Carmel Music

Carmel’s music scene is so rich that it could rival any other major music city in the nation. Carmel hosts music events, it has music avenues, and it has plenty of opportunities for local musicians to perform their own work.


Each summer, Carmel hosts a Live Music Series, which is a ten week long concert series featuring live music (of course), food, wine, beer, and great company. Every Friday night between 5 and 7:00 PM at the Carmel Plaza, you can dance, sing along, and experience some of the best live music you could imagine.


At the Pacific Repertory Theatre, you can enjoy wonderful live performances ranging from Shrek the Musical to The Legends of Rock Tribute Concert. The Pacific Repertory Theatre has something to offer everyone. Whether you are interested in Broadway musicals, concerts, or operatic style events, you will definitely find it here.


For a more low key night, check out one of the many bars or restaurants in Carmel that offer live music nights. East Village Coffee Lounge, Planet Gemini, and various other restaurants in and around town offer live music nights. Don’t miss out on some really great local talent.
