Live Music

There's always a music performance happening in Bloomington.

Bloomington’s vibrant live music scene is as dynamic and diverse as its community. Sing at the top of your lungs with '80s cover bands at The Bluebird, have a picnic while listening to bluegrass in the park, and experience a classical orchestra performance by Indiana University's world-renowned Jacobs School of Music. Listen to a singer-songwriter strum an acoustic guitar at a brewery, attend a show by a nationally-touring artist at the IU Auditorium, and feel the beat of music from cultures around the globe at the Lotus World Music & Arts Festival. There are concerts, recitals, and performances nearly every day of the year, with such an eclectic variety of musical groups that you can easily seek out your favorite genres or enlighten your ears with new sounds and melodies.
