Concert Venues in Maryland

Local, national and international performers all grace the stage in Maryland, providing one-of-a-kind experiences. The Baltimore area, in particular, offers many options, such as the Rams Head Center Stage at Maryland Live Casino. Or, catch a show at the Pier Six Pavilion. The large outdoor venue features a breathtaking view of Baltimore’s skyline. But, you don’t have to be in a big city to find a great venue. For instance, check out Columbia’s Merriweather Post Pavilion. It’s an outdoor amphitheater between Baltimore and Washington, D.C. that hosts an array of genres. In fact, it’s actually been named one of the best amphitheaters in the United States.

Enjoy Music in Delaware and Virginia

Can’t find a concert in Maryland? Its neighboring states have concert venues that are worth visiting. Take Delaware, for example. Outdoor venues, like Hudson Fields in South Milton and Bottle & Cork at Dewey Beach, are always packed. Or, if you’re looking for an adventure with the kids, head to the Delaware Children’s Theatre in Wilmington. Of course, if you book transportation with Chesapeake Charter, you’ll be able to invite all their friends, too.

All across Virginia, you’ll find hot spots for concertgoers – from outdoor locations to traditional theaters. When you’re in downtown Richmond, visit The National. It’s one of the most historic venues in the state. On the other hand, The Berglund Center in Roanoke offers several venues – the Coliseum, Performing Arts Theatre, Exhibit Hall and Special Events Center. Heading to the beach? Don’t miss The Farm Bureau Live in Virginia Beach. It’s set on the sand and has a 20,000-person seating capacity.

In the Heart of Washington, D.C.

From the big city lights to the major celebrities who perform there, Washington, D.C. is a thrilling place to catch a show. Check out these concert venues that Destination DC says are among the best:

  • The 9:30 Club – a standing-room-only site that’s known as “America’s best big room venue”
  • The Anthem – a big, yet intimate, concert hall that sells out fast. It was just built in 2017!
  • Echostage – the largest indoor concert venue in the District
