June Summer Fun Checklist: Listen to Live Music Outdoors

Domain Austin

The lawn at Domain II

Summertime live music events can be fun for the whole family, and fortunately we have no shortage of them to choose from in Austin! One activity listed on our June Summer Fun Checklist for Kids is “Listen to live music outdoors,” so we thought we’d compile a list of (mostly free) concerts happening around town this month, so you can see your many options. Please check the links below for any potential scheduling changes before heading out.
