Hot Luck returns Memorial Day Weekend (May 23-26) in 2024. The all-in Whole Enchilada ticket package is highly recommended for the most complete experience. This is the best value, y'all – a $715 value for $495 – a small amount of discounted passes for a limited amount of time only. Ticket price includes all music, bites and beverages (21+ only for adult beverages) at the event.

With this pass, you'll get early access to the main food events, entry into every music show and guaranteed access to our industry kickoff on Thursday night. We’re excited to bring back the popular Family pack where kids under 12 get in free with purchase of two adult Whole Enchilada passes. We also have special pricing for youngsters (ages 13-20), and kids (under 12) if the Whole Enchilada pass is purchased a la carte. Chef and music talent info will be announced in early 2024 when individual tickets will also go on sale and Whole Enchilada passes will be available at regular pricing.

Package Includes


There is no other festival quite like Hot Luck, where groundbreaking and genre-bending chefs from across the country—both emerging and established—set the stage for a weekend of live food and music events in dramatic, unforgettable environments. Venues mosey gracefully from downtown concert halls to green grove farms beyond the city limits, offering a varied and unique set of experiences along the way. Here’s where industry friendships and relationships are forged, and original, astonishing food is served nightly by restaurant teams from across the country to guests from around the world.

Hot Luck is a hungry love letter to the city of Austin, launched in 2017 in collaboration with world-class food, music, and cultural scenes and the brainchild of pitmaster and author Aaron Franklin of Franklin Barbecue; Guerilla Suit/Mohawk owner and man about town James Moody, and Feast Portland co-founder and food writer and food festival guy Mike Thelin. Hot Luck is proud to benefit the Southern Smoke Foundation.
