Located in Nashville, Indiana, the Brown County Music Center will be a visual and auditory masterpiece with cutting edge design that will bring in nationally known performers and host local events. The new venue will offer an incredibly intimate experience for each show. The farthest seat from the stage will only be 106 feet away.
Dana Beth Evans, the Director of Events for the new venue said, “This is an incredibly exciting time for Brown County and you can feel the anticipation growing as we get closer and closer to opening day. We’ve all put an incredible amount of time and effort into this place to make sure that it is nothing short of amazing for all who attend, including the artists. We hope people are able to take in all the beauty of the venue, the nature around it and the love and care of the people in this community when they visit us.”
The Brown County Board of Directors have banded together to make sure that the Brown County Music Center is both an incredible destination for music lovers and also a central part of its community. The commitment to its community has been shown by making plans to locally source and display local works of art, highlight local restaurants and breweries as part of their concessions, and have partnered with the local Live Nation office based in Indianapolis to book all national touring artists.
“We are thrilled to be part of the Brown County Music Center and their team to bring some of the best national touring artists into Nashville, Indiana.” said Dan Kemer, Live Nation’s VP of Midwest who will be responsible for booking the venue. “Brown County is already a great arts destination, and the music center is the next logical step as the Nashville market and tourism business continue to grow.”
Regional and local performances will be mixed in with the Live Nation booked events to keep the venue’s schedule full of great entertainment. The Brown County Music Center will also be available for rent for community related activities and special events on non-concert days, and they have also partnered with Ticketmaster as its official ticketing agency.
