Austin musicians are tuning up for #JetStreamFest, a virtual summer music festival hosted by Austin artist Jackie Venson and held at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport on Wednesday, Aug. 19, on Facebook Live. Twelve other North American airports will participate in the free livestreamed event, which features performances by local musicians representing each participating city. Austin airport CEO Jacqueline Yaft said in a news release announcing the event, “Summer is a time typically full of music festivals and live events, especially in Austin, where millions of travelers from across the globe visit our city to experience what makes us the Live Music Capital of the World. While Covid-19 has forced us to adapt to new changes both in our community and nationwide, we are thrilled that airports across the country are joining us to bring even more live music direct to audiences’ living rooms.” The event kicks off at 5 p.m. on each participating airport’s Facebook Live. See a full lineup of musicians on the Facebook event page. Viewers may tip musicians if they wish, using a virtual tip jar.
