The constant ebb and flow of the Gulf tides create a natural rhythm here, and that tempo certainly carries over into 30A’s passion for live music.

Whether it’s an outdoor concert featuring regional headliners, an impromptu celebrity jam session at Red Bar, or just another laid-back night listening to our world-class local talent, South Walton’s music scene is as bright as the white sands on its shores. features the area’s most comprehensive live music calendar… although hey, if we’re missing something, please be sure to let us know! It’s free.

There are also free 30A iPhone and 30A Android apps, to put South Walton’s daily menu of live music right in your clapping hands.

For vintage vinyl fans, you should really check out Central Square Records in Seaside, and true music lovers will not miss the annual 30A Songwriters Festival held every January. It’s an incredible and unique live music experience.
