Texas Governor Greg Abbott today once again issued orders affecting bars and restaurants. Fortunately, they will not affect the KLAQ Backyard Bash.

Now that the bars are closed, feel free to load up on food to grill, drinks, and invite some friends over for the KLAQ Backyard Bash.

The pandemic shut the touring industry down so, no bands have come to see us lately leading KLAQ to do the next best thing and bring them to you.

It's a fantasy festival featuring live sets from some of your favorite bands like The Pretty Reckless, Godsmack, Ozzy, Three Days Grace, Bush and more. The headliners will be Metallica in a recreation of the set they did here at the Don Haskins Center in February of 2019. In fact, with the exception of one song, it IS the set they performed here back in February!

You can win some cool prizes during this imaginary concert too, click here for more details. It's the greatest festival you could ever imagine, and your imagination will come in handy so, start warming it up.

It's sort of like the WWF, you know it's fake but you still enjoy it, right? Same here!

Invite some friends over, fire up the grill, crack open some cold ones, and pretend you're at an amazing festival. Crank it up loud and enjoy (for once) an outdoor concert where you have plenty of room between you and the other attendees. No bathroom lines. No ridiculous parking fees, and food and drinks you don't have to take a loan out to enjoy.

It's Saturday, from 3 pm-midnight, live and commercial-free on-air, online, and on your smart speakers.
