The Summer Concert Series Keeps Getting Bigger at Elitch Gardens'
Posted: Apr 12th, 2016
Elitch Gardens Theme and Water Park announces yet another star-studded performance to its free-with-any-admission summer concert series! In addition to all the rides, slides, and family fun, this summer the park is offering more concerts and family entertainment than ever before. This season the concert series takes off June 11th and closes with a massive performance on August 13th.
The newest addition to this wonderful series is an awesome back-to-back double feature with Shawn Hook and Daya on Saturday, July 30.Shawn Hook's last album, 2012's Cosmonaut and the Girl, was out of this world, yielding three Top 20 hits including Every Red Light, So Close and Two Hearts Set On Fire, setting him up for a promising career. His electro-injected dance-pop earned a Juno nomination for Breakthrough Artist, a national tour with Midway State and a dedicated fan-base proudly named Hooksters.
Headlining the July 30th show will be Daya [pronunciation ["dey-uh".] This confident and creative artist drives pop music down an altogether different path - all a result of her classical piano training, multi-ethnic heritage, immense global travel and natural cleverness that's as striking as her dynamic vocal range. Her monster-hit debut single Hide Away combines simplistic synth melodies, a notorious power hook and an emotionally charged vocal and has successfully set the foundation for her self-titled EP, Daya.
Eight shows are scheduled to hit the stage throughout the season including Sabrina Carpenter on June 11th, Rachel Platten on June 18th, Intocable on June 26th, Newsboys on July 9th, and Jacob Whitesides featuring Olivia Holt and Laura Marano on July 16th, Echosmith on July 23rd, and Skillet on August 13th with more to be announced!
In addition to the summer concert series, Elitch Gardens will feature six Dive-In Movies, shown in the park's Island Kingdom Water Park, every Friday night from July 1- August 5. These movies include: Minions, Hotel Transylvania 2, The SpongeBob Movie, Star Wars the Force Awakens, The Good Dinosaur, & Inside out. Where else can you get eight free concerts, six free movies, plus unlimited
