Welcome, Everyone!

Salvage Station’s vast property along the French Broad River is less than a half mile from downtown Asheville.

Upon arriving, you will immediately notice the eclectic and laid-back vibe of this salvage yard turned music venue. The venue boasts a massive outdoor stage and an indoor stage for more intimate shows.

Thirsty? We’ve got something for everyone! There are several full bars with an extensive tap list of local beers, wines by the glass or bottle, liquor for those looking for a great cocktail, plus craft non-alcoholic options.

Listening to your favorite band play right next to the French Broad River will immediately make you understand why Salvage Station is always voted the best outdoor music venue in Western North Carolina.

Here’s our latest statement about what is happening with the NCDOT’s eminent domain acquisition:

Hello, to all of our dear supporters! We have some sad news to share with you regarding the latest information from the North Carolina Department of Transportation. By eminent domain, they are acquiring the property we lease at 466 Riverside Drive and have given us an official timeline. We have until the end of this year to finish our 2024 season and then must vacate the property to make way for the I-26 Connector project.

Revitalizing the now gorgeous 7 acre riverfront property, that was once a dumping ground and salvage yard, was no small feat. Danny McClinton, the owner and founder of Salvage Station, had a vision to clean and transform the property to the venue we all have come to know and love. The birth of Salvage Station has been a catalyst for growth in Asheville’s thriving music scene and a safe space for our community to gather.

We are heartbroken to pack and relocate what we have built, but our Salvage Station family is strong and we are committed to rebuilding. Where we go is unknown, but for sure, if a salvage yard can become a nationally recognized music venue, we will certainly figure out this next chapter.

What we ask from our supporters is to check out our 2024 lineup, buy tickets, and help us make this the best year yet! Ultimately, it is the energy you bring that makes Salvage Station so incredibly special.

Big Love!
