Daytona Beach Bandshell
Built to stimulate the economy during the Depression, the Daytona Beach Bandshell opened on July 4, 1937. Tucked at the edge of the Atlantic Ocean in the middle of Ocean Walk Village, it is one of the area’s most recognizable landmarks. This historic coquina amphitheater hosts an impressive outdoor concert series featuring acts ranging from bluegrass and country to big bands, swing and dixieland – with everything in between. These free concerts are a hallmark of the Spring and Summer seasons at Ocean Walk Village. For the summer concert schedule and further information, please visit bandshell.org or daytonabandshell.com.
