Some of our more popular Summer Sounds concerts require a few extra details for attendees. Parking and shuttles are provided by Crystal Mountain, and we recommend securing tickets beforehand as there may be little-to-no available seats at the door.

Note: As of noon today, August 5, we still have a few tickets remaining for the Joshua Davis concert tonight. Please invite a friend to purchase one of these tickets online before 4:30pm: Buy Tickets Here or call: 231-378-4963
