Burl's Creek Plans Mega Concerts

Republic Live, producers of the WayHome Music & Arts Festival and Boots & Hearts at the Burl's Creek Event Grounds outside of Orillia, ON, have announced plans to bring mega-concerts to the site. At a town hall-style meeting this week, events executive director Shannon McNevan told an audience that two concert bowls have been built on the 700-acre park that can accommodate 70,000 and 40,000 concert fans respectively. This summer, Burl’s Creek is hosting 40K country-music fans for Boots & Hearts from August 6th to 9th, and 35K people for WayHome Music and Arts Festival, running July 24th to 26th. According to a report in Orillia Today, McNevan suggested the park could become the favoured site for artists who currently play at Toronto venues such as Molson Canadian Amphitheatre (16,000 capacity) and the Rogers Centre (55,000 concert capacity).
