City takes steps to preserve Nashville’s independent live music venues

3 min read

Metro council members took steps Tuesday to stabilize and preserve some of Nashville’s most iconic independent live music venues.

The council voted to approve:

Tuesday’s approvals come after several well-known venues have announced they will be forced to move from their widely beloved locations as their leases end and Nashville property values soar. 

Metro to study tools to preserve venues

Metro Council approved $260,000 in American Rescue Plan Act funds for a study aiming to identify strategies to preserve independent live music venues. Outside consultants will study methods used in other cities to assist live music venues as they face increasing development pressure.
