Are you ready, Tyler, TX!? 101.5 KNUE, 107.3 KISSFM, MIX 93.1, Classic Rock 96.1, and Radio Texas, LIVE! with Buddy Logan, are proud to welcome another massive and eclectic lineup to The Brick Streets.

From the same people who have brought you Red Dirt BBQ & Music Festival for a decade; we continue that proud tradition with our second annual Rose City Music Festival. We are back on The Brick Streets for 2023, locked-in for October 14th.

We're following '22 by welcoming home East Texas' own Southern Rockers Whiskey Myers. This show will mark the first time the boys, who cut their teeth in and around Tyler, have returned to The Rose City since 2015. Eight years since they've been home, that's ludicrous.

And speaking of Ludacris, he's sold more than 24 million albums worldwide and is a blockbuster movie star. He's starred in the Fast and Furious franchise, Crash which received an Academy Award for Best Picture in 2006, Hustle & Flow which earned him a SAG Award, and many more.

Plus performances from Matt Koziol and DJ Shayne Payne.

A big thanks to our presenting sponsor Peters Autosports. Plus: Altra Federal Credit Union, Rose City Air, Yosemite Roofing, Cavender’s, and Woody’s Accessories.
