Curiosity is Live

Take a journey...

Welcome the discovery, diversity, and presentation of creativity with us as we find new and highlight what’s already here. This is the place where bleeding-edge musical artists meet steadfast performing arts, and where internationally-renowned scholars, authors, and voices meet family night. This is where curiosity is live.

Be on the lookOUT

If there’s one thing Austin knows, it’s that extraordinary music needs extraordinary listeners. So, we’re gathering audiophiles from across the city to experience the vibes, the sounds, and the feels of summer before they’re gone. With an enthralling lineup of artists whose music bends and blends “genre” as we know it, lookOUT Fest on September 3rd is a moment when we can be sure that the air is warm, the water is cool, and the colors are brilliant. Your ears will thank you.

Outdoor music on the Lawn featuring Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, The Album Leaf, Julianna Barwick, and more

What's On

We’re cooking up new experiences every day. See what’s happening right now, or make plans to catch a future show.

GIVE INTO CURIOSITY

It’s time to explore what’s new and rediscover what you’ve been missing. Our calendar has something for everyone this year, and you’re invited to see what we’ve been working on.

Take a walk on the curious side with a choose-your-own mixtape adventure, curated by one of Long Center’s musical explorers.

One step further — expand your comfort zone and uncover a new way to enjoy artists, sounds, and experiences by volunteering with us. So, what are you waiting for?
