Central Oregon’s iconic music venue, the Hayden Homes Amphitheater (HHA) in Bend, is bigger and better than ever before after undergoing a major renovation.
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 HHA has hosted the likes of Phish, Dave Matthews Band, Death Cab for Cutie, Alabama Shakes, Ringo Starr, Paul Simon, Weird Al and many more.
Each season the line-up includes a diverse mix of returning and first-time acts. See the full list and buy tickets online at BendConcerts.com. Shows at the HHA 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.
