If you’re like me, you’ll be staying around campus or heading to an internship near a big city. Will you get bored and need some entertainment? Possibly. Lucky for you, I’m in the same boat. The only difference is that I have a paddle, and I’m willing to share it with you.
If you’re staying near campus there are PLENTY of things to do, many of which have to do with musical events. The Lafayette/West Lafayette has this wonderful page of events for you to look at for local things. The page allows you to input different dates that you’re looking for events (not only concerts, but many other things as well). It then generates a page of events with details, times, prices, etc. It’s pretty niffy.
Not more than two hours from campus is the wonderful capital of Indiana. Indianapolis also has a nice line up concerts for us this summer. Live nation is a great website to find concerts and ticket prices. Just input the city, Indianapolis, or where ever else you may be and a list of concerts and dates will be just within your reach. The Klipsch Music Center in Noblesville, IN also has a great line up of concerts for us.
If you’re feeling like taking a little road trip, maybe crossing the state line into Illinois, Chicago also has some great concerts in store for us this summer. You can look up the different events taking place or a different line up of concerts.
The best thing about these sites and cities is that there are a wide variety of musicians and bands playing at each throughout the entire summer. There is literally something for everyone to enjoy. So take advantage of these wonderful opportunities and check out a concert of festival this summer.
