Cleveland's known as the home of rock 'n' roll. However, as the city's slate of upcoming music festivals and events reveals, we're also a town whose heart beats with the sounds of all musical styles—including jazz, folk, classical and hip-hop, to name a few—all summer long. Mark some (or all) of these warm weather highlights down on your calendar.
Thursdays and Fridays, Now-September 8, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is alive with the sound of music all summer long. The outdoor concerts take place in the plaza in front of the Rock Hall, where you can jam while indulging in fare from local food trucks and brews from the beer garden. Not only are there national acts such as MUNA, Adrian Belew, Guided By Voices, The Bluebonnets (the Austin-based band helmed by Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Kathy Valentine of the Go-Go's) and Jimmy Eat World, but there are plenty of local artists too playing outdoors.
Avon Lake will once again come alive with the sound(s) of music, and illuminate the joy that this art brings to the community.

Every Wednesday, June 15-August 17

Weekends, July 2-September 4
outdoor Cuyahoga Falls amphitheater undergoes a Superman-Clark Kent identity shift during the warmer months.

This year's Blossom Music Festival schedule kicks off with an Independence Day weekend "Salute to America," featuring a performance of Tchaikovsky's "1812 Overture" (July 3-4) and includes Paul Simon Songbook (July 10), The Lord of the Rings (July 22-24), Broadway legends (July 31), Harry Potter & the Chamber of Secrets (August 20-21) and more. The 2022 season closes on Labor Day weekend with The Sound of Music.
