Summer Concert Season in Indy

As someone who regularly writes about music in Indianapolis, this summer seems to be a particularly special one for the city, with all kinds of big-name artists coming through town. From old school rockers to rising pop stars, the 2016 lineup of summer concerts in Indy offers a little bit of something for everyone, while also providing plenty of opportunities to catch a show outdoors as well. With this in mind, I’ve compiled a list of 60 of the biggest concerts happening in Indianapolis between now and the end of summer.
