UPDATE 7/24/20: The show will go on… 𝒗𝒊𝒓𝒕𝒖𝒂𝒍𝒍𝒚! We know you guys have missed the Sounds of Summer concerts as much as we have. That’s why we are excited to announce that while it still isn’t safe to see the concerts in person – we’re bringing the bands – to you!
That’s right. Beginning July 30, we will start live-streaming some very special performances from the Freight Shed. We know it’s not the same as being at the waterfront, but we think it’s the next best thing. And we really hope you’ll tune in! The bands will begin performing on a closed set at 7 p.m. and will play some of your favorite hits for a full 90 minutes.
You can watch by checking on Visit Yorktown Facebook page or tuning into the York County YouTube Channel. Watch from your phones, computers, or pull up the concert on your Smart TV and make a night of it. Everyone can enjoy a front row seat!
Be sure to mark your calendars. Without further ado – we present this year’s Virtual Sounds of Summer Line-up!
UPDATE 7/21/20: Due to the increasing numbers of COVID cases, York County once again made a decision to cancel (or at least delay) the series. This means no live performance from The Main Event Band for this Thursday, July 23.
The York County Tourism office is continuing to evaluate the rest of the season. That includes an exciting back-up plan that instead of bringing you to the music… brings the music straight to you! Please stay tuned.
Any further announcements will be posted to Visit Yorktown’s social media channels as well as www.visityorktown.org.
