Going Green Guide: 2023 Concert Season at KettleHouse Amphitheater


As we eagerly anticipate the start of the 2023 Concert Season at the KettleHouse Amphitheater, it’s important that we all keep in mind our responsibility to care for the natural beauty that surrounds us.

That’s why we’ve put together a handy Going Green Guide that highlights some simple steps we can take to be eco-conscious concertgoers. So, let’s dive into some easy and effective ways to reduce our impact on the environment while enjoying some amazing live music this summer!


Shuttle, carpool, or bike to the show.

• Shuttles are fun, easy, and very convenient. The Groove shuttle takes you from the Top Hat in Downtown Missoula to the Amp and back once the show is over. All you have to do is purchase a round trip shuttle pass and most of the work is done for you. Plus, you get to ride along with friends and fellow fans, which is a good time!

• Carpooling is more gas efficient than driving alone, but if you plan on parking in the Amp parking lot, you’ll need to purchase a parking pass. Also, please make sure you always have a sober driver. Both Uber and Lyft will make trips to and from the Amp as well.

• A bike trip from Downtown Missoula to KettleHouse Amphitheater is less than 9 miles and only takes about 45 minutes. Not to mention it’s a gorgeous ride, can save you money, and it’s a great pre-show workout! There are bike racks outside of the venue so you can lock your bike up.


Ditch the plastic.

• Bring an empty reusable bottle or steel pint cup to fill with water once you’re inside the venue. Water fill stations are located at each bar.

• If you don’t bring your own water bottle, you can purchase a recyclable canned water from the bar.


Most everything served at KettleHouse Amphitheater is compostable or recyclable.

• All of our cups, plates, cutlery, food scraps, straws, napkins, and paper towels are compostable and should go in the green compost bins.

• Cans, aluminum bottles, tickets, paper, and non-compostable plastic should go in the blue recycling bins.

• If you bring anything that’s not recyclable or compostable, please make sure it goes in the grey or black landfill bin.

• Most importantly, please abide by the “Leave No Trace” principle. Before you leave the venue, please make sure to pick up all your waste and dispose of it in the proper place, whether that’s the compost, recycling, or landfill bin.

We’re super thankful to live in such a gorgeous area with our venue located along the beautiful Blackfoot River. Let’s all do what we can to minimize waste, clean up after ourselves and keep this place in pristine condition. We sincerely appreciate everyone’s help with this. Together, we can help Missoula reach its shared goal of #ZeroByFifty.
