Austin, TX – The Revival Festival, Austin’s premiere rockabilly and Americana festival, has announced that the incredible Reverend Horton Heat will be the headliner for the festival’s 5th anniversary show. The Revival Festival will take place on Saturday, May 26th in downtown Austin.

“When I first had the idea for the festival in 2007, the first band I thought of was Reverend Horton Heat,” says Orlando Rios, Revival Festival Executive Producer and Founder. “They were the first band I ever saw live and they changed my life for the better. Fans always request them and we are always glad to have them. Last year saw record attendance and even a nod from Austin Mayor Lee Leffingwell with our own designated day.”

The following bands will join the Reverend Horton Heat in Austin: Nekromantix, Lee Rocker, Three Bad Jacks, Psycho Devilles, The Smites (Tribute to The Smiths), Rosie Flores, Holy Moly!, Johnny Hootrock, and the Hot Rod Hillbillies.
