If you’re someone who loves going to concerts, then this last year must have been tough on you. But thankfully, things are starting to open up and concerts are already getting rescheduled in 2021. But which concerts should you go to? Normally the most important thing is the band, but sometimes the venue is just as crucial for a good show. If sound quality is important to you, these outdoor venues sound so good that it’ll be worth traveling to see a show there.

Dalhalla, Sweden

Thanks to a meteorite that crashed into Sweden 377 million years ago, forming Lake Siljan, the acoustics of this venue offer one of the greatest sounds in the world. If that’s not enough, people who attend the concerts there can actually swim in the lake if they so choose!

Red Rocks, Morrison, Colorado

Red Rocks is one of the most popular venues in America and has been for some time now. First off, the acoustics are perfect and the sound quality is off the charts. But in addition to all that, the unique rocky structure surrounding the venue will make any show a visually aesthetic treat to be at.

Théâtre Antique D’Orange, Provence, France

This theatre is over 2,000 years old and even a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Built by first Roman Emperor Augustus back in first century AD, it’s managed to survive ever since—and host some incredible concerts in the process.
