If there’s anything we learned from the pandemic, it’s that musicians are passionate. They continued to perform for us, albeit in a new realm: livestreaming.

Now that the pandemic is calming, singers like Justin Bieber, Barenaked Ladies, AJR, Calum Scott and Bastille have returned to stages.

Welcome to Phoenix.org’s summer music guide. Have a look here and buy tickets to support the musicians who lifted our spirits during the pandemic.
