Raleigh Music Venues

Now the live music capital of North Carolina, Greater Raleigh plays host to a wide variety of artists in a wide array of settings. Whether you see one show or a dozen this year, Music Maniacs are sure to go crazy over having so many great Raleigh area music venues so close together.

Experience a "who's who" roster of live musicians at long-time area favorite Walnut Creek Amphitheatre, or see why Cary's Koka Booth Amphitheatre has been voted the nation's best small concert venue.

Revel in the intimacy of smaller shows at the North Carolina Museum of Art's Bryan Theater, immerse yourself in the full-on charge of PNC Arena shows, or take in the Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts' suite of live-performance venues. The choices, and the range of musicians, are unique and varied.

All told, 85+ venues ranging from small bars to lively restaurants to dedicated music halls welcome all types of musicians and Music Maniacs.
