Live Music

Do Division features two live music stages programmed by renowned local live music venues: The Empty Bottle and Subterranean. Empty Bottle Presents books the talent for the east stage and is known for diverse, and cutting edge music. Empty Bottle was named “One of the best clubs in America” by Rolling Stone Magazine. Having talent programmed by Empty Bottle Presents assures that the event will feature current and high quality live music.

 

Subterranean programs the talent for the west stage. They also have a fantastic track record booking in demand acts for their local club. Subterranean’s reputation for featuring current and popular bands is outstanding, and their stage’s draw combined with that of the Empty Bottle Presents stage, guarantees huge crowds of diverse live music lovers at Do Division Street Fest.
