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

Ottawa is a dynamic city stocked with active, creative minds. And yet, it’s sometimes difficult for both visitors and Ottawans alike to find music events happening in the city. For this reason we list all the music events we can find. From cover bands at the local pub to renown musicians touring through the city. And especially rising local stars. Bytown Sound lists it all. Above all, 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. In particular, we welcome any and all suggestions and feedback! Send us the details of the event you are playing or promoting! We invite submissions for any and all music-related events in the Ottawa area. 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. Also, we showcase live music venues around the city. Bytown Sound also publishes a Feature Friday every week. These weekly blogs highlight a local band or musician. Contact us to have your music/band featured!

Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for news on upcoming shows. Additionally, we update our calendar daily. Check back often!
