2022 Charlotte Summer Concert Guide

By CLTure

June 15, 2022 (updated)

Summer concert season is officially here. Although it’s felt like an eternity since we’ve been able to fully enjoy the many music venues Charlotte has to offer, live shows are back. While Charlotte was known as an undesirable stop for many national touring acts during the 2000s and 2010s, our city has had no problems attracting some of the biggest acts in music in recent years. With venues like Snug Harbor, Petra’s, The Milestone and The Evening Muse cranking out impressive local and regional bills, the city is brimming with musical entertainment this summer. 

There are plenty of shows to consider, all of which cover a multitude of genres, and we’ll be updating this article weekly. For those on a budget, we’ll also be giving away tickets to several shows throughout the summer, so be sure to check back frequently.
