Hit the Sand for Bands on the Beach

Picture a perfect evening – does it involve a beach? A sunset? Live music?

We’ve got the event for you.

Each Tuesday from April to October you can enjoy live music while the sun sets over the Gulf of Mexico at the Bands on the Beach concert series.

A well-diversified line up of local and regional artists take the stage at the beautiful Gulfside Pavilion on Pensacola Beach each week at 7 p.m. The event attracts thousands of fans throughout the season.

Folks of all ages set up their lawn chairs, blankets, and picnic baskets. Heck, some folks 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!)

Take off your shoes and dance on the sugar white sand, or just sit back, relax and enjoy.
