The festival has traditionally been a two day event, but beginning in 2010, it's expanding to include Friday afternoon and evening music and activities.
Some other administrative details:
Some of the proceeds of the festival goes to support the Capital Area Food Bank. In 2009, the festival provided the equivalent of several hundred thousands of meals for those in need in the Central Texas area.
Due to the festival's increasing popularity and attendance, dogs are no longer allowed, which is a shame considering that after the blues, reggae is the most popular musical choice among canines.
Outside food and beverages are not allowed. I'm confident that you can still sneak in what you need to sneak in, but there will still be plenty of choice food vendors available. Per festival guidelines: "Each patron is allowed to bring in one sealed container of bottled water. The size of this container is up to you."
ATMs will be available.
Feel free to bring a tent, but the tent area is limited, so you'll need to be plan accordingly.
For those interested in being vendors for the Austin Raggae Festival, there's a contact email at the bottom of the festival website's FAQ section.
