Summer Music in Austin

Austin Summer Music

Whether you are traveling into our city or lucky enough to live here all year long, Austin is the place to be for live music. We aren’t called the Live Music Capital of the World for nothing! Even though music is a huge part of our culture all year long, Austin’s live music scene is especially vibrant during the summer.

Check out some of the concert offerings for June. Are your weekends full, but you are looking for something to enjoy in the middle of the week? No problem! While some cities only offer concerts during peak weekend times, Austin venues can turn even a Wednesday night into a party night. 

The other piece of good news is that some of these concerts are absolutely free. This means you can spend your hard-earned dime on essential things like locally-made beer and Texas brisket.

Truly, one of the only disadvantages of living in Austin is our traffic. You may be pumped to attend one of these concerts, but you are frustrated at the idea of navigating through a bunch of crazy drivers, finding and paying for parking, and bribing a friend to be the designated driver. Don’t let this frustrating transportation situation stop you from living a good life. Contact R&R Limo and Bus for all your transportation needs.

You may think that the idea of showing up to a free Wednesday night concert in a limo is over the top, but it is much more economical than you would imagine. You know your group of friends would pitch in a few bucks to arrive at a concert in style. After all, you were all planning on paying for peak-hour ride shares anyway, weren’t you? When you book transportation through us, you can party together on the way to the concert. Isn’t getting there half the fun?

So that you know, our professional drivers have other cars available to them as well. We can pick your small party up in a luxury sedan, or we can transport you and twelve of your best friends in our Mercedes Sprinter vans. Our drivers will get you as close to the venue as possible and will be there waiting for you at the end of the evening.

Here are some of the concerts you may want to enjoy this month.

Austin Symphony Concerts in the Park

Enjoy the 17th season of the Austin Symphony Hartman Foundation Concerts in the Park. These classical musicians will perform in front of the Long Center at the Hartman Concert Park. Enjoy the strings, woodwinds, and brass instrumentalists as they perform classical and big band pieces. The concerts begin at 7:30 every Sunday night. Check out their website for more details.

Black Fret Summer Sessions

The Long Center is home to another concert series this summer, this time on Friday nights. Enjoy as the Black Fret & Long Center present this new summer music series on select Fridays through September. The Black Fret Summer Sessions celebrate Austin’s local musicians. Local food and drink will be available for purchase on the Long Center lawn.

Blues on the Green

If you are traveling into Austin this summer, you need to attend at least one event at our fabulous Zilker Park. Why not check out the website to see if any of the Wednesday concerts will work for you? Bring a blanket large enough to hold the whole family and enjoy performances by some of Austin’s best local blues bands. Blues on the Green is a summertime tradition you won’t want to miss!

Sound & Cinema

If blues isn’t your thing, you can find something else to do on Wednesdays throughout the summer. Do512 and Alamo Drafthouse have teamed up to pair local live music with a classic movie to follow. This one-of-a-kind event, called Sound & Cinema, is staged at the Long Center. Food and beverages can be purchased on-site from food trailers parked outside the venue.

Unplugged at the Grove

Shady Grove and Austin City Limits Radio team up to present Unplugged at the Grove every Thursday at 8 p.m. This free event showcases local musicians. Bring a few local beers and a hardy sandwich or two to enjoy during the show.

Listening to music under a starlit sky or at a classic Austin venue is a great way to spend your weeknights during the summer. Make your time, even more, relaxing by reaching out to R&R Limo and Bus to take care of your transportation needs.
