The Avett Brothers return to Bethlehem to close out Musikfest.

It’s not every day that your favorite band hits the road for a tour. And, it’s definitely not every day that they happen to make a stop in the town where you live. But if you’re a fan of the Avett Brothers like I am, you’re lucky enough to have them make an appearance twice within the last two years at Musikfest.

This year, the Avett Brothers returned to close out Musikfest 2016 as part of a tour supporting their new album True Sadness. With support from Langhorne Slim, a native of Langhorne, PA, the night promised to be full of music that would hit every emotion, from tugging at your heart strings to stomping and clapping as you dance in the aisles.

Don Henley brings classic rock to Musikfest.

Musikfest. Don Henley. Need I say more? The Eagles music mastermind put on one incredible show to what seemed to be a sold-out crowd Wednesday night at the Sands Steel Stage at Musikfest in Bethlehem.

It was a balmy 90-plus degrees, with humidity making it feel like it was close to 100, but that didn’t stop the fans from moving to the music of this nearly 70-year old performer. Henley played for nearly two and a half hours adorned with jeans, a rolled up button down shirt, and his iconic vest.

Electricity! The show that could’ve been.

When a concert review starts with a weather update… well, not good! Inclement weather had been threatening the Musikfest all day long yesterday. This threat was real. However, after warm up band Chevelle took the Sands Steel Stage last night, everyone in attendance felt all would be alright on this night. Chevelle was terrific… and the lightening? Nah… we’re good! The lightening lightshow steadily flashing and creeping in would only enhance the atmosphere.

Boston brings their 40th anniversary tour to Musikfest.

It was More Than A Feeling as the crowd scurried into the main entrance at the Sands Steel Stage on Tuesday night.  As we weaved in and out of the lines with a full mug in hand the smiles kept growing. 

Inside the gate the lines were not long and there were plenty of food and beverage options. The bathrooms were very clean with attentive ushers giving out hand sanitizer wipes. The sections were labeled clearly and there were plenty of helping hands to assist you in finding your seat.

Dierks Bentley rocks Musikfest.

I’ve been to my fair share of concerts over the years. In fact, I always say that I will always go see any show just because I love live music so much. But, country is one thing that I just don’t get into. Thanks to the influence of a country-loving friend, I can now check ‘attend a country concert’ off my bucket list!

Dierks Bentley took to the Sands Steel Stage at Musikfest on Sunday, August 7 to a full house. Cowboy boots were in full abundance as the crowd prepared for a fun evening set amongst the stunning blast furnaces of Bethlehem Steel.

Darius Rucker performed to a sold out crowd at Musikfest.

Darius Rucker’s performance at Musikfest was an incredible show for truly everyone, from country lovers to the ‘haters.’ I’ve never been the biggest country fan, but Darius Rucker changed that for me – something I never thought I’d say. Admittedly, I only knew his hit “Wagon Wheel,” but after the concert I raced home to download more of his music.
