Live Music Events In The Sioux Falls Area 7/23-7/31

The following is a list of live music events happening in and around the Sioux Falls area until the end of July (Sunday, July 23rd to Monday, July 31st). This list is a compilation of local and touring acts and contains a wide variety of genres. The venues vary. If you are a musician(individual, group, or band), promoter, venue, or fan that would like an event added to this list in the future, please contact me at and put “Sioux Falls Music Calendar” in the subject area. Please include a brief description of the event as well as links to the event.

I hope to make this a regular article to bring more awareness of the live music happening around the area. As a community, we can bring fantastic local music to the public in the hopes of connecting with others who wish to be more informed about these kinds of events. Sioux Falls and the surrounding towns have no shortage of talented musical artists in genres to please everyone. I will do my best to post whether an event has a cover charge or is free. Thank you to all the artists, venues, and promoters who make these shows possible.
