Mayor Schedules Public Meeting on April 11 with Festival Producers
C3 Presents, an entertainment group based in Austin, is planning a large-scale festival to take place on a private ranch north of Marfa in spring 2020. C3 Presents is the producer behind Austin City Limits, Lollapalooza, and other live concerts and events. The group says they want to make the festival an annual event and hope to bring 5,000 attendees the first year.
“Citizens in Marfa and throughout the tri-county area have expressed their concern to council members and to me about the impact the event will have on the town’s residents, city infrastructure, emergency services, and the land,” said Mayor Ann Marie Nafziger. The mayor invited the founder of C3, Charles Attal, to a public meeting to answer these and other questions and concerns. “Mr. Attal agreed to come to Marfa with his team in April to meet with community members in a public forum,” she said.
The meeting will be held on Thursday, April 11 at 6:00 pm at the USO Building/Visitor Center located at 302 South Highland Avenue in Marfa. Mr. Attal has told the mayor he will make a presentation and answer questions from the public during the meeting.
