There are still discoveries to be made. New, unknown, unheralded bands to see before they blow up and have their songs blasting in every earbud; before they’re headlining every festival and are selling out every venue from Tulsa to Tokyo.

There are new songs to hear, in places you’ve never heard them. Songs that, played live, will have a different charged energy, and that will never be heard in the same way ever again.

There’s the food you’ve never had from the chef of that one restaurant you’ve been meaning to try. I mean, you never even knew half these bands and restaurants and venues and artists were even here in the Biggest Little City.

That’s the spirit of the OffBeat Music Festival, a citywide, multi-venue festival that’s all about discovering the amazing new things being created right here in Reno: Music, food, art, and more. This unique music festival showcases the growing music scene of northwestern Nevada, featuring all the best homegrown musical and artistic talent, as well as regional bands and nationally touring artists at a mix of more than a dozen venues in Midtown Reno.

From small bars to large theaters, the OffBeat Music Festival creates a “musical crawl” where you have the option of discovering new sounds from a choice of 100 performances over three days at different locations around the core of Reno.

Go off the beaten path and make some new discoveries.
