Bend’s Best Live Music Concert Venue
The Les Schwab Amphitheater (LSA for short) has been rocking and rolling since the early 2000s bringing big name bands and musicians to Bend, Oregon with many performers choosing to do their only Oregon show here. Travel + Leisure even called it one of “America’s coolest music venues“. From Americana to rock to indie and pop, the LSA has featured the likes of Jack Johnson, Bob Dylan, Ben Harper, Coldplay, Beck, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Dave Matthews, Phish, Death Cab for Cutie and many more.
The live music venue, located in the Old Mill District along the dreamy Deschutes River, usually starts its summer lineup over Memorial Day weekend and continues through the early fall. With free parking, plenty of food and drink vendors inside, and the ability to bring in blankets and lawn chairs for most concerts, enjoying a show at the LSA will spoil you rotten. Top it off with unreal views of your favorite bands set against river and mountain backdrops, and we guarantee you’ll be back in Bend to see another band.
Check out the Bend concert lineup and plan to spend an evening –or afternoon– at the Les Schwab Amphitheater.
Once summer kicks off, the LSA adds the popular free Summer Sunday Concerts to their chock-full event calendar. The free concerts feature a unique musician every Sunday who are often up and coming or soon to be discovered. Concert goers are encouraged to bring the kids, a picnic lunch, and even their pups to dance the afternoon away.
If beer is your passion then you won’t want to miss the Bend Brewfest. Every August, the Les Schwab Amphitheater hosts the second largest beer festival in Oregon with more than 150 varieties of craft beer from over 50 breweries.
