Outdoor Music Guide (OMG) now Available!

Live music became extremely challenging to host in-person in light of COVID restrictions. Music venues and musicians across Madison looked for creative alternatives to offer shows. The City received multiple inquiries about what was possible for performers who used amplification to do outdoor music while complying with Public Health policies. To assist musicians and music business owners, the City created the Outdoor Music Guide (OMG). It summarizes all the options based on City ordinances with the understanding that every activity is unique and other rules may apply.
