Heat Indexes Nearing 100 Degrees This Weekend For Concerts

July 19, 2019

It's going to be a hot one in Western New York this weekend.  With temperatures Friday & Saturday pushing 90 degrees, and heat indexes nearing the century (100 degree) mark, it's not necessarily ideal weather for a concert.

Darien Lake Amphitheater & Live Nation are taking extra precautions this weekend in order to help keep concert goers safe this Friday (Thomas Rhett) and Saturday (311/Dirty Heads/Interrupters/Dreamers) at the shows. 

A statement from Live Nation reads:

"With temperatures expected to reach above 90 degrees, we’re taking extra precaution to keep attendees safe at Darien Lake Amphitheater this weekend during the heat advisories on Friday & Saturday. To help beat the heat, the venue is setting up misting tents inside both entrance gates. In addition, we’re allowing guests to bring as many factory sealed plastic water bottles they’d like into the amphitheater. We encourage guests to stay hydrated all evening by utilizing the multiple free water stations located throughout the venue."

It's gonna be hot out there #AltFamily  Be safe, stay hydrated.
