X Games Austin 2015 Dishes Another Solid Music Bill

2015 Billboard Music Awards - Show

X-Games Austin 2015 kicks off Thursday, June 4 and for the second straight year the ESPN event will be offering free concerts (Editor’s note: all concerts must accompany an ‘X Games Experience ticket’) surrounding the games being hosted in the live music capital of the world.

Last year had a wide variety of acts, including Bad Religion, The Flaming Lips and Kanye West. Of course it depends on who you talk to, but the new music schedule for 2015 appears to be just as strong judging by the popular talent that has been booked.

Along with punk rock legendary staple Pennywise, X Games Austin is also brining in Metallica for the heavy rockers and Nicki Minaj for the hip-hop lovers.
