Live Music for Families: July 1-12, 2015


Austin is definitely a city that is filled with live music options for every taste. Whether you prefer 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 July Summer Fun Checklist for Kids is to listen to live music outdoors, we thought we'd compile a list of kid-friendly concerts happening so that you can find all of the information in one place. We've also thrown in some shows happening indoors, since it's always nice to take a little break from being outdoors. Please check the schedules before heading out for schedule changes and cancellations.
