Live from the Artists Den is a three-time New York Emmy-nominated music television series that features popular recording artists performing in non-traditional settings throughout North America. Live from the Artists Den broadcasts nationally on public television (now in its 11th season) and internationally in the United Kingdom, Latin America, China, Japan, Germany, New Zealand, and Canada.

Featured artists have included Adele, Mumford and Sons, Tim McGraw, Ed Sheeran, Zac Brown Band, Imagine Dragons, Norah Jones, Soundgarden, Vampire Weekend, Kid Rock, Robert Plant, The Fray, Elvis Costello, The National, Ringo Starr, Marina and The Diamonds, Death Cab for Cutie, and Alabama Shakes.

A full listing of previously featured artists, TV episodes, and venues can be viewed at

Live CDs, DVDs, and digital downloads of Artists Den performances can be purchased online via iTunes and the Artists Den website.

On August 3, 2015, the Artists Den announced its first cinema release, Artists Den Presents alt-j, in partnership with Fathom Events. The one-night cinema event premiered in U.S. cinemas on September 2, 2015 and featured the U.K. rock band's full-length Artists Den performance at the Hollywood American Legion, plus exclusive interviews and an introduction from the band.


Each hour-long episode of Live from the Artists Den contains an intimate performance and interview with the featured artist(s). Mark Lieberman (Executive Producer) and Alan Light (Director of Programming) select artists with a reputation for impressive live performances, and locations are chosen for their historical significance, beauty, and/or sentimental value to the artist. The series differs from similar shows in that the venue is as much a distinguishing feature of the show as the performance. The audience for each intimate, invitation-only performance is selected via the official Artists Den mailing list.

"Live from the Artists Den" is a production of Artists Den Entertainment, presented by WLIW in association with WNET, and is distributed nationally by American Public Television. The series is filmed in 1080 high-definition and audio is recorded using Apogee’s custom Symphony I/O 64 channel multi-track system for extraordinary sound fidelity.
