Your time at Euphonious will be a stand-out memory of the summer
Is there anything better than a weekend listening to great live music in Birmingham? I didn’t think so. Plus, Euphonious isn’t *just* a music festival. This event is a celebration of tech and innovation, music to our ears in the Magic City.

This Birmingham music festival has ties to the city
At Bham Now, we love supporting all things Birmingham. Luckily, so does Euphonious. Its producer, Bradley Metrock, is a Vestavia Hills native and wanted to start a major regional tradition to celebrate the city of Birmingham. This is great news for concertgoers who obsess over finding the next big thing in music and local businesses that will benefit from more foot traffic.
If you like being the first of your friends to do the next cool thing, you’ll want to attend the inaugural year of Euphonious. Of course, a true friend wouldn’t say “I told you so” after the concert was a hit—they would invite their friends to join a square.
“Like City Stages back in 1989, we are beginning Euphonious in modest fashion – in this case, with one single stage – with eyes on what the event may be able to become for the city of Birmingham. We’re excited about this year’s lineup and the prospect of gathering together again to enjoy live music – has been a long time coming.”Bradley Metrock, CEO, Project Voice; Executive Producer, Euphonious
All 3 openers have connections to Birmingham
It’s no secret Birmingham is home to a thriving music scene. During each night of Euphonious, you’ll find headliners who sound amazing *and* have connections to Birmingham. Two members of Saturday’s headliner, Moon Taxi, actually met while in high school at Vestavia Hills.
A portion of Euphonious’ proceeds will support United Ability
While you’re jamming out to your favorite artists, you can feel good because a portion of proceeds from each ticket and 100% of revenue from the special Euphonious afterparty will support United Ability. Since 1948, United Ability has provided services to children and adults with all types of disabilities.
“We love them and we love their mission. That’s a tried and true Birmingham organization.”Bradley Metrock, CEO, Project Voice; Executive Producer, Euphonious
Check out the ticket options
One big perk of an outdoor music festival is that social distancing is a breeze. The event takes place on The Birmingham Zoo’s Henley Park Event Lawn, which offers plenty of room to spread out. It’s also far enough away from the animals so they won’t be affected by the music.
For the concert, the Zoo’s lawn will be divided into about 300 squares that measure 10 ft by 10 ft and fit up to eight people. At $500 a square, you and your crew can enjoy the concert with your own personal space.
You can also purchase individual standing-room-only tickets to watch the concert from the area around Henley Park Lawn.
