Summer Music Festivals Guide

Live music is as much a part of summer as flip flops, swimming holes and barbecue. The VPR listening area is loaded with summer music festivals for just about any taste.

Visit The VPR Summer Music Festivals Guide

You can hear Ron Carter, Benny Golson and Tony Bennett at Discover Jazz this summer. Opera Company of Middlebury is doing “The Italian Girl In Algiers” and “La Traviata.” The Gibson Brothers and Lonesome River Band are playing the Jenny Brook Music Festival. And  Eric Anderson, Patty Griffin, The Besnard Lakes are at the Montreal Folk Festival. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

The best way to find out what music is playing in your area is with the VPR Summer Music Festivals Guide. We’ve completely redesigned the page to make it easier than ever to find your music using any device - computer, smartphone or tablet. There’s a search box to help you locate your festival. You can look at the whole list of what’s happening or narrow it down by genre. Click on a listing to get the festival's address and website and follow the map link to get directions to the show.

We’ll be updating the page as more dates become available. Contact us if you have a festival you want to add.
