That’s A Wrap! A By-The-Numbers Look At Our Summer Concert Series

It’s hard to believe another Summer Concert Series is here and gone. Seems like just yesterday fans came from all over to jump start their summer by rocking out with the first concert of the season, Luke Bryan. From the employees to the fans, the same sentiment was heard time and again; this was a summer to remember. Hersheypark Stadium welcomed some of the top touring acts in the music industry, from country to pop to rock and everything in between.

They say it takes a village. Without the tireless efforts from our employees and volunteers, to the unending support from the fans, this summer would not have been as successful (or fun). To officially wrap up the Summer Concert Series with a nice bow, we thought it would be fun (and interesting) to gather some staggering numbers and share them with you. After all, you’re the contributors to these figures. Do they surprise you? They sure did surprise us!

Thanks for making 2016 the most attended Summer Concert Series, and one to be talked about for years to come. Thank YOU for partying with us, singing with us and just having fun. Until we meet again next summer…..
