Brooklyn Bowl Nashville opened its doors to the public in 2021 and is the third location of the award-winning live music venue, bowling alley, restaurant, and nightlife space Brooklyn Bowl. Brooklyn Bowl Nashville was named Best New Concert Venue at the 33rd Annual Pollstar Awards and earned recognition as Best New Venue and Best Bowling Alley in the Nashville Scene’s 2021 Best of Nashville issue upon its opening.
“The Relix Live Music Conference is like a great night out at the Capitol Theatre or Brooklyn Bowl, combined with a righteous mission,” adds David Fricke, whose current work can be found in MOJO, Jazz Times and SiriusXM. “Passionate fans gather to celebrate the music and keep it moving forward. Whether I’m attending a panel, onstage for an interview or just hanging out in between, I always come away with insights, ideas and artists I need to know – something new that goes right into my writing and radio work.”
“We are super excited to bring the Relix Music Conference to Nashville,” says Brooklyn Bowl co-founder Peter Shapiro. “I can’t believe it’s been three years since we hosted the last one. Wow - we have all been through a lot since then! Now, to get to do it at the Bowl in Nashville, it’s going to be a lot of fun to all get together again. See you all down there!”
