL Main Stage, festival goers can enjoy shows from Greyhounds, Star Parks and  Warm Sugar.  The festival showcases a 100% solar-powered stage sponsored by Cam Solar, featuring Batty Jr.Beth Chrisman & Jenn Hodges (of The Frauleins & Carper Family Band) and Steel Betty..  Schedule and additional acts to be announced. Doors open at noon.

In addition to live music at the event, Vista’s award-winning brews and farm table food will be served all day.  Vista will also be offering limited-release 12-oz cans of its popular Adair Kölsch and Dark Skies Black Pilsner, courtesy of American Canning, with a complimentary koozie (while supplies last).

On the menu are items from Vista’s onsite organic farm, including a locally sourced Cheeseburger on house-made brioche, Pulled Pork Sandwich with Pepper Slaw and Grilled Veggie Burrito with Jalapeno Basil Pesto, among other farm-to-table items.  Options for your sweet tooth include Beer Donuts with Vista Honey and artisan popsicles from OddPop ATX.

The festival will once again feature a Texas Wine & Cider Garden, with local producers Lewis Wines and Texas Keeper Cider sampling their products, which are also available for purchase by the glass.

Stroll Vista’s property, browse a pop-up vintage market, grab a popsicle from Odd Pop, play a game of cornhole and more!

The VIP Lounge includes a stage-side seating area, private bar and complimentary non-alcoholic beverages including Pura Coco coconut water. VIP Pass holders also receive priority parking, express entry and a unique swag bag, including a YETI Rambler. VIP passes are very limited, so get your tickets early.
