For the second straight year, Huntsville’s Orion Amphitheater has been nominated for the Amphitheater of the Year award given by International Entertainment Buyers Association.

This is pretty impressive considering that the amphitheater was built last year and therefore has only been eligible for the award for two years. This honor adds to the bevy of accolades the venue has received since opening in May of 2022.

The IEBA is not-for-profit trade organization for live entertainment industry professionals, and its annual conference is one of the most widely attended and anticipated events in the entertainment industry.

This year’s conference in Nashville Oct. 10-12 will include the announcement of the organization’s award winners. Last year’s Amphitheater of the Year award went to Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, Colorado.
