San Antonio, TX – Sunday, April 23rd is the date set for the Annual Fredstock Music Festival to be held at San Antonio College (SAC). The music festival is a chance for Music Business students to get hands-on learning of every aspect of putting together a music showcase. Festival organizer Donnie Meals, who is also the Music Business Program Coordinator and faculty at SAC, says, “Fredstock is hands-on training. It’s part of the process that our students will be doing out there in the industry.” The students get to perform music business roles from booking the bands and vendors to preparing stage logistics and creating festival promotions.
Every annual festival brings in an array of music fans to hear different performing bands and walk through the sponsored booths of art and crafts, community business sponsors, vendors and food trucks. Headlining this year are the barrio blasters themselves, Bombasta. Also slated to perform are Mitch Webb and The Swindles, Bob Charles, Austin Forest and San Antonio favorites, Los #3 Dinners.. Music starts at 12:30 and the event will run until 8:00PM. It will be held on the San Antonio College campus at the Longwith Radio-TV-Film Bldg. in the parking lot at the corner of Courtland Place & N. Main Avenue.
Fredstock 2017 is also simulcast in its entirety on KSYM 90.1 FM.

Fredstock is named for Fred Weiss, who headed the Music Business Program at San Antonio College (SAC). A professor in the Radio/TV/Film program at SAC for more than 20 years, Weiss passed away in 2008. Money raised from Fredstock will directly benefit the Music Business Program.
SAC Music Business students learn every aspect of putting together a music showcase. The MUSB students see direct results from the work they have done. Music Business Program classes; including Live Sound for the Entertainment Industry, Live Music and Talent Management, Audio Production 3, Legal Aspects in the Entertainment Industry, Music Publishing, and Survey of the Music Business, all work together to learn hands-on and how-to skills to produce a successful community-wide music festival.
