Live Music for Families in June

June Checklist Item: Listen to Live Music Outdoors

Austin is definitely a city that is filled with live music options for every taste. Whether your preference favors country, rap, rock, hip-hop, classical or indie, chances are you'll find it in this city. It's also a perfect city to live in for parents who want to share their love of music with their kids.


This summer, there is no shortage of live music events that also happen to be family-friendly. Since one item on the June Summer Fun Checklist for Kids is to listen to live music outdoors, we thought we'd compile a list of kid-friendly concerts happening (mostly all outdoors) so that you can find all of the information in one handy place.
