Live Music in Austin

Get to Know the Live Music Capital of the World

First-time visitors might be surprised to find themselves being entertained with live music as they walk through the terminal at Austin's airport after deplaning. But they shouldn't be. Live music, and music in many other forms, is everywhere in Austin. Musicians play everywhere from the airport terminal to grocery stores. They play outdoors at seasonal live music series and at world-famous festivals. Nightly, you'll find Austin musicians at clubs, coffeehouses, bars, taquerias, sporting events, and concert halls - and with more than 250 live music venues, it can be intimidating knowing where to start.
