Get Ready To ROLLOUT To The Brick Streets Of Tyler For The Party Of The Year!

We're super excited to invite ALL of East Texas and beyond back out to The Square in downtown Tyler for the biggest party of the year for ALL of East Texas!

101.5 KNUE, 107.3 KISSFM, MIX 93.1, Classic Rock 96.1, and Radio Texas, LIVE! with Buddy Logan, are proud to welcome another massive and eclectic lineup to Tyler, TX for Rose City Music Festival '23!

Our Co-Headliner Is Hip Hop Icon LUDACRIS!

The career of the multitalented CHRIS “LUDACRIS” BRIDGES can best be described as remarkable. As a recording artist, he has sold more than 24 million albums worldwide, thanks to the blockbuster success of such singles as “Stand Up,” “Get Back,” “Southern Hospitality,” “Number One Spot,” “Money Maker” and “My Chick Bad.” All of these records were accompanied by ingenious videos that demonstrated Bridges’ far-reaching imagination, and his willingness to stretch the boundaries of what rap videos should look and feel like.

For this years show we are back on The Brick Streets and locked-in for October 14th.

His versatility and artistic complexity also enabled him to make a seamless transition to acting, including the fan favorite role of "Tej" in Universal Pictures’ box office phenomenon Fast & Furious franchise where he was introduced for the first time in 2003 in 2 Fast 2 Furious. He reprised his role of “Tej” for the seventh time in Fast X which was released earlier this year.

East Texas' own Southern Rockers Whiskey Myers Will Also Co-Headline!
