West coast sounds

Music is personal and unifying at the same time. And as much as you may love jamming out at the gym with headphones blasting, sometimes you just have to see a live show. San Diego offers many ways to experience live music, comedy and family shows — with crowds large or small, indoors or in the breeze, local bands or headliners that fill stadiums. Peek at the venues below and check their calendars to see who’s performing where while you’re here.

San Diego Symphony + The Rady Shell at Jacobs Park

Debuting in the summer of 2021, The Rady Shell is an acoustically engineered waterfront wonder. It’s the summer home of the San Diego Symphony Orchestra, with guest performances throughout the year.
