Bytown Sound is the most comprehensive calendar for listings of live music in Ottawa. Many music event websites that serve the Ottawa area focus on a particular music scene or are infrequently updated; at Bytown Sound, we include live music event listings from all genres, which are updated regularly each and every day. We try really, really hard to make sure that our calendar is as up-to-date and complete as possible, and supporting local musicians is our top priority!

Ottawa is a dynamic city stocked with active, creative minds, but it can sometimes be difficult for both visitors and Ottawans alike to find musical events happening in the city. This is why we list all the music events we can find, from cover bands at the local pub to renowned musicians touring through the city. Because we care deeply about our local scene, we also have a specific focus on rising homegrown stars. Bytown Sound lists it all, and we promise that you’ll be surprised at the sheer number of concerts in Ottawa on any given day.



Please feel free to send us a message; we live to serve your musical listing needs, so don’t hesitate to give us any and all suggestions and feedback! We invite you to submit any and all music-related events in the Ottawa area, or send us the details of the event you’re playing or promoting! Live music in Ottawa is our bag and we’re always looking to support the community. We review albums created by local musicians and promote Ottawa live shows. We also showcase live music venues around the city. Bytown Sound also publishes Feature Fridays and Artist Spotlights, highlighting a local band or musician in what’s quickly become one of our most anticipated articles. Contact us to feature your music or band!

Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for news on upcoming shows. Of course, we also update our calendar daily, so check us out early and often!
