Picture this: sugar white sand, the Gulf of Mexico, a golden sunset and a drink in hand; doesn’t get much better does it? Now add in live music and you’ve got yourself a party. Each Tuesday from April to October, Pensacola Beach’s popular outdoor summer concert series, Bands on the Beach, takes the stage at the beautiful Gulf Side Pavilion on Pensacola Beach.

Featuring a lineup of regional artists, music fans can expect an eclectic mix of music from country to soul to rock and roll! Take off your shoes and dance on the sugar white sand, or just sit back, relax and enjoy.

People of all ages set up their lawn chairs, blankets, and picnic baskets. Heck, some people go all out with tables, candles and fully prepped meals while enjoying the music. For those less prepared, concessions and cocktails are available nearby. Whatever your style, the venue's beach backdrop, accompanied by a subtle island breeze, is hands down unparalleled.

(Remember: No glass on the beach and pets must stay at home!)
