The Drop-In is back with more music than ever.

Our free outdoor concert series returns on May 25th! Every Thursday through August 10th, we’ll provide the tunes and the view if you bring the energy. Even better – this year we’ve added more music, which means even more opportunities for a good time. Shake off your blankets and lawn chairs, double-check you have all the Drop-In info you need, and prepare to vibe on our new 3D printed stage all summer long. 👇!

Make sure you’re the first to know 

Get on the list for the freshest Drop-In deets (like when RSVPs open) plus weekly show updates about DJ sets, food trucks, and other pre-show surprises.

How it works

FRIDAY – We’ll announce the artist (Members get to RSVP here, too)


THURSDAY – Kick it with us on the Lawn

RINSE & REPEAT – See ya next week

About Long Center Vistas

This is the LC’s newest program focusing on outdoor, Austin-centric experiences — just like The Drop-In! With more Vistas to come, we’re inviting Austinites to explore new sights and sounds with us, right in the city’s own backyard. Plus, we know nothing entices you more than a free show. Hope you can come hang!

Want music homework?

Takes a music nerd to know a music nerd. Good thing the 2023 playlist just dropped.

Want to get your company involved?
