Picture this: It’s a warm October day during Silobration weekend in Waco, Texas. You’ve shopped at the 50-tent vendor fair with artisans from around the country, hit a home run at Katy Ballpark, and strolled through the Shops at the Silos. Now, with an iced latte from Magnolia Press in-hand and the smell of cupcakes from Silos Baking Co. wafting through the air, you sit down on the lawn in front of the Silos to enjoy a relaxing afternoon of live music.
Sounds lovely, doesn’t it? That’s what’s waiting for you October 19-21 at Silobration. And in case you’re wondering what kind of music you’ll hear from the Silos stage, here’s an overview of who’s coming:
