We came here in June 2016 for the Cape Cod Clam Chowder Festival. The event was awesome beer and all the clam chowder that you want to try. You can buy tickets at the door or ahead of time. I would recommend buying them ahead then picking them up either at the location or printing them at home. Basically you... More

I frequent this venue as much as possible during the Summer. They have a great varied selection of performers during the Summer. Everything from theater productions to comedians & concerts. They even have a few small festivals. The venue is small & there isn't a bad seat in the house. The stage is circular & rotates throughout the entire production.... More

This is a wonderful venue for music and shows! Not a bad seat in the house...only 22 rows so it feels up close and personal. Worth the drive from New Jersey! Reasonably priced!

Great talent and all seats are good. The stage turns so everyone gets to see the performers at all angles. The staff is organized and helpful. Drinks are available outside the tent. The big problem comes when the loud performers are there. It is so loud that your ears will be ringing and you will be a little deaf after.... More

The melody tent is one of my favourite summer venues for concerts. There are no bad seats, and you are always close to the performers on the rotating stage under the tent. This year we saw Bonnie Raitt and ZZ top - both superb!

CCMT value differs year by year. Thankfully the focus on faux country acts has relaxed this year. A great, small venue hosting R & R hall of fame acts like Heart, Bonnie Raitt, ZZ top this year. Volunteer workers are fine and helpful. Beer is still way overpriced (9$). Have a drink across the street and save some money. Word... More

We enjoyed The Temptations and The Four Tops last night at the Cape Cod Melody Tent in Hyannis, Massachusetts. It is very similar to it's sister location (South Shore Music Tent) in Cohasset.

As the name suggests, it is a real tent. Typical stadium seats as you would find in any concert venue. The tent is round with a revolving stage in the middle, for smaller shows the stage is stationary, and they block off backstage. Either way, not a bad seat in the house. Nice grounds outside of the tent, with a... More
