Although the PNE will look a little different in its 111th year, rest assured concerts are making a comeback.

The fair has announced its official summer concert series and the focus is on local artists. As the PNE returns, there won’t be large crowd or seats, instead a stage will be set up in the Revel District with live music being offered through the day.

Check out the full list below and be sure to grab tickets the days your favourite artists will be playing.
