4 Airports That "Jazz Up" Your Flight

Updated: Jun 21, 2018

Live music is one of the newest trends at airports these days, making for a more entertaining layover or delay. Yes, you are reading that right. Music helps create a more localized and relaxed experience without having to leave the terminal.  We're game for anything that helps make the trip less stressful and more memorable.


Here are four airports that will have you jammin' til your flight takes off:


Austin-Bergstrom International Airport 

Austin is the Live Music Capital of the World, so it is only fitting that Austin-Bergstrom has its own live music scene. Monday through Friday, local musicians perform at various locations through the airport. What better way to start or end a visit to Austin, than hearing local musicians play while sipping on a brew? 

Performances are held in the Barbara Jordan Terminal:

  • Earl Campbell's Sports Bar (Gate 13)

  • Waterloo Records / Austin City Limits (Gate 13)

  • The Saxon Pub and Grub (Gate 5)

  • Annie's Cafe & Bar (Gate 18)

Nashville International Airport

This airport has held live music performances in its concourses since 1988. (Hello, trendsetters!) Any travelers who find themselves waiting to depart at BNA have a good chance at a free performance from one of the Music City's finest. All types of music are performed at six different stages in locations throughout the airport, so if you're a frequent flyer based in the Nashville area you will always have something to tap your feet to.

Pittsburgh International Airport 

Waiting for friends and family to arrive at this airport won't seem like such a hassle anymore, especially if there is a delay or a lost bag claim to file. (On Thursdays, that is.) As part of a new Performing Arts Series, local musicians will be performing in Baggage Claim every Thursday. So park your car in short term parking and head inside; you will have a violinist's melody to soothe you as pass the time waiting for your loved one.

Seattle–Tacoma International Airport

In an effort to showcase the Northeast's music culture through the City of Music program, SeaTac has enhanced its airport environment with constant music. And we love it. There is live music in multiple locations throughout the terminal every day of the week. Also, strategically placed speakers will be broadcasting music by over 240 Northwest artists. If you have time, you might check out the music-themed art exhibits also. A delayed flight wouldn't be the worst thing at this airport!
