It's going down in Tyler, TX! 101.5 KNUE, 107.3 KISSFM, MIX 93.1, Classic Rock 96.1, and Radio Texas, LIVE! with Buddy Logan, are proud to welcome another massive lineup for Rose City Music Festival '23, and tickets are officially on sale now.

We're the same people who bring you Red Dirt BBQ & Music Festival, and we continue that proud tradition with our second annual Rose City Music Festival. For this years show we are back on The Brick Streets, locked-in for October 14th.

Last October over 7,000 live music fans found their way to the inaugural Rose City Music Festival in Downtown Tyler for a full day of amazing local eats and an unforgettable night of entertainment, headlined by country-rocker Koe Wetzel and GRAMMY award winning rapper Nelly.

We're following that up this year by welcoming home East Texas' own Southern Rockers Whiskey Myers. This show will mark the first time these boys, who cut their teeth in and around Tyler, have returned to The Rose City since 2015. Eight years since they've been home, that's ludicrous.

And speaking of Ludacris, he's sold more than 24 million albums worldwide and is a blockbuster movie star. He's starred in the Fast and Furious franchise, Crash which received an Academy Award for Best Picture in 2006, Hustle & Flow which earned him a SAG Award, and many more.

Plus performances from Matt Koziol and DJ Shayne Payne.
