INDIANAPOLIS – Live music venue HI-FI, located in the popular Fountain Square neighborhood of Indianapolis, will re-open to the public on Friday, January 20, 2017, with a fresh look and expanded performance space increasing the venue capacity to 400 people.

Indianapolis native Otis Gibbs will headline the grand reopening, beginning at 8 p.m. Tickets are $13 in advance ($15 at the door), available via Ticketfly.

The 30-day transformation, which included acquiring the space formerly occupied by local art gallery iMOCA, will accommodate the increase in both visitors and touring artists. With the new venue size, the HI-FI is now able to attract larger acts and provide a desirable mid-sized event space while continuing to grow with a neighborhood known for its art and music culture.

The growth will create an enhanced experience for visitors and artists with a dedicated artist green room, an expansive stage, new restroom facilities, a dedicated box office, additional seating, and upgraded sound and lighting systems.

“Our focus has always been on creating amazing live music experiences,” says HI-FI owner Josh Baker. “This expansion will allow us to hone in some key elements of that experience for our fans. With our focus on artist development, our expanded space will maintain its scalability allow us to expand and contract to suit a wide range of shows and artists including general admission and seated events.”

“A room this size will fill a void in the Indy market and provide a good proving ground for bands looking to grow into Indy’s bigger rooms, like The Vogue,” said Jason King, Entertainment Manager at The Vogue and owner of IndyMoJo Presents.

HI-FI has been on a growth trajectory since opening its doors in 2014. The venue has averaged 160 shows annually and will have hosted more than 500 shows over the past three years. Shows are constantly being added to the ever-growing schedule.
