Feedback 2014: That’s a Wrap!

Feedback is Rachael Ray and John Cusimano’s signature festival celebrating the two things they love most – music and food – in a city they love, Austin! 

Feedback 2014 was a whirlwind: Thousands of attendees, 34 talented acts, and more delicious food and drinks than we can count. Without everyone involved, this year would not have been so wonderful!

First and foremost, to every person who came and celebrated with Rachael and John – thank you! Thank you for your time and patience while you waited in the rain or stood in line. Thank you for your energy and positivity – for dancing, eating, singing, and your general joy! We loved all your photos and updates via #RRFeedback, and we can’t wait to see you next year!

Of course, our incredible venues, Stubb’s BBQ and The Chick Ranch, were gracious and helpful hosts.

And last, but certainly not least, thank you to the City of Austin for being our Feedback home away from home! You are one of Rachael’s favorite destinations, and for very good reason: Your hospitality is second-to-none.

See you next year!
