Whitewater Amphitheater is a concert favorite, with a capacity of 5,600 and a gorgeous venue along the Guadalupe River has a magnificent natural landscape. Known for its high quality of sound, it consistently attracts top acts and thereby the fans, who can also spend the day swinging into the cool, clear water, kayaking, and of course, tubing.

Situated at the Horseshoe Loop of the river, the locale is one of the most scenic and attractive in the Texas Hill Country, namely because music lovers can easily drift with their coolers in tow, kick back, and enjoy a two-hour float. Many even party along the shore, turning any event into an almost festival-like atmosphere. And with the river considered a “backstage” area, it’s rare if acts don’t take the opportunity to go tubing themselves during the day.

Hosting a number of meet-and-greets with contest winners, Texas country music star Pat Green has been known to frequent the Whitewater Amphitheater, as well as annual regulars such as Miranda Lambert, the Randy Rogers Band, and the Josh Abbott Band, to name a few. And between the songs and sets, you can often hear the beautiful Guadalupe River rushing by. With nothing else throughout the state of Texas like it, nor the rest of the country for that matter, this 11-year-old venue is a destination in itself, with the added benefit of attracting global guests and top bills such as Willie Nelson and Bob Dylan.

And while artists recognize the area as having a great Hill Country vibe with supportive audiences, they also appreciate that on days when the fans are content to be in the water and on others when they’re rowdy from the start, the acts themselves can also blend in with the crowds, and look forward to playing the place annually. Where it’s been known to frequently sell to large throngs of fans, in an instant, it can also transform itself into an intimate setting with a very appreciative audience. The Randy Rogers Band is scheduled to play the venue on September 3, followed another evening by Bryan Adams, and still another night by Blink-182. It’s definitely the type of Texas venue everyone dreams about visiting, so rather than dream it, plan it!
