Independent music venues are home to the hopes and dreams of many performers and promoters. These are the stages that have given many their start, and even sometimes the stage where artists become world-recognized. We have compiled a list of 50 independent music venues and have broken them down into their different geographical locations. We tried to include a unique venue from every state. From a small seated church to a large outdoor venue, you'll find something that will work for your next event here in this list.

According to We Are Social, in 2020 3.8 billion people spent 2 hours and 24 minutes on average per day on social media. That is a whole lot of people spending a lot of time checking their social media accounts.
Safety needs to be your #1 priority in planning a music festival We don’t need to tell you how important safety is for large gatherings. Unfortunately, live music festivals have had security breaches and even tragedies, like the shooting at Route 91 Harvest in Nevada. The lives lost can never be replaced, and this is why event planners must prioritize music festival safety above anything else.
Why the volunteer team is the backbone of your music festival When you start to staff your music festival, don’t underestimate the power of a volunteer team. Your volunteers are people who want to be part of your experience, and they’re willing to give their free time in exchange for access to the festival. Through this harmonious exchange, you’ll be able to provide opportunities to others while increasing your ROI. Not to mention, you could be encouraging some valuable team members for the future!
