Les Schwab Amphitheater Information
The Les Schwab Amphitheater is an outdoor venue built in the Old Mill District in Bend, Oregon. The venue was named after Les Schwab, a graduate of Bend High School who went on to become a Central Oregon businessman. When the venue opened in 2001 it held space that could accommodate 8,000 people for concerts in a comfortable and casual outdoor setting.
Geographically, the venue is known for being built on the west bank of the Deschutes River and sitting at an elevation of 3,600 feet above sea level. The venue has also been known for an estimated 27 million dollars of revenue from 125,000 visitors according to a 2015 research study on how the venue impacts Central Oregon’s economy. 75% of out of town visitors come to Bend specifically for concerts held at the venue, who stayed in hotels for an average 3.4 nights.
The venue’s popularity and local impact have allowed it to host free tournaments most Sundays throughout the summer as well as welcoming famous artists and musicians including Phish, Coldplay, Willie Nelson, Dave Matthews Band, and Bob Dylan. The venue also hosts nationally recognized events including the Bend Brewfest and has been featured as one of four finalists in Sunset Magazine’s 2016 “Best Outdoor Music Venue” awards for delighting music lovers all year round.
For many out-of-towners, the Les Schwab Amphitheater has easily placed the humble town on the map of entertainment in the Western US.
