Every Outdoor Summer Concert in Indianapolis, in One Calendar

Published On 04/14/2016 Published On 04/14/2016

Since you’re (almost) done drinking all those spring beers we told you about, it’s time to start making plans for the summertime. Luckily, there's always something to do in and around Indianapolis, but we’re focusing on the outdoor summer concerts you most definitely shouldn't miss. And seeing as these things are nearly as common as mosquitoes, you should start your planning NOW.
