Summer concert Scene
by Tracy Krupitzer, Lifestyles Editor

Summer is by far the greatest time for concerts. All the outdoor festivals usually happen during the season and a lot of acts also decide to tour over the break, to ensure that kids can make it on weeknights. It’s very strategic. It’s also a benefit to music fans everywhere. Here are a few concerts happening this summer in Cleveland.
