Austin, Texas

Dubbed the “Live Music Capital of the World,” Austin is home to several big-name festivals, such as SXSW, ACL, Fun Fun Fun Fest, and others.  Even without these music fairs, numerous bars and restaurants offer top-notch live performances.  The city is also considered as one of the best stopover cities for touring bands.

New York City, New York

The city is where musicians dream of headlining their own shows.  NYC features iconic venues, namely, Madison Square Garden, Bowery Ballroom, Webster Hall, and many others.  The New York music scene has quite a rich history, too, and it is continuing to grow to this day.

New Orleans, Louisiana

NOLA is jazz city.  Ingrained in its culture is the music genre that there is such a thing as “jazz funerals” in the city.  However, it is not only jazz that can be heard ringing anywhere in the city, other music forms, including blues and reggae, are hits in The Big Easy.

Nashville, Tennessee

Even as one has just arrived in the city, he can already get a taste of the “Nashville sound” as the Nashville International Airport sees around a hundred local bands play on the terminal’s four stages every year.
