Bringing culture back to nature.
What is the Alfresco Concert Tour? It’s an outdoor entertainment experience in the open air that aims to bring people, high art, and culture back to the original source of human inspiration–nature. Founded solely by award-winning guitar virtuoso and avid outdoorsman, Tye Austin, this concert model aims to promote mental health, community growth, and positive lifestyles in safe environments. There will be three concerts every weekend, (Friday/Saturday soirees at 7pm & Sunday matinees at 3pm), from August 6-October 31, 2022. Majority of concerts will be located at the founder’s off-grid coastal property in Bandon, OR nearby HWY 101. Other concerts will be held at private estates, ranches, retreat centers, state parks, beaches, natural and commercial hot springs, river lodges, volcanic craters, mountain lakes, high desert playas, and national/historical monuments across the state of Oregon.
Each concert on the tour includes live music, lodging, dinner & drinks. Live concerts feature award-winning musicians from around the world. Guests may stay at campgrounds, log cabins, river lodges, and/or beachfront cottages located nearby each concert. Sommeliers pour wine, beer, and cocktails while gourmet chefs prepare dinner using wild ingredients. Before and after each concert, guests may sign-up for a variety of guided recreational tours ranging from mushroom foraging to surfing, rafting, kayaking, Mt. biking, hot spring hiking, and more depending on the concert location. Certified outdoor adventure guides and coaches will be leading tours and teaching lessons for each activity mentioned above.
This concert model is the brainchild of Tye Austin, award-winning guitar virtuoso and avid outdoorsman. During the global pandemic lockdowns of 2020, he witnessed his tour dates and cruise ship contracts cancel overnight. As a reaction, he decided to combine music entertainment with outdoor recreation in order to remove music venues from the concert equation. Thus, more artists are able to perform and net more profit from live concerts by bringing their art directly to fans. Audiences also benefit from cheaper rates for high art music concerts at their preferred recreation locations. His goal is to teach other musicians how to collaborate, instead of compete, with each other. Instead of relying on music venues and gate keepers to dictate when and where art is shared, it’s time artists create their own independent event companies in the same vein as independent record labels. Let’s start a revolutionary renaissance for the arts together!
