Whitewater Amphitheater is committed to providing a safe and joyful customer experience with a strong dose of Texan hospitality. We are dedicated to making every single moment that anyone spends at Whitewater as enjoyable as humanly possible.

Since opening its gates in 2007, Whitewater Amphitheater has grown into a nationally iconic live music venue, nestled on the banks of the Guadalupe River, below the canyon bluffs, and right in the heart of the Texas Hill Country. This is not simply another live music venue; this is a destination. A one-of-a-kind outdoor music experience for a diverse crowd of both Texans and tourists. A summer tradition. A bucket-list play. A reprieve for locals.
nestled on the banks of the Guadalupe River, below the canyon bluffs, and right in the heart of the Texas Hill Country.
With a capacity of 5,600, Whitewater Amphitheater hosts some of the hottest and legendary names in music in one of the most beautifully unique and intimate settings in the country - on the river and under the stars.
Nominated for multiple Academy of Country Music Venue of the Year Awards including Outdoor (2022) and Medium Capacity (2018), Whitewater's consistent dedication to improving the experience for artists and concert goers alike, does not go unnoticed. Year after year, familiar names return, including Willie Nelson, Ryan Bingham, Miranda Lambert, The Avett Brothers, among others.
Every year we come back, there’s something new. But it still has the same vibe.
