Stadiums with massive jumbotrons and uncomfortable, stiff plastic seats don’t always produce the most appealing atmosphere while anticipating your idol’s musical performance. Just in time for music festival season, CheapTickets has singled out five of the most noteworthy outdoor concert venues that have been transformed into works of art or incorporated into their breathtaking surroundings. While watching the performance is everyone’s top priority, the location and design concept of these venues will have fans do more than just tapping their feet to the beat.
CheapTickets has already done the nitty gritty work and compiled hotel and travel costs to make it an easy venture to these hot spots. With summer just around the corner, these works of art reveal what a little imagination can accomplish to experience an artistic, musical masterpiece.
