Listen up, music lovers – from spring to fall, 2018 at Silver Dollar City is going to be jam-packed with the sweet sounds of live music as legendary performers take to the Echo Hollow® Amphitheatre stage for exclusive concerts you won’t want to miss! Here's a preview of what's to come this season.
Each year during Bluegrass & BBQ Festival, Silver Dollar City welcomes the biggest names in the genre as more than 60 bands - from Hall of Fame inductees and award-winners to breakout stars and family bands - perform on stages throughout the park, May 3 - 28. In 2018, we’re thrilled to once again host 15-Time Grammy Award-winner Ricky Skaggs for a one-time only concert in Echo Hollow® on May 27! Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder joins a stellar lineup that includes bluegrass superstars like Rhonda Vincent & The Rage, Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, Grascals, Flatt Lonesome and more.
Celebrate the start of another amazing summer with feel-good music that will get the whole family on their feet as the Summer Concert Series returns to Echo Hollow® for six incredible nights in June. The rock gets rolling on June 1 as Silver Dollar City favorites Members Only take us back to the 80s with the decade’s biggest hits.
Just Annnounced - Three Dog Night, rising to stardom with more top 10 hits than any other group from 1969 to 1974, with number 1 hits including “Mama Told Me Not To Come,” “Joy to the World,” and “Black and White,” will be performing on June 2!

Plus, there is still 1 concert announcement to go, so stay tuned to see who else will be joining the Summer Concert Series lineup on June 10.
As summer comes to a close, the sweet sounds of Southern Gospel Music fill the park during Southern Gospel Picnic presented by Humana®, August 23 – September 3. During this soulful festival you can hear Southern Gospel groups perform in venues all over the park, and for the 12 consecutive nights of the event the genre’s most beloved artists take to the Echo Hollow® stage for the Southern Gospel Nights concert series featuring The Isaacs, The Hoppers, The Booth Brothers, Jeff & Sheri Easter, Guy Penrod and more!
