Concerts not just on Wednesdays anymore

The "Coors Light" series at Artpark has been one of summer's most popular outdoor music events in the Western New York region for the past decade. In a new partnership with Artpark & Company, Buffalo-based promoters Funtime Presents will produce up to six "Coors Light Concerts at Artpark." The series will feature contemporary acts with an aim of expanding on Artpark's celebrated slate of outdoor summer programming in Lewiston.

Artpark and Funtime on Monday announced the first concert of the new "Coors Light Concerts at Artpark" series scheduled for Artpark's Outdoor Amphitheater. 311 will appear in concert on Monday, July 10, at the Amphitheater stage as part of WEDG-FM 103.3 "The Edge" "Edgefest: The Series." Also on the bill will be special guests New Politics and The Skints.

311 tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, March 17. Tickets are $40 and will be available online at tickets.com and artpark.net, by phone at 1-888-223-6000, or in person at the Artpark box office (Winter hours: 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays). Ticket prices include facility fee; other fees apply for online and phone orders.

The new "Coors Light Concerts at Artpark" will replace Artpark's previous "Coors Light Wednesdays" series with shows spread out through the summer concert season on different nights of the week, and encompassing a wide array of some of the most acclaimed and prominent acts in contemporary music. 

Artpark has enjoyed a long, successful relationship with Funtime Presents over the past decade, working together to enhance the Artpark season schedule of top international music legends and performances.

In addition to curating the new "Coors Light Concerts at Artpark" series, Funtime Presents will continue to produce shows at Artpark's Mainstage Theater.
