Head on down to the Hayden Home Amphitheater to enjoy a concert with friends or family for a night you won’t forget. Flashing lights begin and the smoke starts dusting the stage until the artist reveals themselves and the crowd begins to go wild. Singing along to your favorite song as the night carries you away. 

Are you a country fan and want a crazy night out? The summer of ‘22 is the summer for you. Kenny Chesney (7/19-20), Jon Pardi (7/23), Thomas Rhett (8/19), and Maren Morris (8/26) are some of today’s hottest hit country singers coming to Bend this summer. Relax with your friends along the Deschutes River, surrounded by the finest mountains, while your favorite country artist performs right in front of you. 

Maybe you are more relaxed in a lawn chair, enjoying the night kind of vibe?  Jason Mraz (7/9), Train (8/3), and Jack Johnson (9/25) are the perfect artists for you. Grab a blanket and your favorite beverage and sit back and relax all while watching the sun fade away. Surround yourself with those you love and enjoy the fresh Central Oregon breeze along the river while listening to the artist come alive. 

Ready for a good throwback with your good ole buds? More of the 80s and 90s hits? The Barenaked Ladies (6/15), Goo Goo Dolls (7/16), and The Chicks (8/9-10) are also part of the many artists coming to Bend to have a summer of dreams. The 90’s was probably the decade that shaped our society, the Afro hair, the neon colors and the hip hop music that blasts through the speakers everywhere you go. These artists are funky and upbeat and you won’t want to miss an opportunity where you might get a sense of what the 90s felt like. 

This summer’s going to be filled with lots of versatile artists to satisfy everyone’s musical style. With your voice gone from belting and head pounding, you won’t miss out on these special opportunities, and the unforgettable memories.
