Summertime sets the stage for some of the hottest music in Bend, from intimate pub stages to huge outdoor concerts on the lawn. Bend’s music scene comes with a wide variety of music, venue types, and crowd capacity, so there’s something for every interest. Like listening to music outside? The Les Schwab Amphitheater holds some of Bend’s largest concerts, with big names and plenty of space to dance the night away. Or check out Clear Summer Nights at the Athletic Club of Bend for a more intimate outdoor venue. Oregon Spirit Distillers also hosts a few select concerts on their patio, with some of country music’s hottest stars. 4 Peaks Music Festival is also one of Bend’s favorite 3-day outdoor music festivals happening every summer. If indoor venues are more your style, you can find a nice variety of up-and-coming acts at Volcanic Theatre Pub, Tower Theatre, or Midtown Ballroom. You can even get yourself in on some free live music, too, at Drake Park with Munch & Music happening every Thursday night, or at Bend’s annual SummerFest with tons of outdoor vendors.
