Austin is known as the Live Music Capital of the World®. We’re home to more than 250 music venues, and countless famous artists. Take a stroll down Second Street to the touted Austin City Limits, or along South Congress Avenue to the intimate Continental Club.
Summer in Austin brings plenty of free outdoor music concert series, such as Blues on the Green and Unplugged at the Grove. To cool off, visit the Austin Ice Cream Festival or take a dive into Barton Springs, a 68-degree swimming hole. And, as the sun goes down, watch millions of bats take flight from the Congress Avenue Bridge.
Regardless of whether you’re coming to experience Austin’s vibrant entertainment and culture, our tantalizing culinary delights, or outdoors, you’ll quickly discover Austin features its own unique soundtrack.
