Under the Stars

Concerts Under the Stars is an immersive full-dome concert experience curated by the Grand Rapids Public Museum’s Roger B. Chaffee Planetarium, highlighting local musicians and visual artists. Local West Michigan bands will perform their music, enhanced by original video art projected onto the seated Planetarium’s 50-foot dome. Upcoming local visual artists collaborate with the musicians to weave together an exclusive immersive concert experience. Concerts Under the Stars has quickly become a staple of the underground West Michigan music scene. Visitors are invited to explore the Museum’s first two floors of exhibits during the cocktail hour before the concert. 

Each show begins at 7:30 p.m. with doors opening at 6:30 p.m. Performers will play two sets with a short intermission in between. Refreshments, beer, and other beverages will be available for purchase. Tickets are $20, with discounted pricing of $16 for GRPM members.

Please be aware that shows may contain bright lights or dizzying visuals.
