Who We Are

AC Entertainment is internationally recognized as an innovative leader in creating, producing, booking, and marketing first-class live entertainment experiences – from festivals and concerts to all types of special events.

As founders and co-producers of Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival; founders of High Water Festival, Railbird Festival, and Big Ears Festival; producers of Forecastle Festival and Moon River Music Festival; and through the 1,000+ concerts we present nationally each year, we take special pride in those unforgettable, spine-tingling moments that everyone remembers, long after the lights have come up.

AC Entertainment also works with clients and organizations to provide personalized event management, booking, and marketing services to address their specific needs. Our venue management division operates five beautiful historic venues – the Tennessee Theatre, Bijou Theatre, and newly-minted Mill & Mine in Knoxville, Tennessee, as well as the Tivoli Theatre, Walker Theatre, and Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Auditorium in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

We look forward to seeing you at the next show!
