Pine Creek Lodge, tucked in the pines south of Livingston, MT, is an intimate, one-of-a-kind music venue featuring outstanding regional bluegrass, jam, country, and rock bands. With its magical setting beside a babbling creek with majestic mountain views; unique food truck-style dining options; creative selection of local and domestic beer and wine; and inclusive atmosphere (kids and dogs welcome!), Pine Creek Lodge is an ideal destination for enjoying live music under the stars.
This local icon, originally built in 1946, has changed over the years but still maintains its rustic-but-comfortable atmosphere. Today, the property includes a half-dozen rental cabins made from renovated shipping containers, several tent sites, and a restaurant serving salads, burgers, tacos, and more. But the ultimate draw is Pine Creek Lodge’s one-of-a-kind music venue, which has become a can’t-miss entertainment destination for locals and tourists alike.
In the summer months, the lodge offers a variety of shows on the outdoor Main Stage (capacity 1,000 people) and Beer Garden Stage (capacity 200 people). In the past, this intimate venue has featured musicians and bands including Bruce Hornsby, The Samples, Robert Earl Keen, Yonder Mountain String Band, Leftover Salmon, and Trout Steak Revival.
In summer 2022, John Mayer tapped Bob Weir and Dave Chappelle to play several flood relief benefit concerts at Pine Creek Lodge, with proceeds going toward those impacted by the historic flooding of the Yellowstone River in June 2022. Called “Rise for the River,” the three benefit shows were hosted by Mayer and raised money to support the local Montana community where he has lived part-time for many years. As Mayer expressed in a statement, “I want to help give love and strength to a community that has always given me the same.”
For information on upcoming shows, visit Pine Creek Lodge. All tickets are general admission, and there are no seats, so you are encouraged to bring your own chair or picnic blanket. Once you’ve settled in, you can spend an unforgettable evening dancing to live music, sipping cocktails on the patio, or connect with friends and family in the crisp Montana air.
