Pros and Cons of Concert Venues in Austin

Austin is arguably one of the best places in Texas to host a live music performance, but there are a few drawbacks to keep in mind.

Advantages

  • The Music Scene

Austin’s music scene is pulsing, to say the least, with world-renowned festivals taking place throughout the year and live music events almost every night of the week. This means you’ve already got engaged audiences at your fingertips and tourists looking to attend live concerts.

  • Diversity of people

Austin’s increasing ethnic diversity is a “plus” when it comes to hosting cultural music events and concerts that might not always appeal to a more homogenous population.

  • Outstanding venues

Because of its exceptional live music scene, Austin has an abundance of concert venues that are equipped and ready to go, as well as more eclectic spaces for you to add your creative touch.

  • Experienced crew

A buzzing live music scene means you’ve got experienced crew waiting in the wings, from sound engineers to stage managers and bar staff.

  • Favorable weather

Austin experiences around 300 sunny days each year, with its favorable climate drawing many residents to the city and making it ideal for hosting outdoor concerts and festivals.

Disadvantages

  • Traffic is terrible

With the city’s rapidly increasing population and a heavy dependence on cars, traffic in Austin can be an issue. That being said, public transport infrastructure is improving in the city, with an extensive bus and light rail network.

  • Property prices are high

Austin has a flourishing real estate market, which means that property prices are relatively high, and venue rentals may be more than if you looked elsewhere in Texas.

  • Summers can be scorching

Texas gets incredibly hot in summer, and Austin is no exception. Hosting an outdoor event at the height of summer might not be the best idea, and air-conditioning is a “must” for indoor concerts.

  • The mosquitoes can be fierce

There’s no denying it - the bugs and mosquitoes can be unbearable at times in Austin, which doesn’t always bear well for outdoor gigs.

  • Competition

With so many live music events taking place in Austin, you’ll have to get your marketing right to ensure you attract a crowd and can compete with other venues.
