Central Oregon’s iconic music venue, the Les Schwab Amphitheater in Bend, has started rolling out its star-studded 2018 summer concert line-up and it’s already filled with big-name acts set to rock the region (and get you rolling with laughter.)
The 8,000-capacity venue situated on the banks of the Deschutes River in Bend’s Old Mill District opened in 2002 and almost immediately became a must-stop for high-profile touring artists. In recent years LSA has hosted the likes of Phish, Paul Simon, Dave Matthews Band, Death Cab for Cutie, Alabama Shakes, Ringo Starr, Weird Al and many more.
The 2018 line-up includes a diverse mix of returning and first-time acts: (Click the artist to buy tickets.)
You can buy tickets for all the shows online at BendConcerts.com or in person at the Ticket Mill, located between Anthony’s and PacSun in The Old Mill. Shows at the LSA include multiple local food vendors and local craft beer, wine and spirits. Or, you can grab a bite to eat at one of the fabulous restaurants across the river in The Old Mill. If you’re looking for the closest lodging options, the Hampton Inn is located right next to the amphitheater while the Hilton Garden Inn is on the hill that overlooks the shopping center. And the brand new Springhill Suites is located just up the street adjacent to the Old Mill.
In addition to the big-name acts coming this summer, LSA is also home to the region’s largest beer festival, Bend Brewfest, August 16-18.
