Blue Circle Seat Passes:

Once again, Blue Circle Seat Passes will be offered for FREE to fans that enjoy sitting “up close” in reserved seats (first 27 rows) and under cover for opening acts and headlining performances during Summerfest.  Show specific, Blue Circle Seat Passes will provide the bearer with access to a specific reserved Blue Circle seat in the lower bowl starting at 7:00 pm on the performance date of the listed opening act and headliner.  The lower bowl of the permanent seating area (known as the Blue Circle Section) accommodates approximately 2,500 attendees for each show.  An additional 2,500 bleacher seats and viewing/standing areas for approximately 5,000 attendees are open and do not require passes, similar to other ground stage operations.
