The Rock Yard outdoor concert stage is an amphitheater-style area featuring two side-by-side stages holding audiences of more than 3,000 passionate music fans. It was the first venue in the Palm Springs area to bring music fans free, live, rock shows every weekend. At 7:30 p.m., the full-throttle rock music fires up with a cover band to get audience members out of their seats. At 9 p.m., the tribute band takes over and plays audience favorites. At 10:30 p.m, the cover band comes back out and continues the live music until midnight. There is no cover charge and guests must be 18 and older to rock.
