The 2021 Hump Day Concert Series will continue free concerts on Wednesday evenings from 7-9 p.m. through August 25, excluding June 16, at the Athletic Complex at the Voice of America MetroPark.

“The high-energy musicians scheduled to perform span a variety of music genres. The concerts will be held at the Voice of America MetroPark Athletic Complex. They are free and open to all,” said Becky Vanderpool, senior manager of park connections of MetroParks of Butler County.

Returning fan favorites will include Lisa Biales, The McCartney Project, Vinyl Sunshine, Model Behavior, Ryan Broshear, Dat Band, Stagger Lee, The Sunburners, Amy Newhart, KAVAN and Saffire Express.

“Most exciting for 2021 is the return of the concert series. It was dearly missed by both park customer/owners and MetroParks in 2020 and to have them return for 2021 is very exciting,” Vanderpool said.

Food and beverages will be available for purchase from the concession stand at the UC Health Field House. Outside food and beverages are welcome. Alcoholic beverages will not be available and are not permitted to be brought into the park.

A “Return to Summer Celebration” will be part of the June 23 concert with a free ice cream social for all. Watch for more details to come.

“Voice of America MetroPark offers a beautiful setting for many types of activities. Whether concertgoers come to the park just in time for the concert or come early to enjoy a walk around the park, they are sure to enjoy time outdoors,” said Chad Smith, deputy director, MetroParks of Butler County.

He said with the non-stop schedules of everyday life, the concerts offer a place to get outside on a summer night and relax with family and friends.

Concerts are weather dependent. Cancellations due to weather will be shared in the News & Alerts section at no later than 3 p.m. on the concert dates. MetroParks will be following current health department recommendations and guidelines to offer a safe enjoyable experience for all.
