Other attractions include a Ferris wheel and plenty of local eateries that offer everything from “gluten-free to vegan to good old-fashioned corn dogs.” The event began in 1994 and is produced by Live Nation.
“This year we are expanding the festival to two full days by moving to Saturday and Sunday,” Live Nation president Peter Conlon said. “This will ensure patrons can enjoy the maximum music, food and fun they can handle. We will also be returning to an initial ticket price of $125 for a 2-Day General admission ticket. This is by far the most affordable festival in the country for this level of talent.”
Presales for Citi cardmembers are on sale now. General onsales begin June 24 at 10 a.m. EST. Visit MusicMidtown.com for more information.
