Les Schwab Amphitheater, 344 SW Shevlin Hixon Dr, Bend, OR 97702


May to August

The Les Schwab Amphitheater’s Summer Concert Series provides the soundtrack to the summer months in Bend.

With concerts typically starting over Memorial Day Weekend, the Amphitheater hosts between 10 and 20 shows a year, with the concert schedule winding down in the early fall.

Capable of holding as many as 8,000 spectators, the Amphitheater has played host to music from all genres. Oregon’s largest outdoor amphitheater has welcomed legends such as Paul Simon, Bob Dylan and Ringo Starr, rocked and rolled with the likes of the Deftones and Primus, and jammed with Dave Matthews Band and Phish. Jack Johnson, the Avett Brothers and Luke Bryan have all graced the LSA stage along the banks of the Deschutes River.

Tickets to all Les Schwab Amphitheater shows can be purchased online at or in person at the Ticket Mill in the Old Mill District. Tickets can also be bought the day of the show at Will Call outside the Amphitheater.

The LSA is proudly one of the greenest music venues in the country, in large part because of its Take Note Initiative. Single-use water bottles are not sold at the venue and all food and beverage providers must use 100 percent compostable dishes, utensils and cups. The Amphitheater also provides a free water-fill station and staffs trash, recycle and compost bins to ensure the proper disposal of all unwanted items.

There will be no summer concerts in 2020. Please see the website below for additional information:
