This year, let us throw the party! Get ready for a Fourth of July celebration: Long Play Summerfest coming to the Rockford area July 1-4, 2021.
Long Play Summerfest will be held at Rivet’s Stadium in Loves Park, Illinois and Parking is FREE!
We have spent the past 18 months putting together an unbelievable weekend of KICK-ASS Bands! We are so excited about our announcement of our bands on April 30th. Set your calendars and get vaxxed! Long Play Summerfest is Coming! *Ticket’s will go on sale at 10:00 am April 30th.
The best area restaurants will be grilling up your favorites in our Grill Pit. Mouth-watering burgers with cheese dripping off the sides and fries. Add some guacamole or bacon… we got ya covered! Plus, our coolers will be filled with plenty of ice-cold beer, sangria, wine, and more!
BOOM! Cap the night off with a private fireworks display just for our attendees! Right before our Headliners take the stage, we will ignite the sky with amazing fireworks shows – Every Night! Can’t celebrate the 4th without FIREWORKS. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday Nights!
Plus… our Awesome Carnival filled with SPECTACULAR RIDES and an amazing Midway! See Below.
Attendees are invited to enjoy the 4th with StarEvents! We expect a sell-out due to restricted capacity. Urgh! We have room for a bunch, but it will be more intimate than in future years. Make sure to plan early. This is the ONLY SUMMER FESTIVAL this early. Buy now and thank us later!
Come out on Thursday for our “Sneak-Peak” day at 3:00 pm and enjoy a baseball game! The RIVETS vs. Battle Creek. Play Ball! We will open the Carnival and Midway on Thursday for all attendees going to the game! Afterward, we have a live band playing and will enjoy a summer evening out. Open til’ 11:00 pm.
After Thursday’s event, the stadium will be transformed into Long Play Summerfest. We add our Main Stage to Center Field and pack the rest of the stadium with the smells of BBQ, beverages, and people joining their friends and families for a reunion like no other!
