The KTRU Outdoor Show is a yearly music festival put on by Rice University’s very own student radio station. Bringing in local acts, national acts, food trucks, student organizations, and various organizations around Houston, we strive to put on a damn good show for the whole city to enjoy.

KTRU is also excited to announce that the ODS will feature art from both student and local artists. Installations will include a breathing sculpture from Rice’s Matchbox gallery and Art and Engineering students, projection art and lights from local artist Flcn Fckr, works from students in the Moody Center, and more.

This is a free, all-ages event. Everyone is welcome to enjoy a great day full of great music.

This year’s show is on Saturday, April 22nd and begins at 2 p.m. and lasts until 9 p.m.
