Local Venues

First of all, it’s good to get to know the venues that host all of these remarkable performances. There are several locations for listening to live music in the Ocean City, MD, area. 


If you head to the northern end of town, you’ll find a beautiful landscape known as Northside Park. Not only is this 58-acre park a paradise for outdoor recreation, but it’s also a fantastic venue for concerts! Many of them take place outside so that you can enjoy the warm weather and cool breezes in the spring and summer.


On the opposite end of town, in Downtown Ocean City, is the Inlet Lot. Don’t let the name fool you. Yes, it’s commonly used as a parking lot. However, it also often undergoes a transformation into a stunning venue with plenty of space for multiple stages and excited crowds. As an added benefit, it’s near the Ocean City Boardwalk and beach, so you can go for a scenic stroll to unwind after all the action.


Sunset Park provides another excellent option in Downtown Ocean City. And, while the community stage is relatively small, you can still catch some spectacular shows and enjoy a night of dancing in Ocean City, MD! Did we mention you can enjoy waterfront views here while you listen to the tunes?


The Roland E. Powell Convention Center has been a hotspot for events in Ocean City, MD, for several years. You’ll be pleased to know that there’s a recent addition inside the building known as the Ocean City Performing Arts Center, and it hosts a variety of concerts and performances.


(Of course, you can always enjoy performances by local bands at some of our bars and restaurants, like the ever-popular Seacrets on the Ocean City waterfront!)
