For over three decades the Austin Music Awards have been responsible for honoring the local music community and recognizing Austin artists and industry masterminds who have made a significant impact on Austinʼs music scene.

We welcome you to join us as we recognize the winners from the prestigious Austin Chronicle Music Poll and celebrate 36 years of Austin music and legends.

Sponsorship Packages

“…Last night’s event was the best I’ve ever been to. It was off the charts good/fun.  At midnight, no one wanted to leave.”

Treat your Clients to a Once-in-a-Lifetime Experience

Beyond being Up-Close-and-Personal with iconic performers, Sponsors have reserved tables with the best seats in the house; complimentary hors d’oeuvres, beer, wine and cocktails throughout the evening; concierge credentialing service and special parking arrangements; and a private pre-show cocktail reception on the night of the show.

Strategic Alignment / Advertising and Integration

Print, digital, social media, contests, on-site booths, projected signage, give-aways and more.   We have lots of opportunities — let’s talk about how to craft your sponsorship to meet your goals.

Exclusive Opportunity

Margaret Moser Women in Music Award

Named after the Austin Chronicle’s own Margaret Moser, this award recognizes a woman in the music business who demonstrates the values Margaret personified:  doing the hard work this industry requires with insight, heart and wit.  Begun in 2016, past honorees have been Susan Antone and Rose Reyes.

Exclusive Opportunity

Townes Van Zandt Award

The Townes Van Zandt Award honors a talent whose work has had an extensive and ongoing impact in Texas, the US and around the world. Townes Van Zandt gave us extraordinary songs, but he also changed the way songs were written.  

The inaugural award in 2017 was presented to Terry Allen.
