Wherever your musical preferences lie, you’ll find the heart of the country rocks! The city bops, raps, twangs and head bangs too.

Thanks in part to new modern arenas and iconic historic venues and, of course – Wichita’s location in the center of the country – Wichita is a stop on many national tours. Not only does the city welcome national musicians and bands on tour, but Wichita also has a vibrant and diverse local music scene for music lovers to discover.
