There’s a good reason Vanity Fair called El Paso the “Best Little Music City in Texas.” That’s because whether you’re just here for the night, or thinking about making El Paso home, you’ll be sure to find shows here that’ll delight, inspire, unwind and entertain you.

At club venues like The Lowbrow Palace and Tricky Falls, you can catch performances from rising and established acts; think Green Day, The Chamanas, or Gary Clark Jr. At concert halls like the historic Plaza Theatre and Abraham Chavez Theatre you’ll find performances from big stars like Wilco, Natalia LaFourcade and The Killers. El Paso is also host to live music festivals that draw audiences from across the state and region. Festivalgoers take over the streets of downtown El Paso, the Coliseum Fairgrounds, the Convention Center Plaza and Ascarate Park to witness national and international acts, and discover acts they might never have seen elsewhere. Making the most of El Paso’s excellent weather and eager fans, these outdoor festivals have garnered national recognition and bring world-class talent to the city year in and year out.

The music festival offerings of the city are growing and proliferating with each passing year, and while there are options to meet every budget and interest, there are some notables that have managed to stick out among the crowd.
