Paragon Presents is a live entertainment promoter headquartered in the live music capital of the world; Austin, Texas. Paragon was founded by two long standing independent promoter groups, TAG Presents and Nederlander Concerts, together bringing more than 60 years combined experience in the music industry. But more importantly both groups share the independent ideals that the live music industry was founded upon, and are committed to bringing live music back to its roots. Live music should be focused on connecting with the fans hearts, not on connecting with their wallets. It should be about creativity, joy and the connection fans feel. Paragon's mission is to bring back that independence and creativity that originally permeated live music and put the focus back on the fans experience. Named 'Paragon' for its exemplary, best-in-class ideals, this new partnership's goal is to create the most fan-centric experience during live events, making the fan feel like a star.
Paragon is dedicated to raising the bar of what the best live experience should feel like for the fans and artists at every show. Because the experience may change over the years, but the philosophy behind it shouldn't. Focus on the fans and give them what they want.
