The sounds of Willie Nelson, Pearl Jam, Chris Stapleton, Dierks Bentley, and other famous musicians swell into the streets and rise up to the mountains on any given night. Music pulses through Missoula. There’s country, bluegrass and rock. There’s local bands trying to make it big and bona fide rock stars on Missoula’s stages. It’s no wonder Missoula’s music scene is considered the best in Montana and is gaining notoriety throughout the West. Missoula is undeniably a music town. You can find live music any day of the week. Sometimes the biggest challenge is prioritizing which shows you want to see and which venues you want to hit. Lineups include internationally known performers—think ZZ Top, the Rolling Stones and Macklemore—along with up-and-coming artists, indie favorites with cult followings, and local bands making their mark on the music scene.
