NightLife’s summer music series returns!
Inspired by science and powered by sound, the Academy will transform into an oasis of music and art on one special night per month with the NightLife LIVE summer music series (as part of our weekly Thursday night programming).

Catch live performances on the outdoor West Garden stage as the greenest museum on the planet transforms into one of SF's most unique music venues. Experience interactive art installations, out-of-this-world video projections, science side shows, and more—all while exploring cutting-edge exhibits and marveling at 38,000 live animals.


Headliner—8:45-9:45 pm
Opening Band—7:45-8:30 pm
Outdoor DJs—6:00-7:45 pm
