Bands on the Bricks

For 25 years, Bands on the Bricks has been Boulder County's premier outdoor summer concert series taking place on the one-and-only Pearl Street Mall. A not-to-be-missed summer tradition, our 2021 season includes 4 Wednesdays of free concerts. Enjoy live performances from the best local musicians along the front range while dancing under the stars. 

Featuring a large outdoor beer/wine/margarita garden opening at 5:30 pm every Wednesday night, featuring Avery Brewing Co. and T/ACO margaritas. Scroll down for the band line-up and samples of the music!

We are thrilled to bring our community back together for the modified return of Bands on the Bricks this summer, especially now when human connections are more important than ever.  While we are excited to have you back, we realize and respect that  everyone has varying levels of comfort in larger crowds. At the event, we will recommend masks for our unvaccinated attendees as social distancing will be harder in the small space.   The most important thing is for all of us to continue to practice kindness, understanding and respect for one another. Please use your best judgement and distance yourself from anyone who is making you uncomfortable.

As rules and regulations change, you can also find updates on our website's Visit Safe page
