Created by Transmission Events co-founder Graham Williams, Free Week began over 10 years ago as a way to bring music fans into venues during a week that was traditionally slower for clubs. While a booker at Emo’s in 2003, Williams booked local bands to kick off the beginning of the year, and the concept has since grown to become a beloved cultural event in Austin. The lineup for Free Week 2016 has over 125 local and touring bands playing at two venues in the Red River Cultural District. Free Week 2016 is the first time Transmission Events has teamed up with The New Movement comedy theatre—a frequent collaborator on booking Fun Fun Fun Fest— to bring free comedy shows to fans.
