Austin, TX - The Revival Festival, Austin's premiere rockabilly and Americana festival, is now less than a month away, with the incredible Reverend Horton Heat as the headliner for the festival’s 5th anniversary show. The Revival Festival will take place on Saturday, May 26th in downtown Austin, Texas.
This one, however, is for the sponsors: The cool sponsors who make The Revival Festival even possible.
“Gretsch Guitars has been a sponsor since the very first festival five years ago,” says Orlando Rios, Revival Festival Executive Producer and Founder. “Based on the past success, Pabst Blue Ribbon and Sailor Jerry's have come on board, again, for a second year. I can’t imagine three more incredible brands that highlight what the rockabilly music scene is all about. They all fit perfectly for Revival, and we are honored to have them on board.”
"The Revival Festival is one of the most iconic events within the Rockabilly scene,” says Woody Coheley, Pabst Sr. Field Marketing Manager “PBR has always valued the tremendous support and loyalty from the community as they continue to help shape the success of our brand through the years."
"Sailor Jerry is proud to sponsor Revival Fest 2012 for the 2nd year in a row,” says Jacob Detten, Sailor Jerry Marketing Rep. “Listening to these musical pioneers and legends is about as original as a Norman Collins’ bold designs and 92 proof rum."
The Reverend Horton Heat will be joined in Austin by the Nekromantix, Lee Rocker, Three Bad Jacks, Psycho Devilles, The Smites (Tribute to The Smiths), Rosie Flores, Holy Moly!, Johnny Hootrock, and the Hot Rod Hillbillies.
