The Brightside is a newly renovated industrial event space for music and events in the heart of downtown Dayton. The venue is owned and operated by Carli & Hamilton Dixon, artists and business owners, who have poured their hearts into reclaiming this gem! 


Noteworthy and authentic things have been happening in Dayton since its inception, whether the rest of the world noticed or not.  With that history and heritage, they could not think of any better love letter to our city than to breathe life into this building and create a destination that makes Daytonians proud.
