Austin, Texas has been known as the "Live Music Capital of the World," for quite a long time, and that title was appropriately manifested over two days at Circuit of the Americas for the 2024 Coca Cola Sips & Sounds Summer Festival that featured two full days of live country, blues, and soul with a whole lot of refreshing Coke products that always hit the spot in our lovely Central Texas heat.

Personally, there were many highlights across the two days as not only a live music fan and festival goer, but also as a member of the media covering the events. Perhaps my favorite experience happened right beside a world record setting event, more on both below.

While exiting the ICEE Igloo, met a young couple who have been married for about 11 years, and recently relocated to Temple in the past couple of years from the Seattle, Washington metro. They said they had never heard the reference of Austin being the live music capital, but heartily agreed based on just their short time living here compared to Seattle.

They said it does feel like there is always a ton of shows happening, and way more options than Seattle, which of course is the birth of the grunge movement of the late 80s on, and basically created what rock music is today.
