So many places to rock out this summer! Portland, TAKE MY MONEY!

Plans for a large outdoor music venue in Portland have come fruition. The Thompson’s Point outdoor venue has a capacity of 5,000 attendees, 2,000 more than the Maine State Pier. In addition to the great scenery, the venue will be tied into Portland Trails for convenient walking and biking access.

The venue is operated by general manager of The State Theatre, Lauren Wayne.

So far, songwriter Ingrid Michaelson will take the stage June 28. Primus and Dinosaur Jr. are also set to perform at Thompson’s Point on Monday, July 27.

The venue is located on the southern tip of the peninsula.
