The March Madness Music Festival is probably one of the best and loudest 72 hours of just music. The Music Festival takes place right in the middle of San Antonio Texas at Hemisfair. This year’s March Madness Music Festival will take place from the 30th of March until the 1st of April. Pack your backpack and everything you need for the music festival you can’t miss.
The March Madness Music Festival is brought to us by the NCAA Corporate Champions and Partners. The music festival usually begins in the late afternoon and will continue without stopping into the night.
Probably the best part of the March Madness Music Festival is that it’s free and everyone of all ages is welcomed to join. There have been many well-known artists in the past such as The Chainsmokers, Aerosmith, Maroon 5, Fergie, Imagine Dragons, Rihanna, Kings of Leon and many more.
Where can you watch March Madness Music Festival?
It is no official yet if the March Madness Music Festival will be brought in the homes of the people who will not be able to go to San Antonio. However, if there are rumors that the entire Music Festival will be streamed Live on the NCAA official Website as well as the NCAA March Madness Live app or you can get this link in more ways.
