August 2015 Family-Friendly Music Roundup

livemusic

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. 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. Please check the links before heading out for schedule changes and cancellations.

About Nicole Basham 793 Articles
A native Austinite and soccer-playing mom, Nicole uses her 10-year-old son as an excuse to rediscover her hometown through his eyes. In Thoreau's words, her mission is to "suck out all the marrow of life", or in her son's words, to cultivate in him a love of "advenchers".
