ROUND ROCK, TEXAS (KXAN) — The owners of Nutty Brown Amphitheater are back with a new venue in Central Texas.

A new era will be birthed at an all new space in Round Rock, at a music venue that will go by ‘Round Rock Amp’. The new location stretches 18 acres and is located at the former McNeil Park along I-35, south of the University Oaks Shopping Center. The new space will now be able to accommodate concerts, festivals and other community events, according to a city media release.

“We look forward to this new venue attracting great artists to our community, and the additional benefits it will provide for our citizens,” said Round Rock Mayor Craig Morgan.
