Bloomington’s incredible live music scene is as dynamic and diverse as its community. Dance along to 80s hair bands in an energetic bar, have a picnic while listening to bluegrass in the park, and be wowed by the classical orchestra at the world-renowned IU Jacobs School of Music. There are concerts, recitals, and performances nearly every day of the year, with such a large variety that you can easily seek out your favorite genres, or enlighten your ears with new sounds and melodies. Our community’s passion for live music is also showcased by the annual music events and festivals that will leave you amazed, from a national harp competition to a celebration of world music that transforms our downtown, and so much more.
We love to give stuff away to our fans and followers, so we have contests pretty much all year long.
