It's the time of the year again — festival time!
Specifically, we're just a day away from the start of Austin's annual South by Southwest festival.
And you know who we're most excited to see in the area?
For the 11th year in a row, in honor of her huge love for music, Rach is hosting her own Rachael Ray's Feedback event, three days of great music and equally fantastic food timed to the annual festival.
This year's lineup includes 32 artists, including the fierce Beatles cover band Dr. Pepper's Jaded Hearts Club Band (fronted by Muse's Matt Bellamy), Salt-N-Pepa, Girl Talk, Albert Hammond Jr, Hinds and Rachael's husband John's band The Cringe — and that's just the tip of the iceberg!
But the big event will take place on Saturday, March 17, where from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. she'll be the host as 14 bands perform at Stubb's BBQ.
There, everyone will get to try Rachael's Austin-inspired menu, with recipes that include:
— Frank n' "Refried" Beans (with roasted tomato salsa and pickled jalapeños)
— Pimento Cheese Dogs (topped with corn chip dust)
— Lil' Veg-Head Corn Dogs with Tomatillo Gazpacho Shooters
— Serious Three-Meat Sloppy Joes (get her recipe for Serious Three-Meat Chili here)
And it's ALL for free for guests of the event! As it's an independent event, you don't need to have a pass for SXSW, you just need to swing by!
Doesn't really get much better than that, right?
