Live Music

If you want to experience live music, look no further than Navy Pier. For decades, music has remained an essential part of the Pier’s lifeblood.

A stroll around the Pier is like a trip through a giant streaming service that stretches out onto Lake Michigan. From classic rock to reggae, heavy metal to hip-hop, big band to blues—not to mention Motown, folk, country and jazz—you can enjoy almost any music genre on any given day at Navy Pier. Some of Chicago’s top musicians and most popular bands perform here because we have some of the best live music venues in Chicago.
