Photography Jordan Geibel Pat Green FRIENDS & I t was built, and they came. After a year's worth of talking and three months to pull it off, the founders of the One Square Mile Round Top music festival call the first iteration an acoustic and finan- cial success. Hosted in the renovated Round Top Dance Hall on the grounds of the spruced-up Stone Cellar, music filled the air for four days in late April. Pat Green headlined the sold-out Saturday night in the music hall, and bands played nearly all day Saturday in the covered area just outside The 550 Market. The weather deity cooperated so that music lovers could sit in the sun or bask in the shade of giant oak trees, sipping cool beverages, or downing a beer. "When Pat's on, he's on, and that night he was full-throttle," says Brad Blacketer, director of operations at Marburger Farm, who was there with wife, Tracy. VIP ticket holders were treated to a meet-and-greet with Mr. Green pre-show and had privileged access to the private speak- easy The Mark throughout the weekend. Blue Water Highway, the no-longer-unknown folk rock band from Austin, blew away the near-ca- pacity crowd in the hall on Friday night. Just in: One Square Mile returns next spring. Save the dates: Thursday – Sunday, April 18 – 21, 2024, at The Stone Cellar and the historic Round Top Dance Hall in The 550 Market complex. Lineup to be announced this fall.
