Blues on the Green, the more than three-decade-old free summer music series, has been canceled for 2024.

In a social media post, Austin City Limits Radio said the event is growing increasingly more difficult to pay for, but hinted at the series returning in the future with additional support.

“Know that we know Blues on the Green is an important community institution,” the post read. “Know that we believe this is a hold-on, not goodbye.”

Until the beloved local event returns to Zilker Park, there are plenty of ways to take in free shows in the Live Music Capital of the World.

Although details for this year’s fests haven’t yet been announced, stay tuned for updates on these other annual free music events:
