If there's one thing I can attest to, it's how great concerts are at Hersheypark Stadium. While I've only been a few, I've always had a magical time.

First of all as a huge Jonas Brothers fan, I've seen them every time at Hersheypark Stadium and that was the stadium I was at when I met them. Even though the brothers aren't on tour this year, there are plenty of other great acts coming to Hersheypark Stadium.

I also wanted to show some love to the stadium as it's celebrating being open for 85 years. You can find all the info in the post shared by the HersheyPa website. However, I was shocked to learn that Hersheypark Stadium wasn't intended solely for concerts at first as it was used for sporting events including football games and even, racing events.

The other thing I found most interesting is that the stadium's highest-grossing show was in 2022 and it was for Lady Gaga. It's clear Mother Monster has her fans and so do The Rolling Stones, Def Leppard/ Motley Crue, Paul McCartney, and Guns N' Roses.

Hersheypark Stadium has an incredible concert lineup for 2024.

Aside from just being a great venue, Hersheypark Stadium also attracts some big names and 2024 is no different. Already this year, Hersheypark Stadium has hosted Morgan Wallen with Nate Smith and Lauren Watkins. No doubt that concert was completely packed and full of so many country music fans.

That's just the start of Hersheypark Stadium's concert season as on June 15th, Stevie Nicks will be performing. On June 28th, HPS will be hosting Hootie and the Blowfish who are joined by Edwin McCain and Collective Soul. While June is a pretty quiet month for Hersheypark Stadium, things really kick off in July.

On July 4th, Justin Timberlake will take the stage on his Forget Tomorrow World Tour. No doubt that's going to be a packed show. We can only hope the sweetest stadium on Earth decides to host NSYNC when they announce a reunion tour. Janet Jackson hits the stage on July 6th and she is joined by Nelly. Those two are bound to put on an amazing show.

The Outlaw Music Festival rolls into town on July 7th featuring some talented artists such as Willie Nelson, Allison Krauss, and Bob Dylan among others. Rounding out July, the stadium is hosting the Foo Fighters along with The Hives and Amyl and the Sniffers on July 23rd. The final show for July is on July 25th and that's Journey and Def Leppard with The Steve Miller Band.

August proves to be another packed month for Hersheypark Stadium as there are concerts for fans of all ages. First on August 2nd is Five Finger Death Punch who are joined by Marilyn Manson and Slaughter to Prevail. Then on August 3rd, you can enjoy New Kids on the Block with Paula Abdul and DJ Jazzy Jeff. Skipping ahead to August 10th, Hersheypark Stadium is welcoming Green Day, Smashing Pumpkins, Rancid and The Linda Lindas.

The month finishes with 2 concerts back-to-back. First is Creed with 3 Doors Down and Finger Eleven on August 23rd. The following night on August 24th, Pitbull and T-Pain take the stage. Lastly, on October 1st, you can head to Hersheypark Stadium to see P!NK, Sheryl Crow, The Script, and KidCutUp. I don't know about you, but it feels like there are plenty of concerts for fans of all music to enjoy at Hersheypark Stadium.
