Justin McClure of Kerrville-based radio station 103.7 FM The Buck will emcee, and performances will run 11 a.m. to midnight with one scheduled every hour.

Vendors, food trucks and family friendly activities will also be part of the event, according to the promoters. Organizers will donate a portion of festival proceeds to the McCollum High School music department.
