Victoria has a lively music scene – great bands are always coming through town and putting on unforgettable performances. Although our capital city is known for natural landscapes and historic attractions, it is also a draw for world-class entertainment. In addition, our local acts are top-notch! Visit Victoria not only for our popular attractions, but for a whole host of upcoming first-rate musical events and performances .


Logan’s Pub has been at the epicentre of Victoria’s music scene for decades now. Looking at their list of scheduled events, there is something going on every night of the week. Of particular note is the Black Sheep Comedy open mic on Tuesday, which features some of Victoria’s funniest people performing for absolutely free, and then there's Hootenanny on Sunday afternoons! The Hootenanny is an afternoon open mic that’s been running for YEARS, and it has long been the city’s most popular hangout for local musicians. Hosted by Victoria’s own Carolyn Mark, this is THE perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon in Victoria!


Lucky Bar is the coolest bar in town. If you want to see bands who are on the verge of leaving a mark on the national scene, take a look at Lucky Bar’s list of scheduled acts. Located on Yates Street, this isn’t the biggest venue in town (typically standing room only), but its' elevated stage and excellent sound systems guarantees a great concert-going experience with rising stars!


The Alix Goolden Hall is a beautiful church that has been converted to a concert hall, transforming a typical concert into beautiful, spiritual experiences. This elegant setting, with 40-foot vaulted ceilings and superb natural acoustics, is the perfect venue to view a string quartet or an intimate concert featuring world famous artists. Past performers include major stars such as Bruce Cockburn, Emmylou Harris, Shakey Graves, and Ryan Adams. You'll be captivated by the unique ambience of the performance hall, particularly when light pours through the intricate stain-glass windows, bathing the stage with an ethereal glow. Check out the lineup of upcoming events today!
