Fasten Fest 2017: Ride service offers free music festival with extra perks

AUSTIN - Sure, Uber and Lyft might have driven their way back into Austin city limits, but one ridesharing service is doling out free food, free drinks, free comedy and free music to its loyal customers.

#Winning.

To celebrate its first year in Austin, Fasten is holding Fasten Fest on June 17. Admission to the event, which is scheduled from 11 a.m. on Saturday to 1 a.m on Sunday at Fair Market on 1100 E. 5th St., is also 100 percent free.
