A Saratoga Performing Arts Center highlight


By 807 Union St. Staff

Saratoga Performing Arts Center (SPAC) is a spring and summer venue for the Capital District of New York. It is located in the historic Saratoga Spa State Park.

Every year, SPAC hosts mainstream groups such as Dave Matthews Band, Coldplay, O.A.R. and Chicago. This year, the Dave Matthews Band returns after a year hiatus from Saratoga. Other performances will include Drake, accompanied by J. Cole, The Zac Brown Band, a blast from the past with the Beach Boys and Jason Mraz.

The venue can hold over 15,000 people, and often times sells out through the summer months, with crowds amassing over 30,000 people.

The most popular band to come seems to be the Dave Matthews Band, which has sold out 10 performances at the venue. But it seems no matter who the band is, thousands of fans pay to see them play. Also, some people choose to set-up their lawn chairs to listen outside the gates of the venue. No matter what, SPAC remains a popular destination for locals during the summer months.
