Thanks in large part to a certain cartoon mouse, Orlando is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. While its reputation is mostly based on its great weather and famous amusement parks, Orlando has a lot to offer as a concert city as well.
The Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts is a prominent location for music and theater in Orlando. Phase 1 of the complex opened in November of 2014. The center’s largest auditorium is the Walt Disney Theater, which hosts a variety of concerts and Broadway musicals. The center’s other auditoriums include Pugh Theater, which hosts smaller events, and Steinmetz Hall, a popular venue for orchestra, opera and ballet performances.
Amway Center is best known as the home of the NBA’s Orlando Magic. The venue is three times as large as the old Amway Arena, which the Amway Center replaced when it opened in 2010. The arena’s most striking feature is its 180-foot tower that features prominently in the skyline of Downtown Orlando. Shakira performed the arena’s first concert, and dozens more artists have performed at Amway Center since then. Some highlights of Amway Center’s concert performers include Pink, Katy Perry, Imagine Dragons, Ariana Grande, and Panic! At the Disco. Amway Center can accommodate up to 20,000 people.
If you’re looking for some nightlife to go with your music, Orlando has you covered there too. The city boasts many great venues for drinks, dancing, and music. One of the city’s most popular nightclubs is the Beacham. The club, located in Downtown Orlando, has hosted A-List talent like 50 Cent, Ice Cube, DJ Khaled, and Meek Mill. Orlando is also home to a House of Blues location. The House of Blues chain of venues offers live music on nearly every day of the week in addition to food and drink from its restaurant and bar.

Most of Orlando’s concert venues are located in Downtown Orlando. For reference and for those in town on vacation, it is about a 20-30 minute drive from Disney World to get downtown.

During the festival, there are concerts happening on 15 indoor and outdoor stages all over Downtown Orlando.
