25 Music Experiences in Maryland
Maryland is home to music festivals, orchestras, and supper clubs, and in many restaurants and bars, there are often local musicians performing for an intimate crowd. Here are 25 places music fans should pilgrimage to.
1 Sweetlife Music Festival, Columbia
This celebration of music and conscious living takes place each spring at the Merriweather Post Pavilion, with food from local farmers, emphasizing sustainability. But don't forget the music: this event features 900 minutes of alternative, rap and electronic music on three stages.
2 Pier Six Pavilion, Baltimore
This music venue smack dab in the middle of the Inner Harbor is truly unique. Notable for its tensile roof, Pier Six has hosted some of entertainment’s biggest acts, from Iggy Azalea to B.B. King. Those lucky enough to have a boat can pull right up for a great view.
3 Boordy Vineyards, Hydes
More than a typical winery, Boordy features live music year round, from acoustic performances to seasonal holiday music. Bring a picnic and enjoy Boordy’s wines for a relaxing experience, or stop by when food trucks pair up with guitarists and other performers, turning a low-key dining experience into a memorable event.
4 Ram’s Head On Stage, Annapolis
In the heart of downtown Annapolis, this lively spot is part music venue, part restaurant, part brewery. See well-known acts in an intimate setting while sampling the tavern’s wide-ranging menu, house-brewed beers and specialty cocktails.
