Wichita has a new downtown concert venue called WAVE, with tons of events, concerts, and fun and games already scheduled. We think this is a great addition to Wichita’s entertainment and nightlife.
WAVE is unique in that it has both an indoor and outdoor stage and concert area.
WAVE Indoor Venue
The indoor area has a very industrial, artsy feel to it. The mixture of metal, wood and concrete add a clean urban vibe to the location. There’s modern art on the walls and it has a fully stocked bar.
The indoor concert area can hold up to 500 people and has a great stage for concerts.
You can even spend your lunch break at WAVE. Adios Nachoria serves tacos, burritos, nachos & tortas daily. And if you are in the area between 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. most weekdays, stop in for some delicious Mexican food with a side of live music.
Outdoor Concert and Event Venue
The outdoor stage and concert area is next to the elevated train tracks. In addition, part of the building is made with storage containers, giving the space a unique vibe. It has the capacity to hold up to 3,300 people.
WAVE has already brought a lot of musicians and concerts to Wichita. They also host a variety of events including cornhole tournaments, trivia nights, and the winter Old Town Farmer’s Market is held here. We’ve included a schedule of upcoming WAVE events below, and you’ll see pretty much everything is super affordable (and looks like a lot of fun).
Promoters Adam and Jessica Hartke have a lot of ideas for this unique space in downtown Wichita. Be on the lookout for more exciting events to come!
