MPAC Announces 2021 Summer Drive-in Concert Lineup

(MORRISTOWN, NJ) -- Mayo Performing Arts Center will stage six drive in concerts at Fosterfields Living Historical Farm in Morris Township between June and August. The series kicks off June 17 with The Nerds and includes concerts by The Sensational Soul Cruisers, The Jersey Tenors, and tributes to Lynyrd Skynyrd, Billy Joel, and Yacht Rock.

The concerts, held in partnership with Morris County Park Commission, mark the second summer MPAC has held outdoor concerts at Fosterfields. Tickets for all events go on sale April 9. Tickets are $100-$125 per carload.  Tickets must be purchased in advance online or by calling 973-539-8008. No tickets will be sold at the gate.

"We are thrilled to be working with Morris County Park Commission again to stage outdoor concerts against the beautiful backdrop of Fosterfields Living Historical Farm," said Allison Larena, President and CEO, MPAC. "We look forward to a great summer of rock and pop music presented in a safe environment for families to enjoy a terrific and fun evening of music."

The Fosterfields site will be able to accommodate approximately 175 cars that will be spaced out with social distancing guidelines. Prevailing New Jersey regulations for outdoor events will determine whether or not patrons will be able to sit outside of their vehicles.

The MPAC Summer Drive in Concert series is sponsored by Trend Motors.
