Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the gate Saturday.
Music will run non-stop at two different stage areas and the music and will be staggered by 15 minutes per area so that there is never a dull moment or lull in the entertainment. The main stage area for bands will be in the infield of the velodrome between the third and and fourth turns. Another smaller and more laid back performance tent will be at the entrance and food court area of the facility.
The Victory beer garden will be set up in the rider warm up area in turns one and two. Food vendors will also be located in that area. Fans are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets with them to the concert.
