Originally dubbed the Les Schwab Amphitheater until a name change this past year, the venue has seen enormous growth over the past 20 years of its existence, according to Beau Eastes, marketing director at Old Mill District and Hayden Homes Amphitheater. When Eastes started in 2017, Hayden Homes hosted 12 shows. In 2022, the venue hosted 52. After securing a partnership with Live Nation in 2021, along with the increase in the number of shows, it has been able to secure bigger shows, announcing release dates earlier and earlier. 

"Being able to release dates earlier than before speaks to the experience that artists are having at our venue," Eastes said. "Right in the heart of town on the river, it's a pretty amazing place for not just concertgoers, but the performers as well."

The amphitheater has brought in a variety of music artists across a wide range of genres to Central Oregon, from country to folk to rock to electronic to stand-up comedy.

"We're getting artists that, if they're gonna stop in Oregon, and they're only gonna play one place in Oregon, they're choosing our venue over others," Eastes said. 

Among the shows this past season, Hayden Homes hosted its first full production EDM concert with headliner Odesza and supporting act Sylvan Esso. It was the only venue in Oregon where the tour performed. 

This year the venue also hosted several artists for multiple nights, something it's only done once in the 20 years prior to this past season. Kenny Chesney, The Chicks and Thomas Rhett each headlined two shows at Hayden Homes in 2022. 

Behind each concert are over 800 people who make the shows run smoothly, from the marketing team to stage production to the front of the house to sales to food vendors.

"It's a community wide effort to put on these world-class shows," Eastes said. "We're so thankful that there are so many people excited to be part of it. We could not put on these shows without the amazing workforce we have."
