Looking for a weekend music get-away close enough to home to get there easily, but far enough away to unplug from your daily routine and make it special? As Indiana’s Music City, Madison, Indiana has just what you’re looking for. A far-out music scene in a beautiful town on the Ohio River bursting at the seams with opportunities to see live music every weekend!
Madison is tucked away in the rolling hills of Southern Indiana, located centrally triangulated between Indianapolis, Cincinnati, and Louisville. Two hours from Indianapolis, an hour-and-a-half form Cincinnati, and only an hour from Louisville.
Madison’s historic 1850s architecture (the entire downtown is on the National Register of Historic Places), waterfalls, unique Main Street shopping district, festivals, riverfront, independent restaurants, and of course a wide variety of music venues make Madison a weekend get-away destination you’ll come back to experience again and again.
While Madison may not be as well-known as other Indiana cities, when it comes to music, it has a thriving scene that is unique in its own right. The number of resident musicians per-capita rivals any city in the Midwest, and Madison’s unique ability draw to talent from all over the country for live performances (many of whom decide to take up permanent residence in Madison) makes it a performers hub in the central United States. The town's historic venues, festivals, and events set it apart from other cities and make it a must-visit destination for music lovers. Madison, Indiana truly is “Indiana’s Music City”.
