Following the release of Ontario’s revised “Step 3” regulations for outdoor events, Republic Live is pleased to announce an updated format for the ‘Endless Summer Series’ at Burl’s Creek Event Grounds this summer.

Patrons no longer have to purchase their own four-person reserved section as individual tickets are now available. The new “lawn section” is an unreserved section for fans to enjoy the concert at the best price available. However, limited quantities remain for those wanting to reserve a private section within the concert bowl. Starting at 10 a.m. today, fans can purchase individual tickets, either as a full weekend or single day pass for any concert at Burl’s Creek.

“We are pleased to offer Lawn Seating for all events, that will be sold in any number of ticket quantities. Fans can sit, stand or dance within the Lawn Section of the concert bowl where mask rules will be in place except when eating or drinking. We will continue to offer private seating areas for up to four patrons, as previously announced. Those seating areas will be the closest to the stage and while in their assigned area patrons from the same household will be permitted to remove their masks.”

Eva Dunford, Co-Founder of Republic Live, also shared her excitement stating: “We are open.... Three simple words that now mean so much. The fact that we will be opening gates in less than two weeks is truly music to my ears. The team has kept the venue looking pristine for the long-anticipated return of fans and the grass has never looked better! It really feels like a new beginning. The Endless Summer Series gives everyone a chance to reunite safely in the great outdoors, dance to your favourite music and not have to participate in another zoom call.”

The series kicks off on July 30 with three days of Canada’s best tribute bands starting at $21.99 per day or $44.99 for the entire weekend, with powered RV or tent camping available. Republic Live, also welcomes back campers August 6 and 7 on what would have been the traditional Boots and Hearts weekend with concerts featuring Brett Kissel, Tebey, Jess Moskaluke & more! The venue will also host Our Lady Peace and The Trews for a rock filled weekend on Aug 13th and 14th.
