Take a seat under the stars at the Big Bear Discovery Center Amphitheater and enjoy the best in classic and contemporary rock, 7,000 feet above Southern California!

A ticket to a Music in the Mountains concert does more than get you into a great show, it helps to protect your public lands.  Proceeds support the Southern California Mountains Foundation and its powerful conservation, recreation, and education programs: The Big Bear Discovery Center, National Children's Forest, The Urban Conservation Corps of the Inland Empire, Fire Lookout Hosts, Off-Highway Vehicle and Adopt-a-Trail.

Each concert season is packed with shows featuring your favorite tribute headliners, and exciting opening bands. This beautiful venue has everything to keep you rockin', including great food menus and expanded bar service.
