Book Asheville’s Best Listening Room

Voted “Best Listening Room” for four out of the last five years in the Best of WNC awards, The Altamont Theatre is an intimate and amazing sounding space to see a show.  We present a wide variety of music, comedy, theatre and other shows and events in our space. 

The Altamont Theatre doesn’t have a walk up crowd, we are a destination venue, typically with higher ticket prices, so please keep that in mind when inquiring about a show. 

Please do not contact us for a show if you have never performed your own ticketed show in Asheville and don’t have a history of strong ticket sales. We are not the right spot for your first ticketed show in town or for building an audience, there’s plenty of other venues for that.  And our opening slots are few and far between and typically are packaged or go to local bands.  If you’ve never sold any tickets in Asheville, do not request an opening slot.

While many of our shows are seated, we are truly a customizable space and have a variety of seating and stage options.

We have a full green room with a separate dressing room, restrooms, and even a shower backstage for the artists. The Altamont Theatre is a professional environment where we treat artists with respect.

Booking Contact

If you’re interested in playing at the Altamont Theatre contact Sam via email, NO PHONE CALLS PLEASE, you will just be referred right back to this page. Make sure you include detailed box office information from your most recent, headlining ticketed show in Asheville.  If this information is not included, we cannot guarantee you will get a response to your inquiry.
