The Hayden Homes Amphitheater in Bend’s Old Mill District is Oregon’s largest outdoor music venue, accommodating up to 8,000 concertgoers on the grassy infield, offering horizon views of the Cascades. Nestled along the picturesque Deschutes River, the open-air venue captures the heart of Bend's natural beauty, making it the perfect backdrop for both electrifying performances and relaxed evenings under the stars.

Our rock star crew is all for creating musical memories that last a lifetime. Over the years we've hosted inspirational icons such as John Legend, Brandi Carlile, Ringo Starr, The Roots, The Chicks, ODESZA, Chris Stapleton, and boygenius. This year’s Les Schwab Tires Concert Series is no different.

From the outlaw country sounds of Tyler Childers and Charley Crocket to blues legends Slash and Warren Haynes; the hilarious crowd work of stand-up comedians Iliza Shlesinger and Matt Rife to the heart pumping dance music of LCD Soundsystem and Chromeo. This year brings music moguls St. Vincent and Orville Peck to our stage for the first time, as well as classic rock legends Styx, Foreigner and The Doobie Brothers. Did we mention our favorite alt-rock artists Hozier, Vampire Weekend, Cage The Elephant and chart-topping rebel Maren Morris and Latin sensations the Gipsy Kings featuring Nicolas Reyes are also slated to hit the amphitheater stage?

Beyond the thrill of music, the concert experience is enhanced by a variety of local food vendors. Attendees can indulge in a selection of Bend’s finest food trucks, like El Sancho Tacos, Cuban Kitchen, The BOB and Dump City Dumplings, as well as local beers and wines showcasing the best of Oregon’s craft beverages. This culinary celebration not only highlights the region's rich gastronomic culture but ensures that every concert goes down as a feast for the senses.

The Hayden Homes Amphitheater has also been hailed as an industry leader in sustainability for its Take Note Initiative. Our Green Team works diligently to reduce our environmental impact in various ways including the availability of water fill stations for reusable water bottles, compostable cups and utensils, cashless and paperless points of payment, digital tickets, separate receptacles for waste sorting stations, and more than 300 bike racks.

Bend itself is an essential part of the allure, with its reputation as an outdoor paradise. The adventurous trails of the Cascade Mountains and the serene waters of the river offer endless activities for visitors to explore before settling in for an evening of live music. The Hayden Homes Amphitheater in the Old Mill District proudly stands as a beacon of Bend’s cultural scene, providing a seasonal symphony of sounds and tastes that can only be experienced here. Join us this summer for unforgettable moments at one of the Pacific Northwest's premier music destinations!
