Hot Luck is what happens at the fire—in the flames. It's where the inspiration turns into food. And that food feeds the people, and the music, and the next round of crazy ideas that flicker to life.
Created by James Beard Award-winner Aaron Franklin, Guerilla Suit principal and Mohawk owner James Moody, and Mike Thelin, co-founder of Feast Portland, it is a DIY casserole of the culinary and music world.
It is both a festival that occurs every Memorial Day weekend in Austin as well as a traveling series of events that pop up in cities all over the country year-round.
The 2019 lineup features Aaron, Matty Matheson, Alon Shaya, Gabriel Rucker, Jeremiah Stone, Sara Kramer & Sarah Hymanson, Chris Bianco, Chris Shepherd, Mason Hereford, Katie Button & more, with music by Lucero, Leftover Salmon, Archers of Loaf and others!
Hot Luck is proud to donate a portion of the festival’s proceeds to The SAFE Alliance. The SAFE Alliance is a merger of Austin Children’s Shelter and SafePlace, both long-standing and respected human service agencies in Austin serving the survivors of child abuse, sexual assault and exploitation, and domestic violence. Visit safeaustin.org to learn more about this amazing organization.
Hot Luck is proud to partner with Fairmont Austin - check out this custom Hot Luck package at the hotel when booking your stay.
