Event description
Join Tab Benoit for a one-of-a-kind concert experience 333 feet underground in the spectacular Volcano Room!

About this event

Welcome to Tennessee’s largest show cave. Conveniently located between Nashville, Chattanooga, and Gatlinburg, Cumberland Caverns Live offers a one-of-a-kind concert experience!

Located 333 feet below ground, concerts are hosted in The Volcano Room, a natural amphitheater. Here water and time entwined many years ago to create one of the most acoustically pure natural spaces on earth. No man-made sound reaches the Volcano Room and the living rock hued amid the eons is jagged and uneven, providing limited echo. The primordial silence and perpetual darkness give way to the sounds of the finest music on earth. Regardless of outside temperature, the Volcano Room is a constant 56 degrees with 99% humidity.

We recommend wearing athletic-style shoes best-suited for walking or hiking (no sandals/flip flops). Some guests feel cool immediately upon entering the cave but warm up after a few minutes of moving around. Once you are seated for your concert it can feel quite cool, you may want to bring a thin, long sleeve shirt or jacket. The walk from the parking lot to the mouth of the cave is a little under 1/4 mile, and then once inside the cave another ~1/4 mile to The Volcano Room.

Please note: The cave, and the concert venue in the cave, are not handicap accessible due to the uneven pathways, stairs, steep uphill and downhill slopes, and there are some areas that do not have handrails. Strollers, walkers, wheelchairs, etc., will not make it through the cave and we cannot shuttle guests to or from the cave. We strive to keep the cave as natural as possible, but make it safe for our guests to enjoy.
