The Drake is a one-of-a-kind, world class performing arts venue in the heart of downtown Amherst, MA.

Our impeccably curated lineup brings legendary and emerging musical artists to the stage from across the globe and from our own backyard.

The Drake is more than a music venue - from dance to comedy, spoken word to stage, open mic nights to local story-telling, The Drake is the region’s premier gathering place for the cross-cultural exchange of the arts - a place where the cultural and artistic richness of our communities can be lifted up, expanded, and embraced.
