Logjam Presents will soon begin construction on its new 1,500-capacity venue in Bozeman, Mont., called ELM.

The venue was announced in May and will begin construction on March 4. The building is scheduled to be completed in winter 2020.

Logjam already owns the Top Hat, The Wilma and the KettleHouse Amphitheatre and further consolidated its position in the Montana market when it inked a deal to exclusively book Missoula’s Ogren Park in July.

“Through the experience of Logjam with its other owned venues – the Top Hat, the Wilma and the KettleHouse Amphitheater – we have learned that the esthetic and functional design is an integral part of the concertgoer experience,” Logjam owner Nick Checota said in a statement. “We feel our investments in acoustic treatments, production capabilities, functional design and the overall architectural statement are critical success factors of a world-class venue.”

Logjam Presents was founded in 2016 by Nick Checota, who told Pollstar at the time: “A lot of the promoters that work in this region, the Northwest region, are headquartered in other markets.

“We feel this market is unique and having a presence here really gives us an advantage in understanding the types of music this market wants to see and the types of entertainment this market wants to buy.”
