Announcing The First Round of Bands at This Year's Homegrown Festival

For the past two springs, Dallas residents have flocked to downtown's Main Street Garden Park to celebrate the city's impressive array of local talent at the Homegrown Music and Arts Festival.

And even after hosting acts such as Neon Indian, Astronautalis and Jonathan Tyler & The Northern Lights in previous years, this year's fest promises to improve on that impressive company. This May, Homegrown will expand its embrace to include bands from all over Texas — and not just bands with DFW proper ties, as it has in the past.

Judging from the first batch of confirms, the fest will definitely have a much different look when it returns for its third go-'round Saturday, May 26. In addition to previously announced San Antonio chick-rockers Girl in a Coma, festival organizers John Solis and Josh Florence have confirmed that Austin heavy-rock trio UME, audio-visual wonders Octopus Project and Dallas' Mystery Skulls are also set to join this year's lineup. It's a strong-to-quite-strong start to what will eventually grow to include around a dozen of the state's top acts.

Homegrown Music and Arts Festival music lineup to date:
Octopus Project
Girl in a Coma
