BEVO BLVD. IS BACK AND BETTER THAN EVER!
Following the success of Bevo Blvd. and Longhorn City Limits, Texas Athletics announces the addition of Smokey’s Midway for the 2019 Texas Football season. Located on the north end of DKR-Texas Memorial Stadium along DeLoss Dodds Way, this fan experience is the perfect bridge connecting Bevo Blvd. presented by H-E-B and Longhorn City Limits presented by ATX Web Designs.
Smokey’s Midway features a variety of midway games with great prizes, interactive attractions, unique fair-style food, additional food trucks and beverage stations, and also provides fans access to The Frank Denius Family University of Texas Athletics Hall of Fame.
Bevo Blvd. presented by H-E-B, an action-filled pregame street party, opens five hours prior to kickoff with Texas-sized fun for Longhorns fans of all ages! The fun includes the Bevo XV Parade presented by Texas Farm Bureau Insurance, the Football team’s arrival at the Stadium Stampede, Longhorn Network’s Texas GameDay live broadcast, food trucks, craft beer barge, margarita van, giant LED screens, interactive games and inflatables, photo ops with Texas traditions, autographs with select teams and coaches, and exclusive merchandise from a variety of best-in-class brands.
Fans can also enjoy happy hour pricing on Bevo Blvd., Smokey’s Midway, and Longhorn City Limits including $5 16-oz. domestic beers, $6 16-oz. premium beers and $5 wine spritzers.

Texas Football gamedays are still the center of the “Live Music Capital of the World” with Longhorn City Limits presented by ATX Web Designs, the gameday concert series on the LBJ Lawn. This season, LCL sees the addition of the Deep Eddy Lounge, a brand new cocktail garden featuring unique Texas-themed drinks for fans 21+. In addition, fans have the opportunity to get photos with the new Longhorn City Limits oversized guitar monument and exclusive LCL merchandise at the Texas Longhorns Official Team Shop.
The Revolution, Prince’s former band, headlines Longhorn City Limits presented by ATX Web Designs on Saturday, Oct. 19 prior to the Texas Football vs. Kansas game. Wendy Melvoin, Lisa Coleman, Bobby Z, BrownMark and Dr. Fink make up the band behind music icon Prince. With the release of “Purple Rain,” the band rose to international fame and prominence in the mid 1980s. Following the tragic passing of Prince in April 2016, The Revolution reunited to honor their fearless leader and pay tribute by playing the music they created with him. Fans can expect to hear iconic hits such as “Let’s Go Crazy,” “Purple Rain,” “1999,” “Kiss” and “When Doves Cry.”
Rounding out the Oct. 19 lineup is Austin native Emily Wolfe. Wolfe released her self-titled album earlier this year which included the singles “Rules To Bend” and “Holy Roller.” Partnering with producer Ben Tanner who is also the keyboardist for Alabama Shakes, Wolfe creates a unique sound that integrates traditional blues/rock elements with modern synths and samples.
Longhorn City Limits is free and open to the public; lawn chair and picnic blanket friendly (no dogs, please); and no game ticket is required.
Bevo Blvd., Smokey’s Midway and Longhorn City Limits close 30 minutes prior to kickoff to allow fans with game tickets time to enter the stadium to see the Longhorn Band’s pregame performance.
Inside the stadium, Texas Athletics has added even more ‘fan first’ pricing on concessions. The 2018 menu featured lower prices on 10 total items, while the 2019 offering expands to include 22 of the most popular gameday concessions items at an average discount of 30%. The ‘fan first’ pricing allows a family of four to purchase a typical gameday meal for $28 or less.
