When we think of summer in Buffalo, one of the first things that come to mind is outdoor concerts and festivals. We know it’s still February, but the floodgates have opened, and the summer concert announcements have begun. We know Buffalo is a beautiful place for summer music and we’re excited for all the shows there are to come! Artpark, in Lewiston, is one of our favorite destination concert venues. It feels like a small city with ample food and merchandise to look at and explore, in addition to amazing bands, of course. Also, who could forget about the Artpark sunsets right on the Niagara Gorge?

 This year, Artpark’s lineup is an eclectic mix of alternative rock, singer-songwriters, Michael Franti & Spearhead’s brand of “soul rock,” and the classic Barenaked Ladies. Artpark will also have a taste of Beatlemania with the beloved “Rain: A Tribute To The Beatles,” emulating the foursome that rocked the music world and paved the way for so much of the music that we love today.

To get us forward-looking and optimistic, there are only 90 until Artpark’s first concert, but who’s counting. The Avett Brothers, a folk-rock band from North Carolina will kick off the season on May 21 on the intimate Mainstage Theater stage. Then on May 25, the Amphitheater will come alive with Mt. Joy, an indie rock band based in Los Angeles that sings the hit song “Silver Lining.” It’ll be the outdoor music we’ve been pining over for months.

Here is Artpark’s lineup so far, so that you can prepare for your favorite bands. Happy concert schedule planning!
