Outdoor concerts at the wakehouse are sort of a surreal experience. International music superstars like Snoop Dogg, Too Short, and Shooter Jennings, and legendary rock bands like Everclear, Alien Ant Farm, and Hawthorne Heights have performed on the lawn for thousands of concert lovers with the Kings River flowing immediately behind the stage, in a small town of only 25,000. Bands and music artists love performing at the Wakehouse, whether outdoors on the large stage with huge speaker arrays and laser light shows for a thousand people, or on the intimate indoor stage for 30 diners. The Wakehouse is a great place for emerging local artists to perform - ask Patrick Contreras, Lance Rodriguez, Kat, White Glove Service, and many more.
