In Austin – the Live Music Capital of the World – you can’t spit without hitting a Grammy winner.
And you can hear great music just about everywhere you go. Including at the airport.
Austin-Bergstrom International Airport offers 23 live music events each week, but next week that number spikes to 28 thanks to the addition of five special performances taking placing during the 8th Annual Kid Band Week.
