An infamous 1800s penitentiary. An ancient stone fortress. An abandoned lime quarry. These are just a few of the enchanted places where you can see live music around the South. Check out these bucket-list-worthy concert venues!

The Momentary
Bentonville, Arkansas

Set within the wooded beauty of the Ozarks, the Momentary is a venue like none other. The Momentary and the adjacent Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art sit on 120 lush acres, and you could easily spend a whole day eating and exploring here before a show.

One of their most popular annual events is FreshGrass: a two-day festival spanning multiple outdoor stages, courtyards, and galleries of the Momentary. Aside from the music, you can view the galleries and exhibits for free, enjoy lots of activities, taste local food and drinks, and shop local wares. The 2023 lineup features Caamp, Mavis Staples, Sierra Ferrell, The Del McCoury Band, Tank and the Bangas, and more.
