North America

  • Austin

    Known as the live music capital of the world, Austin is located in central Texas. Between the legendary music scene, amazing restaurants (serving up more than just Tex-Mex and barbeque), the burgeoning art scene, and the world-renown music festivals, Austin has become a go-to destination. With an average yearly temperature of 68°F (20°C), Austin is beautiful any time of year.

  • Los Angeles

    As the heart of the film and television industry in America, the L.A. music scene - while intensely popular - is sometimes overlooked. Diverse to the extreme, it can be overwhelming to navigate at times, but trust that there is something for everyone. Daily event listings show dozens - dare we say hundreds? - of music and other cultural events to suit anyone's taste.

  • Miami

    One of the most popular vacation spots in the country, Miami is a party city with tons of things to do and see. From rooftop bars and restaurants to concert halls, stadiums, zoos, museums, and miles of beaches, Miami has something for everyone

  • Nashville

    Known as "The Music City," Nashville is most famous for country music, but in recent years has become a haven for musicians of all genres and styles. Located in central Tennessee, Nashville's is the gateway to the state's most famous music festival, Bonnaroo, but we think it's worth a longer look. With an average high temperature around 70°F (21°C), Nashville is perfect in almost any season for exploration of its performing arts scene, burgeoning food culture, beautiful college campuses, and art centers.

  • New York City

    New York City, the largest city in the US, is widely considered the financial and cultural capital of the world, drawing more visitors than anywhere else in the nation. And for good reason; there really is no other city like it, especially for music. The world's most famous concert halls and dingy after-hours basement music venues all have a place in NYC.

  • Seattle

    We remember Seattle from the glory days of grunge, when Pearl Jam and Nirvana ruled the airwaves and MTV. With contemporary bands like Band of Horses, The Head and the Heart, and Fleet Foxes getting their start in the Emerald City, it's easy to see that the music scene is still as vital as ever.
