Fusebox virtual Edition

Welcome to Fusebox Festival 2020: Virtual Edition! April 24-26.

Now in its 16th year, Fusebox Festival is an annual contemporary art and performance festival that features adventurous local, national, and international artists. Our festival typically unfolds over the course of five action-packed days at venues and sites across Austin, but this year, due to current events, we’ve worked with our artists and partners to reimagine our festival as a virtual experience online.

Think public access TV meets international block party meets live performance!

Explore our virtual festival schedule below. We’ve got live performances, talks, workshops, studio visits, installations, cooking classes, our signature waffle chats (a lively conversation accompanied by delicious waffles), dance parties, stuff for kids, and more! Take a chance on an artist you know nothing about! Conspire with friends to “attend” — host a watch party!

We see this as a glorious experiment of what it means to gather together, and celebrate adventurous art, online. We hope to see you there.

How to Watch

Follow us on Youtube and Facebook, and tune in to watch starting April 24th at virtual.fuseboxfestival.com.

Check out THIS FUSEBOX VIRTUAL RESOURCE GUIDE for awesome recipes, zines, lyrics, playlists, and more, that are paired with many of the activities this weekend.

We are grateful to our sponsors whose support has made Fusebox Virtual possible!
