Ever wonder why Austin is known as the Live Music Capital of the World®? The slogan became official in 1991, after it was discovered that Austin had more live music venues per capita than anywhere else in the nation. Listen closely and you’ll hear the sounds of more than 1,900 bands and performing artists living in and around our city. From blues to indie rock, country to jazz, rock en español and more, Austin’s nearly 200 live music venues mean you can catch a show any day, at almost any time.

Austin is also home to some of the largest music events and festivals in the world, including South by Southwest (SXSW), Austin City Limits Music Festival (ACL), The Urban Music Festival, Fun Fun Fun Fest, the Pachange Festival and more.
