Battle Axe & Tracks


Settle in for a weekend of exciting live music, toss and axe, and ride some of Nevada’s most historic train tracks at Carson City’s first multi-day music festival. New to the Carson City events scene in 2021, Battle Axe & Tracks combines Silver State history and some of the best rock and blues musicians on the scene today, with axe throwing, “Master of the Shred”, access to all kinds of great food trucks and bars, and all kinds of live music all over town for a festival experience you’ll be coming back for from here on out.

Ready to toss an axe and settle in to hear award-winning tracks? As Carson City’s first multi-day rock and blues music festival, make Battle Axe & Tracks part of your Capital City discoveries.

Located at the Eastgate Depot in Carson City, Battle Axe & Tracks takes place right in the heart of V&T railroad history—the legendary rail line that hauled millions of silver from the Comstock Lode in Virginia City to Carson City to be minted. Sign up for an axe throwing competition (included in your ticket price), ride the rails with V&T Carson Canyon Railbike Tours, and get your hands on all kinds of local food and drinks from a great lineup of food trucks and other food vendors. 

More than a dozen musical acts will be featured throughout Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, with headliners from all over the West. Past headliners include Larkin Poe, North Mississippi Allstars, Carolyn Wonderland, Six Mile Station, and many more. On Friday, head for downtown Carson City’s Brewery Arts Center to see Carson City Axe Battle, where 10 guitarists will go head to head to determine the “Master of Shred.” The winner takes the stage in Sunday’s musical lineup.
