Borderland – A Festival Without Boundaries, Sat, Sep 17 – Sun, Sep 18, Knox Farm State Park

WNY summers mean cramming in as much live entertainment as we can while the weather is still hot. Whether you’re into alt, pop, jazz, R&B, country, rock, you name it, there’s a venue in town with a show for you. To help you find where you should be and when you should be there, we’ve complied the ultimate summer concert guide.

Grab your favorite band tee, a couple friends, and plan a tailgate because there is no shortage in concerts this summer!
