Heart and Lynyrd Skynyrd at Musikfest 2010, KISS at Montage

Musikfest 2010 Bethlehem PA

Nancy Wilson of Heart

It’s festival week here in the Lehigh Valley PA with Bethlehem’s Musikfest! This ten day festival runs August 6th through the 15th, and boasts over 300 performers! During Musikfest the streets of downtown Bethlehem are closed and 14 stages host a huge range of local to nationally known musical performers.

Musikfest is presented by ArtsQuest, a nonprofit arts organization, and all proceeds from the festival help support The Banana Factory (ArtsQuest’s community arts center and gallery in Bethlehem, PA) as well as other local nonprofit groups.

I’m a huge music fan and really look forward to Musikfest every year. Last night I got to see Heart, which was a long time coming for me, as I’ve been a huge fan for 20+ years and this was my first time seeing them live! The previous night I saw Lynyrd Skynyrd, another long awaited show – and both concerts were just outstanding. Here are a few photos I took at each concert!

KISS at Montage in Scranton PA

Thanks to a friend, I was able to see KISS in Scranton PA on the following Sunday, August 15th. They were awesome, as usual. The best was that we didn't even know we had front row seats until we got there...the tickets said "row C" so we assumed we were third row...until we got there and found out the rows started with C!
