The Long Center will keep the music going every Thursday night, all summer long with The Drop-In, their new free outdoor concert series in partnership with ACL Radio.

The 16-show series will run every Thursday night from May 27 to Sept. 9. Concerts will be hosted at the Long Center’s terrace overlooking the city’s skyline and Lady Bird Lake. Socially distanced seating will be provided to accommodate groups of up to six people.

Each week’s artist will be announced the Friday prior to each concert through the Long Center and ACL Radio social media accounts. Wild Child Duo is set to kick off the series, and tickets for the first show can be reserved through the Long Center’s website.



No outside food will be allowed but there will be food trucks on site selling food and beverage from local vendors, as well as a full bar serving drink specials by Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Truly Hard Seltzer and Michelob Ultra.

Tickets for the concert series are free, but reservations will be available for Long Center members. The events will start at 8:00 p.m., with doors opening at 6:30 p.m. Seating will be first come, first served and once inside the venue there will be no re-entry.
