Buck Hill Concerts Set for July

By | May 1st, 2018|Categories: Uncategorized|

Thanks to John Gessner of hometownsource.com for the write up on our Buck Concert Series coming up this July! Full article below:

Loverboy, Starship, Little Texas, Little River Band

Buck Hill, in a continuing effort to diversify its core winter business, is holding a four-day concert series July 10-13.

The Buck Concert Series will feature headliners Loverboy (July 10), Little Texas (July 11), Starship featuring Mickey Thomas (July 12) and the Little River Band (July 13).

Summer concerts are the latest attraction at the ski hill west of Interstate 35 in Burnsville, which was sold by its founders, the Stone family, in 2015 to longtime general manager Don McClure and Apple Valley architect David Solner.

In 2016 Buck Hill added a Neveplast surface for year-round skiing, snowboarding and tubing.

Last July the Burnsville City Council approved an interim use permit allowing Buck Hill to hold up to six concerts with crowds no larger than 4,500. Because of nuisance concerns from some neighbors, the council set a Nov. 2, 2018, expiration date to review the permit.

The stage will be at the bottom of the hill, which will serve as a natural amphitheater.

Buck Hill said concerts are part of “revolutionizing the year-round entertainment destination.”

“Buck Hill is the place to be if you want to be outside,” Dee Oujiri, Buck Hill’s senior director of brand and strategy, said in a March 22 news release. The business also features The Black Diamond Restaurant and its outdoor deck.

“We have such a rich heritage for winter snow sports, and we continue to build out our year-round offerings,” Oujiri said, calling Buck Hill an “experience destination.”

The council required Buck Hill to resubmit plans and a second noise study that shows compliance with city and state noise regulations before holding concerts.

Another condition is that concert music must end by 9:30 p.m. and lighting be shut off by 10 p.m.

Buck Hill said it expects to draw more than 15,000 people to the inaugural series.

Concerts will feature opening bands, food trucks and apparel tents.

Ticket options are:

• VIP, $99, with a private viewing area on the Black Diamond deck and a lower level patio, and full indoor access including cash bar, food menu and indoor amenities including air conditioning. VIP tickets are limited to 250 per show.

• General admission, $35. Bring lawn chairs of blankets. General admission tickets are limited to 3,500 per show.

• General admission four pack, $125. Purchase one ticket for all four nights.

Tickets are available at www.buckhill.com/buckconcertseries.

Parking will be $10, pre-purchased with tickets. Buck Hill will provide shuttle service from nearby lots. There will be a drop-off area for carpooling and ride services.
