San Diego’s Live Music Scene Sizzles

Music lovers have much to discover in San Diego.  If your tastes lean to the classics, then an outdoor symphony at sunset, organ concerts in the park, a nationally recognized summer music festival or a world-class opera are sure to fulfill. 

For those who crave a less refined form of expression, San Diego offers a host of moody jazz halls, iconic rock clubs, vast outdoor arenas and sizzling night clubs, sprinkled throughout the county.

San Diego’s local music scene continues to churn out hit-makers and chart-toppers in the national arena. With bands like Pinback, Blink 182 and Jason Mraz who are based in San Diego and started out playing local clubs and have made it big, the San Diego Music Awards is great event to attend if you’re scouting for the next big act to come out of the city.

Whether your ears desire classical, opera, bluegrass, rock, jazz or pop, you’re sure to find a concert, show or performance that will satisfy your inner canals and send your mood soaring to new heights.
