The 8th-annual Latin music awards show Premios Texas will be held this Thursday, August 2nd at ACL Live. The ceremony recognizes musicians in popular Latin music categories such as pop, rock, urban, regional Mexican and tejano. A hallmark of the show is the Lifetime Achievement Award bestowed on an artist who has made great contributions to Latin music culture.
Each year, the awards ceremony brings honorees and celebrants from North, Central and South America to Austin. In 2005, a crowd of 200 spectators attended the inaugural Premios Texas at One World Theatre. The show has grown to attract thousands to the “Live Music Capital of the World.”
Tickets to Premios Texas can be purchased online through ACL Live and more information can be found through the venue’s website. ACL Live is located two blocks west of The Austonian and often hosts popular music tours and special performances.
