Summer Music Lineup

Tupper Lake is quite the busy mountain town in summer. Our days are long, filled with adventuring through forests, paddling the surrounding lakes and ponds, and maybe even taking a jaunt to Lake Placid by a paved and delightful forested trail. That being said, our nights are where the fun really kicks up. All through the summer months, you’ll hear the familiar sounds of folk, jazz, rock, blues, even R&B music from downtown pubs to breweries overflowing with action. Catch a concert overlooking crystal waters, or find yourself right in the middle of a jazz festival! We’ll give you the lowdown on where the music is happening and when. 

P-2's Irish Pub Summer Music Series

A charming downtown pub, good beer, and top-notch live music. It doesn’t get much better than this. P-2’s Irish Pub is hosting live music all throughout the season, hosting musicians like FUSION, Northern Borne, Midnight Stargazers, and Johnathan Foster, just to name a few! The pub even has its own mini-bandshell on the property, making for memorable nights sipping and listening to good music.

Raquette River Brewing 

Tupper Lake’s famous microbrewery is the perfect spot to settle down for summer nights of good music, good drinks, and a Food Truck Alley that will have you coming back for thirds and fourths (seconds are for rookies). June through August, the brewery will be hosting its live music series, including performances by Jae Stevens, On3, Moment’s Notice, and Damaged Goods.

Summer Sunset Series

On Wednesdays and Thursdays all summer long, catch a live concert paired with incredible views. Flander’s Park is home to the bandshell, a scenic venue right on the surrounding waters of Raquette Pond as you gather with blankets and lawn chairs on the grass. The best part? It’s always free, meaning you can count on good music and beautiful scenery to end your days in Tupper Lake throughout the summer!

Music at the Tupper Lake Field Day 

Mark your calendars for July 20, 2024 for the annual favorite event, Tupper Lake Field Day! The day kicks off with an exciting parade featuring a float contest, chainsaw carving auction, and a day’s worth of games to partake in!

This year, the Field Day’s theme is country. Of course that means a mechanical bull will be present, visitors can get in on some line dancing, and the music lineup is stacked. Listen and dance to performances by Junction Jam Band, Atom Ghost, and Bonfire - A Tribute to AC/DC! After the music, stay for the fireworks show to end the night.

Little WolfStock 4

Looking for beach-side tunes to dance away on the sand? Little Wolfstock is back for another year at Little Wolf Beach on August 3, 2024! While technically a 3-decade high school reunion is the cause for celebration, the event is free and open to the public. So if you happen to be on an evening stroll, or were already parked at the beach tanning all day, you can join in the fun and dance the night away, and maybe even meet some graduates!

Rock on the Rock 

For a concert unique to the waters of Tupper Lake, boat to Rock on the Rock! Yep, you can only access the event via boat, mostly due to the fact that the concert is on a rock in the middle of the lake. Spectators can stay right in their boats as several acts perform, and enjoy a beautiful day on Tupper Lake at undoubtedly one of the most unique venues of the year.
