By Craig Burke, stage coordinator
We’ve finally got the performer stage hammered out and the schedule is ready! We are really excited about the selection this year as we feel it represents the type of individuals and groups who not only consider themselves musicians, but also makers. Many of these makers not only make music, but also build robots, make sculptures, compose ear movie musicals, turn themselves into the undead, as well as create and hack instruments. Look for the Performer stage on Saturday, May 3rd and prepare to to witness soundscapes, robots playing drums, chiptune, zombies playing horns and more.
Something new this year! We will have a Maker store with lots of fun stuff for sale. Arduinos, solar-powered grasshoppers, soldering kits, Make magazines, and all sorts of awesome Austin Mini Maker Faire T-shirts, bags, and stickers for your purchasing pleasure. Bring some Making home with you from the Maker Faire on May 3!
Dalek Storm, K9, and a weeping angel will be at the Faire this year! Saturday May 3 at the Travis County Expo Center… buy your tickets now!
