About Austin

Located in the central portion of the great state of Texas, you will find the thriving oasis of Austin. Known for its art and culture, as well as its amazing food, Austin has quickly become a sought-after destination. The weather is extremely hot in the summertime, but that is pretty typical for the Texas climate and encourages attendance to lots of indoor activities such as live performances.

There are many factors that make choosing a performance space in Austin a fantastic idea including its liberal-leaning values, its strong focus on the arts, and its welcoming atmosphere. Whether your performance is geared towards a small gathering or for 10,000 people, Austin could be the perfect place to host the event.

Performance Space Options in Austin

Finding the right performance space in Austin can be a lot of fun. Check out some of these essentials you are going to need to get your project off to a good start.

  • Lighting
    Floodlights, ERS, follow spots, and fresnels are just a few of the many different types of stage lights you may need for your performance. When it comes to lighting, there is a lot to learn, but with nearby equipment rental stores and the vast informational hub of the internet, you should have enough help to at least get you started.

  • Sound
    Top-notch sound equipment will definitely bring your Austin presentation to the next level. Go with a good quality microphone and a professional amplifier, or take a more sleek route and go with wireless Bluetooth. Make sure speakers are well placed so everyone at the event can hear and understand everything clearly.

  • Stage
    There must be a stage. You may not need an elevated grandiose stage, but there needs to be someplace that is clearly marked where the attendees can focus their attention. All of the seating must be facing the stage and it should be large enough to fit the performance space comfortably.

  • Seating
    Get the right amount of seating. Having too many chairs can leave people feeling cramped while too many will be inadequate, with people standing in the aisles. Make sure they are comfortable and appropriate styles for the show.

Performance Space Companies in Austin

  • Texas Party Rentals
    If supporting family-owned businesses is important to you, consider Texas Party Rentals for your seating and furniture rentals. These folks are reliable and have a long history of great customer care and good-quality furniture. Whether it is dishes, tables, chairs, or linens, Texas Party Rentals has it all.

  • Olden Lighting
    For over 30 years, Olden Lighting has supplied Texas with professional lighting and rigging for their performances. Whether your Austin performance is a small gathering or a major function, the appropriate equipment can be found at Olden Lighting.

  • Big House Sound
    Microphones, monitors, and cords as well as amplifiers, speakers, and soundboards. Whatever you need to sound your best, Big House Sound has it or can get it for you. They have a large selection at reasonable prices for your performance space in Austin.

Pros and Cons of Performance Spaces in Austin

Starting a performance space in Austin has its pros and cons. Here are a few of them to consider as you continue to research your project in this beautiful Texas city.


  • Friendly folks in Austin
    Texas is an enormous state, filled with some amazing people, but it can be argued that some of the friendliest live in Austin. These locals are famous for their southern hospitality and open arms.

  • Tons of outdoor activities
    An active lifestyle helps energize people to do more things. You will have a hard time getting lethargic in Austin, particularly if you enjoy outdoor activities. If the hiking trails, canoeing, and bike trails in Austin aren’t enough, there are plenty more within a short drive.

  • Lots of sunshine
    With hundreds of days of sunshine a year, Austin weather tends to encourage folks to go out and enjoy the day, likely making your Austin performance attendance higher.


  • Traffic is pretty bad
    Best to factor traffic time into your commute. You don’t want to miss the show because you are stuck behind a line of vehicles, which is likely to happen.

  • The city is shut down on game day
    Don’t plan your performance on the same day as a football game. When the University of Texas Longhorns play, the entire town is there and likely won’t be at your show.

  • Heat is dreadful
    Good luck staying comfortable enough to enjoy an outdoor performance with this heat. In the harshest parts of the year, the heat is difficult to bear so stay indoors.

Famous Locations in Austin

  • Live Music and BBQ on Rainey Street
    Get your cowboy boots on and head on over to Rainey Street for some fun! Much like the famous Sixth Street, Rainey is littered with tons of great live music, hopping bars, and some of the best barbecue in the state. It is hard to pass up an authentic Texas experience like this.

  • Frida Fridays
    Two-time winners of the Austin Chronicle Critics Choice Best of Awards, Frida Fridays is a monthly women-of-color, Latin craft fair that supports BIPOC (black, indigenous, and people of color) you surely do not want to miss. These local artists gather every month to host events, sell homemade art, and celebrate their culture.

  • Austin Vino Experience
    Who says wine is just a California thing? Texas has some fantastic vineyards, and they are open to giving you the full experience. Try out the gooey art of grape stomping, enjoy gorgeous vineyard tours, and delve into a good wine tasting on this wine country getaway.
