Since we announced the inaugural Ramblin' Roads Music Festival, we've been sharing a TON of information with you about our complete line-up, our complete ticket package, and our completely unique festival experience.
But just like Downtown Arlington with all of its history, diversity and unique vibe, Ramblin' Roads isn't an all-your-eggs-in-one-basket kind of idea. Festival-goers are free to create the kind of experience that suits them. Because Ramblin' Roads concerts take place from 18 different stages, most within a short walk or trolley ride from one another, you can choose venues that reflects your style. Some stages are indoors and others are outside. Some venues seat hundreds; others seat dozens. You also have the freedom to choose a certain "track" of music -- such as Country or Latin or Indie -- or you can mix and match according to your taste and curiosity.
Let's take a closer look at just one of the genres within the Ramblin' Roads Music Festival: Country/Americana.
A Little Bit Country
If you know the history of Downtown Arlington, you know we're a little more than a little bit country at heart. Arlington Music Hall has a long and proud history as a career-maker of the likes of LeAnn Rimes, Lee Ann Womack, Shoji Tabuchi, Blake Shelton, Gary Morris, Box Car Willie, Wanda Jackson, hometown sensation Maren Morris, and many others. Levitt Pavilion Arlington also inspires with its eclectic mix of popular headliners and up-and-coming openers, including plenty to please country and Americana fans. Texas Live!, which opened in 2018 adjacent to the Texas Rangers' Globe Life Field, has already proven itself to be a premier entertainment destination for all kinds of musical genres and, as the only non-Downtown venue, an awesome addition to Ramblin' Roads.
How will you ever choose? We have no idea, but you sure will have fun trying. With your Ramblin' Roads Music Festival Three Day VIP or Three Day General Admission Pass, you can CHOOSE BETWEEN ALL OF THE CONCERTS LISTED BELOW. Whoa.
But wait! There's more! Do you like to mix a little Jazz or Latin with your Country music? Combine a little Rock or Indie with Americana? Your Three Day VIP or General Admission Pass is also good for the MORE THAN THIRTY OTHER CONCERTS throughout the weekend. Click here for our complete schedule.
