The high country will be jamming this summer! In recent years there has been lots of growth and expansion in both the talent performing in the mountains and the venues in and around Breckenridge. Allow us to take you on a tour of the spaces and places you can catch some tunes this summer and some of the high notes that will be hitting with big performances!
The largest venue in Breck sits along the flow of the Blue River, has large retractable bay doors to let in the cool summer breeze, and a huge lawn outdoors where the music travels outside in full view of the mountains. Summer home of the National Repertory Orchestra, you can find them or other big names here every Saturday night in the Summer. For summer 2023, Mary Chapin Carpenter, The Wailers, and Graham Nash bring their sounds to the stage!
- Location: 150 W. Adams Ave, Breckenridge, CO 80424
Breckenridge Music AirStage
The newest addition to the music venues in Breckenridge is a reborn classic. Breck Create has taken a classic Airstream trailer and modified it with a pop-out stage that is perfect for mid summer jam sessions in the Breckenridge Arts District, Carter Park, Blue River Plaza and anywhere it can be parked!
After a recent renovation just a few years ago, the Dillon Amphitheater is drawing the biggest names to Summit County. This venue has a dance floor, bowl, lawn seating, and an unbeatable view of Lake Dillon and the Ten Mile Range. They have music every Friday night and some nights during the week. For summer 2023, they’ve drawn in legendary artists such as Rainbow Kitten Surprise, Trampled By Turtles, Young The Giant, Umphreys McGee, Pretty Lights, and more!
- Location: 135 W. Lodgepole St., Dillon, CO 80435
10 Mile Music Hall
10 Mile Music Hall is Frisco’s Main Street music mecca! This updated indoor venue is the perfect place to pop into when you are out of Breck for the night. After a stroll down Frisco’s historic downtown, you can take in a show from this two-story venue with a huge dance floor and a large 2nd-floor balcony.
- Location: 710 Main St., Frisco, CO 80443
In addition to the larger venues, there are tons of bars and restaurants around town where you can catch some live, local music! Here are a few of our favorites:
Red Rocks Amphitheater
Okay, we admit, to call this one a local venue is a stretch- but it’s just too iconic not to include! Located 68 miles (1.5 hours) from Breckenridge, Red Rocks Park and Amphitheater is world-famous for its stunning, naturally formed amphitheater converted into a concert venue. While Red Rocks hosts some of the biggest acts in the world, they are still small enough to have that intimate feel. A concert at Red Rocks Amphitheater should be on any Colorado bucket list! Check out their concert schedule and catch a show this summer!
