Breweries are a great spot to listen to live music. There is no set schedule, so be sure to head to each individual website or social media page to find out who is playing when and where. The Coal Pit, located outside Incendiary, is a popular place for concerts. Most of the live music at breweries are free, but occasionally some charge an entrance fee.

We are lucky to have many wineries and vineyards within 30 minutes of Winston-Salem. We promise there is at least one vineyard hosting live music on any given weekend. Check out our list of vineyards to find who is playing where. Remember that vineyards close early, so music might start and end earlier than bars and breweries.
