About C3 Presents


C3 Presents creates live experiences for millions of fans across the globe, setting the new standard each year for events that are as memorable as they are spectacular. One of the world’s largest music festival producers, C3 is the force behind two of the most iconic multi-day festivals — Austin City Limits Music Festival in Texas and Lollapalooza in Chicago and its six international editions — drawing a combined 2 million music lovers annually.

The current event roster also includes Voodoo Music + Arts Experience (New Orleans), Music Midtown (Atlanta), Innings Festival (Tempe), Shaky Knees and Shaky Beats (Atlanta), Austin Food + Wine Festival, the NFL Draft Fan Festival (Chicago/Philadelphia/Dallas/New Orleans, Nashville), and many more.

Headquartered in Austin, TX, with offices in New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta, New Orleans, Denver, Boston, and London, the company also promotes more than 1,100 concerts annual in arenas, casinos and clubs throughout North America. In addition to full-service event production, C3’s artist management division guides and develops careers for a select roster of artists.


Under our roof sit a full-time staff of professionals specializing in marketing, publicity, creative, sponsorship, ticketing, talent buying, accounting and legal services. These internal resources as well as a go-to team of partners allow us to be a turnkey solution or an a la carte provider. To Red Bull we are the on-the-ground experts executing their vision for the X-Fighters competition, while SMG relies on us as a programming and marketing partner for Soldier Field in Chicago, and ACL Festival and Lollapalooza tap all our capabilities. At every level, a spirit of collaboration and cooperation enables us to surmount any and all challenges, from unexpected weather hazards, to eleventh-hour changes in long-standing plans. We’ve developed a reputation for facing any and all challenges with unflinching confidence and flexibility.

Lollapalooza. The Barack Obama Presidential Election Night Celebration in Chicago. The Austin City Limits Music Festival. The 56th Annual Presidential Inauguration.

These are but a few reasons why C3 has garnered a proven track record of delivering events that are as memorable as they are successful.
