The Midwest Music Foundation proudly presented the fifth annual MidCoast Takeover, March 12th – 15th, 2014 at Shangri-La (1016 E. 6th Street, Austin, TX 78702). This event featured four days of music, mayhem, and general debauchery — the definitive Midwestern musical throw down showcasing bands from Kansas City, Lawrence, the Midwest, and beyond on a national stage.
The 2014 MidCoast Takeover couldn’t have gone over any better. Over the four days of the showcase, we had close to 60 different artists featured on the main stage and 40+ performers on the inside acoustic stage. All four day-parties were well attended and every night after 6PM Shangri-La was a packed house. We got so many great compliments from those who attended and the music from the midwest showcased well in Austin, TX. do512.com had us listed as one of the Top Things to Do for Wednesday and Saturday. KVUE had us listed as one of the best free shows in Austin. We also got some nice reviews from USA Today, The Kansas City Star, and Deli Magazine. Check out the Video, Photos, and Press pages for highlights from this year’s Takeover.
